NBA's Kevin Durant: 'Nobody Wants to Play in Under Armours'

But could they get a chance to watch him ever again?

"I think a lot of kids, to be honest, they don't choose Maryland unless they play in like an Under Armour [AAU] system coming up", said Durant, a Maryland native who played collegiately at Texas. Durant is Nike's clear No. 2 behind LeBron James (although Kyrie Irving's sneaker sold more previous year than KD), and his signature shoe just got it's 10th installment ahead of the NBA Finals, and there has been speculation that Nike possibly aided in pushing him to Golden State - Draymond Green, the most vocal recruiter of Durant, is a Nike athlete.

"Good question. Who knows?"

"You feel for them when it comes to that, but you never know what happens on the business side". The expectation is that he will decline his player option for the 2018-19 season in order to sign a lucrative long-term deal with the Warriors. The recent NBA Finals MVP Durant joined Bill Simmons for a chat on The Ringer's podcast network and revealed that he believes kids simply don't want to play in Under Armour basketball sneakers and that might be why his hometown university, the Maryland Terrapins have a hard time attracting talent to their program.

".I don't want to put a precise timeline on it, but it's inevitable at some point we'll start looking at growth of franchises".
