Durant resigns with Nike!

As everybody waited to see if Nike would match Under Armour’s offer to keep their star Kevin Durant. At 8:10pm on August 31st. The superstar sent out a tweet that read “excited and humbled to sign back with the swoosh”.  I can’t speak for anyone else but i was excited about this news. Under Armour had put the pressure on Nike by offering Durant a deal worth $265 million for 10 years. Nike not only matched that deal but offered a little more. Nike signed Durant to a deal worth up to $300 million for 10 years. Many thought the move to Under Armour would also lure Kevin to return home and sign with the Washington Wizards when he becomes a free agent.. That would’ve been interesting to see him run beside John Wall but for now he’ll be running beside Westbrook and the rest of the OKC Thunder.
