KD has size-17 feet but he prefers to wear a size bigger. This preference may have cost Kevin Durant and the Brooklyn Nets a chance at winning a championship this season. When asked about the long two-pointers, KD said,
My big ass foot stepped on the line, I just saw how close I was to ending their season with that shot.
In the past when asked about why he prefers wearing a size bigger on his feet, Kevin Durant explained how it feels like he’s wearing a slipper.
These are like slippers, man, And I just try to be as efficient as I can when I create what I want out there. I don’t want something that’s too bulky. So, sometimes they may come off, but the good thing is, I can slip them back on and keep playing.
The Nets are not blaming a shoe size and KD for their loss, it just was not their day. KD proved to the world yet again, why he is one of the best players in the league.
