Kevin Durant’s shoe size is all the rave the day after the Brooklyn Nets got eliminated from playoff contention.
Durant scored 48 points in his Brooklyn Nets’ 115-111 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks in overtime of Game 7 of their Eastern Conference semifinals series on Saturday. It was Durant that got them to overtime with a buzzer-beating jumper from deep at the end of regulation.
It could’ve been the game winner, but his foot was barley on the 3-point line.
Durant said after the game he thought he had won Game 7.
“But my big a– foot stepped on the line,” Durant said. “I just saw how close I was to ending their season with that shot.”
NBA writer Royce Young recalled that Durant shared in a feature for Chris Herring that he wears a full shoe size larger when he plays basketball. That extra shoe size may have cost the team a chance to advance the Eastern Conference Finals.
