Kevin Durant’s Basketball Never Stops Spot

by Darnell Mayberry Published: October 31, 2011

Here is Kevin Durant’s latest Nike commercial, which we first reported in The Oklahoman last Friday was coming down the pipeline. It’s a great concept and was executed flawlessly. But that’s what we’ve come to expect from Nike ads.

This one is especially cool because it’s got a shot of the actual Chesapeake Energy Arena shutting out the lights to signify the NBA lockout has stunted the game we all love. But in this “spotlight” series, helicopters flash a light on Durant and the other stars in random places to show that basketball never stops.

As previously reported, as part of this series Durant will show up at a truck stop in another spot to play with truckers. And I have since learned that Durant will appear at a family cookout as well in search of a game. Should be a cool series.
