Durant in Nikes

Cue the Mars Blackmon clips, Kevin Durant's shoe saga has apparently ended, and he'll be wearing Nikes this year.

Sportsbusinessradio.com is reporting the story, and, honestly, I couldn't care less. I've avoided this story for the past couple of weeks, because I just don't see why anybody cares about this stuff. I like the shoe ads like everyone else, but is it really all that interesting what type of shoes any athlete wears? I can see if you're in high school or junior high and you want to emulate your idol, but c'mon, should a 35-year-old man really give a crap what kind of shoes the forward on his favorite basketball team wears?

Maybe I'm just getting old ...

Don't look at me, I've two pairs of shoes--one for everyday and one for mowing the lawn. (OK, I've also got one pair of "fancy" shoes for the rare times I have something fancy to go to).

Now Chunky is a another story--I think he has one for every year he's been alive.

It must be nice to rack in the huge dollars, but I could only wish the movement towards affordable quality shoes would continue. With a guy like Durant or Oden joining the Starbury team, this variation would have taken a step further.

Despite all the efforts by Stern to massage the image, the NBA is a cash cow, plain and simple.
