Oklahoma City Thunder's Kevin Durant is having an awesome season and he is likely to take over LeBron James in the race for NBA MVP, but that isn't something that is on the mind of the star at the moment.
Today is an important day to Durant - as it's Martin Luther King Day - and with Black History Month coming up in the US in February, the forward took to Twitter to air his feelings on his involvement.
"Honored to be a part of Nike's BHM effort for the fourth year #BHM #earnthecrown http://instagram.com/p/jZRFD8TSlx/," Durant posted on Twitter earlier.
Durant is scheduled to wear Nike's specially designed shoes during games in the month of February, and they have certainly got some rave reviews on social media today. See shoes above.
Oklahoma will be hoping the new shoes will keep Durant's outstanding season on course, as the City Thunder have won three straight as they remain within half a game of Portland Trail Blazers, who are top of the Northwest Division of the Western Conference.
