Since he entered the NBA as a rookie in 2007, Durant has been a part of the Nike family.
Due to the fact that Kevin Durant signed a lifetime endorsement agreement with Nike, the star forward for the Phoenix Suns will be wearing Nike shoes for the rest of his life. As a result of the pact, Kevin Durant joins Michael Jordan and LeBron James as the only other NBA players to have such an agreement with Nike. Since he was in his first season in the NBA in 2007, Durant has been a part of an endorsement deal with Nike, and to this day, he has released 15 signature shoes with the company.
“When I first signed with Nike, I couldn’t have dreamed how far we’d go in this partnership,” Durant said of the lifetime pact, as reported by Boardroom. We have accomplished remarkable things both in terms of our creative output and our charitable giving. We have spent our time together seeing the world and building a company that will now last for all of eternity. With this agreement, I’m delighted to be in such elite company, and I’m thrilled for what the future holds.”

In the course of his career in the NBA, Kevin Durant has not only been selected to play on 13 All-Star teams but also won two championships, two Most Valuable Player awards in the NBA Finals, and one MVP award for the regular season. All of this was achieved while he was wearing Nikes, so it is easy to see why the corporation is so enthusiastic about maintaining their association with him.
“As one of the best basketball players in the world, Kevin Durant has been an important part of the Nike family for the past 16 years,” said John Slusher, the executive vice president of global sports marketing for Nike. “We are excited about the opportunity to continue to serve the upcoming generation of athletes together.”
