OKLAHOMA CITY - Kevin Durant just finished up with one of the best individual months in the NBA, but that doesn't mean he likes his new nickname.

"It's cool to have a nickname," Durant said of the Slim Reaper. "Everybody's been loving the name. I think I'm the only one that really doesn't like it too much.

Durant was asked Monday at shoot-around before the Thunder takes on Memphis about what he would think about Nike doing a special edition, Slim Reaper, shoe.

"It's not really up to me," Durant said. "If Nike wants to come out with something then they're going to come out with it. They're going to ask me, but at the end of the day, if they want to do it, they're going to do it."
