Nike announced that they will be producing special gear to celebrate Kevin Durant's first NBA MVP award on Tuesday. The Oklahoma City Thunder star won the award almost unanimously, garnering 119 of the 125 available first-place votes. Durant also won his fourth NBA scoring title in five years this season although Nike has yet to announce a special edition KD 6 for that honor.
The Nike KD 6 will be getting the NIKEiD treatment as part of the MVP celebration. What that entails is still unknown although one can assume is that it will include special graphics and colors that will highlight Durant's amazing season. The precedent is there for limited-time NIKEiD options since they introduced the highly popular Gumbo League graphics on all of the Nike Basketball signature shoes earlier this year.
Also set to drop will be a special Nike Basketball t-shirt with MVP branding and glow-in-the-dark prints. The shirts are available now for pre-order and will be shipped out on May 15.
