Kevin Durant wants a nickname in Nike’s latest #SummerIsSerious spot (VIDEO)

Aug 15, 2013, 2:26 PM EDT

In the Rucker Park style of playground games that take place at outdoor courts during the summer, players are often-times granted hilarious nicknames from the emcee in an effort to get the crowd hyped.

Kevin Durant, though? He’s just Kevin. Although it appears there was some miscommunication here, because he doesn’t seem all that pleased by the fact he was deprived of his moment of glorification.

      hence why he’s looking for a real one

    lol, look at the youtube still shot.

    kd, someone in the crowd is licking his lips and staring at you. funny what a snapshot can portray at certain moments ..

    as for the nickname…how about mr fantastic ? depicts heroism, as he was a hero and kd is THEE man on his team. he had high iq, as kd is a very smart player. and mr fantasic was very long, as kd is as well. plus, kd’s game is in fact, fantastic.

    Is “twig that balls” copyrighted?

    Slim Thunder.

    How about The Paradox, because he is tall like a PF but as quick as a SG? It should be something that is oriented around his game. Durantula would be good if Durant was known for his defense but he isn’t. Durantula seems forced, like Kobe’s nickname that he gave himself, Black Mamba.
