Cool advertisement, NBA. But why is LeBron wearing a Christmas stocking on his head?

New Team USA jerseys. What do you guys think, better than the last one?
thescore:

Nike has unveiled the Hyper Elite uniforms that Team USA Basketball will be wearing when they take the court at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.  Featuring 2008 Gold Medalists Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Deron Williams, Tamika Catchings and 2010 FIBA World Champion Kevin Durant, the uniforms are a slight tweak from their previous Nike uniforms with an updated USA logo.

Fear the Durantula.
He might not win his 3rd consecutive scoring title this year. He might not secure his first ever MVP this season. But don’t let that fool you, Durant’s taken his game to another level this year. 
More balance, better defense, expanded offensive arsenal, smooth ball handling, feverish facilitation with the ball in his hands and first place in the West.
Oh, and he’s still not an asshole.

The point is, this man has no life.  All he does is workout, play basketball, and talk about those two things.  And that’s exactly the kind of player I’d want on my team.
I think Kevin Durant spent his first 3 seasons playing hard and believing he could be great.  Now I think he knows, and all he has to do is play harder, so he could be one of the greatest ever.

New Tee! DURANT: BASKETBALL SAVIOR
So we here at the Off-Season blog aren’t exactly latent in our support for the future of the NBA, Kevin Durant. In fact it’s borderline fanboy at this point. Quite embarrassing, really. BUT HEY! When Durant surpasses Kobe numbers and reaches Hall of Fame status, don’t act like we never made this Durant t-shirt when he was but a 21-year old on the rise.
Oh and of course in wearing this, you also support TEAM USA. You’re not…Un-American…are you? Kidding…but seriously, it’s win/win. SUPPORT OUR HOOPS!

As we posted earlier, Kevin Durant reupped with OKC for $85 million bones over 5 years.  Just a tweet to announce the news.  This guy is the anti-LeBron. 
Durant showed up and helped coach the Thunder’s Summer League team.  And don’t forget about this gem of a quote.
I love Kevin Durant, which is why I hate him.  Super-talented, hard worker, humble guy.  If there’s a guy like this in the league and he doesn’t play for the Lakers, then I have to hate him.  It’s the Larry Bird clause in my contract.  I hate you because I love you.

Perfect timing on these covers, SLAM. Right after OKC’s win over the Celtics and ATL’s win over the Lakers. Only thing I dislike about this cover is that I wish their jerseys were still green and yellow…

My favorite part of this interview is KG’s long heavy sigh at the end. Fitting too considering ATL’s win last night over the Lakers JUST put them above Boston in the Eastern Conference. LET’S GO BOSTON! WORD APPPP!!1

Also, give Durant a few more years and it will be like “playing Michael f—ing Jordan”.
