View Full Version : Durant: Come to OKC if you want to endorse me

Yet this makeshift moment served as the scene from which Durant would promote his latest endorsement deal, a partnership with Degree Men.
The event exemplified how Durant, the Oklahoma City Thunder's franchise player, has bucked the allure of big cities and bright lights which often lead to big dollars and instead has seized sponsorships in small-market Oklahoma City.

"I always told myself if I play the game the right way, if I always get better, things like this are going to come to me," Durant said. "I don't have to go other places just to get this.

"I don't want to sound like a prima donna. But if companies want to come out here and be a part of what I have going on, they're going to have to come to Oklahoma City."

That's precisely what's taking place before our eyes.


"For companies to come to Oklahoma City means a lot," Durant said. "That's one thing that I wanted to do. I never wanted to go searching for anything. I never wanted to beg for any endorsements. Just let it all come to me by my play."

This guy offers hope for small market teams that there are players out there who will be loyal to your team and city and not bolt for brighter lights once the opportunity arises; sort of like the anti-Bosh/Melo/LeBron.

Thank you Mr. Durant :)

Well seeing as how he's a top player at such a young age, and how he's turned around his franchise.. It would be a dumb move if they didn't go looking for him.

Most superstars bring in advertisement dollars and business to their local communities. Seriously, you need look no further than what LeBron did for the Cleveland economy.

As for Durant, I truly do appreciate his campaign for the small markets, but I think he should be careful not to put himself in the position of being called a turncoat, liar, betrayer, Benedict Arnold, etc., if somehow his relationship with OKC should sour or his future wife/family determine that they want him to take his game to a different environment. No one knows what the future holds, especially for a professional athlete. Not even Durant.

He should be the face of the NBA. Unlike Kobe and Lebron he is very likeable on and off the court. He really has proven himself a sid role model all around. And there is very little to criticise in both his game and personality.

Well, Kobe and LeBron were golden boys at 22 as well. Not saying Durant will create PR disasters like the other two have, but you never know what the future holds.

Duuuude, whatheeeeheckk man, Kelvin Durant is like the best player ever, why you raining on the parade? Hes as loyal as they come, and if the Kelvinator leaves OKC theres no hope for anything. Cause im telling you man, I heard stories where Kelvin only drinks Paul Newman's lemonade, even though theres other delicious flavors out there like Minute Maid lemonade (delicious!), or Country time Lemonade (ohhhmahgawd), or even homemade lemonade (good god da have sum!). My cousin always sells him somthat mary j, and one time the product wasnt as strong, and he was like "yo, whats up with that hoops' cousin?" and my cousins like "oh mannn, sorry Kelvin you the greatest, I f'ed up." and then hes like "nah its cool man, you my guy."

Once upon a time, Kobe and Lebron were both loved..

Eventually, people start to hate when players are at the top of the league for so long. Especially if one of them does something at least remotely wrong.

It will be no different for Durant, that is if he conducts himself the proper way. But when [and if] he starts winning championships, the majority of the NBA universe [fans] will be coming down on him as well. Have to give it a bit of time.

Do you really find comedic value in figuring out a way to mess up every name you write? Of the one's I have seen I've got to say that Dwite Hayward is by far the best. Keep up the good -- and by good I mean: tired, bizarre and pretty corny -- work.

He isn't winning a championship in OKC...

Durant will fall victim to the trap... The Allen Iverson, Dirk Nowitzki, Tracy McGrady trap that proves that players have to leave the smaller markets to win championships...

Jordan was the only person in history to turn a perennial loser into a winner...

Wrap your mind around that one... You have to ellipse Michael Jordan to win a championship or you can go to LA, NY or Miami and have one delivered to you...

LeBron came close... However, if LeBron can't turn over a franchise without significant help, no active player in the NBA could have done it at any point in their career...

It's not a matter of " if " but when he realizes his fate as a member of the Thunder organization and he leaves, he will be just as scrutinized as LBJ....

None of these organizations are considered top markets for basketball in the NBA...

Toronto doesn't have enough of a following...

Houston is pushed out by big brothers San Antonio and Dallas...

Orlando has been playing 2nd fiddle to the Heat with the exception of the last couple of seasons...

It returned back this season...

Yes major markets are breeding grounds for NBA superstars because of the salary cap... It sounds like an odd statement but, when you talk about the best of the best, they are all going to get max contracts...

The only avenue they have to earn on top of their NBA salary is by way of endorsements... What better way to gain endorsements than by playing in a major market where everyone will see your face...

Does the name Tim Duncan mean anything to you? How about the entire 2004 Pistons team? To go back even further, how about Hakeem Olajuwon, Isiah Thomas, Bill Walton, Moses Malone, or even the 1979 Sonics (Sikma, DJ, Gus Williams etc...). Durant is in a position, with the Lakers set to age soon and no other really strong upcoming team in the west except maybe Sacramento, to control the western conference in a few years. Durant is good enough to win as the best player on a team, Westbrook is good enough to be the #2 on a title team, and they have a bunch of nice role players in place, I think they're one move away from getting to that contender level. LeBron never won because he only had a bunch of role players and scrubs, give him Russell Westbrook, Jeff Green et all and I'm sure he'd have a ring by now.

u know toronto is a top 4 nba market right ? and houston is a wayy bigger market than san antonio. miami isnt really a ''big'' market. ur saying rings are brought on depending on the market size of the team.

really i dont know what ur saying.. are u saying u havve to play for teams like LA for stars to get noticed well let me introduce u to vince carter and
durant,ohh and are u forgetting friging lebron james !! u say u have to be in big market to win multiple titles well let me introduce u to tim duncan,

you crazy the blazers are hurting at center only reason they lost was because they had to play a SF at PF because LA fouled out...PORTLAND WILL be the team to beat in the west once the lake show get old! but the lake show will just get new players they dont stay down long portland has ROY,BATUM,ALDRIDGE,Up and coming PG Johnson, and if greg oden can stay healthy theres a mean lineup not to mention the lineup and the draft picks we have if we can trade Rudy Fernandez for a 1st we have 3 1st round draft picks this year or 2 this year and 2 next DONT OVERRATE TEAMS ASK KOBE WHO'S BETTER ROY OR DURANT

Look this is what happens: Lebron and Kobe were young and spoiled, they were very successful young and wanted more and more, as the bigger of a star they became, the higher they would climb up that mountain and at that point there is only one way to go and its down, once they go down that mountain, they start to climb it all over again just like what Kobe did and what Lebron will begin to do. KD is still climbing the mountain for the first time, he already has a scoring title, next will be an MVP, then he'll start seeing better talent around him, but something will bring him down that top of the mountain IF he does ever get to that point of becoming the best player in the NBA. There has been many situations where this is true, look at Magic, went down that mountain when he discovered he had AIDS. MJ when he left to play baseball and came back to re-climb that same mountain. Basically almost every player has their Highs and Lows, no one stays on top for their whole career, so yes KD's time will come and he will fall just like everyone else

His name is Tim Duncan and he's the best power forward to ever play the game. They may have had Robinson, but they certainly don't win any titles without Duncan. Hell, the Spurs are going to be, at worst, the dark horses again this year.

The lights are the "brighest" in Miami right now. @ of the best 5 players in the NBA on the same team, the lights will be on in full force.

Do you watch ESPN or NBA TV these days? Bosh is getting more attention after a loss now than he did when he went to the playoffs with Toronto.

wow people notice role players nowadays ;)

Once upon a time, Kobe and Lebron were both loved..

Eventually, people start to hate when players are at the top of the league for so long. Especially if one of them does something at least remotely wrong.

It will be no different for Durant, that is if he conducts himself the proper way. But when [and if] he starts winning championships, the majority of the NBA universe [fans] will be coming down on him as well. Have to give it a bit of time.

I still like kobe, but kobe cheated on his wife which is actually a big underrated reason why people dont idolize him as much

This Durant D sucking fest is starting to get nauseating. I'm kinda starting to hope that a white girl accuses him of rape.

Why are half the people in this thread complaining about the publicity that KD receives for being the good hearted guy he is? None of these reports or stories being posted come across as "fake" or "opportunistic" like some have claimed.

Is it jealousy that your favorite player(s) is/are no longer the face of the NBA :shrug:

If you don't like people praising a "superstar" for the positive things he does, then stay out of these type of threads. If you're just looking to be negative and have NOTHING to contribute, go to the Lebron & Kobe threads where the negativity runs rampant.
