Durant films Nike commercial

Kevin Durant will be featured in a Nike commercial set to begin airing in mid-December.

In more of an interview type of set-up, Durant is seen dribbling a basketball while answering personal questions about his family, his favorite moments growing up, when he knew he loved the game of basketball and what he typically does before a game.

"It’s something different,” Durant said. "It’s not scripted at all. Hopefully, it comes out pretty nice, and I hope everybody likes it.”

Durant, who filmed the commercial during a preseason road trip in late October, has already been featured in an EA Sports commercial with Washington Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas and an NBA commercial.


Chris Wilcox did not travel to Indiana with the team after spraining his right knee late in the first quarter of Sunday’s game against Atlanta. Wilcox underwent further examinations in Oklahoma City on Monday, and the injury has been diagnosed as a patella subluxation. Wilcox is listed as day-to-day.

"I think it all depends on how well the rehab goes,” said coach P.J. Carlesimo of Wilcox’s timetable for a return. "It’s going to be a pain thing. I think he’s got a lot of pain (in his leg), so it’s going to be (how he feels).”


Carlesimo said Wilcox’s minutes will go to center Robert Swift, who made his regular-season debut Sunday night against Atlanta.

"I thought he did a very good job (against Atlanta),” Carlesimo said.
