Kevin Durant gave Bubba Watson Game Six shoes after OKC playoff win

Kevin Durant starred for the Oklahoma City Thunder last night, helping his team progress to the Western Conference Finals with 39 points and 16 rebounds in their 104-98 victory over the LA Clippers.

Quite a performance indeed for the recently crowned MVP who put everything into the win as usual.

Which makes us question whether golfing star Bubba Watson would have appreciated the gift offered to him by Durant immediately after the end of the game.

As shown in the video above, immediately after finishing his media obligations, Durant bent down, untied his shoes and made his way over to hand them over to Watson who was waiting courtside to congratulate the OKC star.

Whilst Watson will clearly have appreciated the gesture, and the opportunity to own a piece of history in the form of KD's game-worn playoff sneakers - you couldn't blame him for holding them at arms length after witnessing another tireless performance from Durant.

Watson might want to invest in some odor remover before he puts them on display.

In all serious though, it was a nice gesture from Durant who continues to portray himself as one of the most humble guys in the NBA.

KD and the Thunder will face the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference Finals, with Game One scheduled for Monday May 19
