Kevin Durant was without a nickname in a Foot Locker commercial last summer.

Heading into the second half of the 2013-14 NBA season, the Oklahoma City Thunder star forward has decided on what he wants to be called.

The media and fans have been calling him "Durantula" and "Slim Reaper." But he doesn't like either of those.

Durant told Grantland's Bill Simmons on Friday that he would like to now be known as "The Servant."

"I like to serve everybody. My teammates. Ushers at the game. The fans," Durant said. "I know it's kinda weird to make your own nickname, but I like that one better."

Now, he can finally be more than just "Kevin."
