Kevin Durant #35 of the Oklahoma City Thunder talks in the press conference
Kevin Durant's backpack emerges as an improbable postseason star.
Got your back
While most NBA players spice up their postgame conference attire with hip glasses or expensive headphones, Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant’s accessory of choice has become an unlikely postseason icon. Check out the many ways Durant and his backpack have elevated “nerdy” to “fashion forward.”
Head of the class
Durant often pairs his signature backpack with collared shirts buttoned up to the neck. With his bag’s middle strap connected, Durant looks less like an NBA star and more like a confused high school freshman shuffling to his locker after school.
Although the NBA’s dress code requires players to wear “business casual” clothing during league-related activities, Durant doesn’t let the rules stifle his unique style.
Keep it simple
The contents of the famous bag might surprise you. Durant recently told reporters that he uses it to carry his iPad, cell phone, headphones, charger and Bible.
Want a Kevin Durant backpack of your own? You’re in luck — Nike recently announced that a replica bag will soon be sold as a part of Nike’s and Durant’s KD III clothing line.
