    over 10 years? He's coming off his 7 year 60 million sponsorship with Nike.


    Sales for Durant’s Nike signature sneakers jumped 400% last year from $35 million to $175 million in the U.S., according to research firm SportsOneSource.

    Wonder if that will carry over to Under Armor. :dontknow:

    It's all about how much they think he can bring in annual shoe sales, if under armor has three percent of the market (which I think they do) and they get Durant and it goes to say 7 that four percent gross sales over 5-10 years could be a billion

    There are rocket scientists on this stuff man, it's more important then putting a guy on Mars

    Hate to sound old, but my biggest take from this thread is there are some people with too much money buying some fugly ass shoes.

    Some mornings, the Foot Lockers in NYC have lines a city block long before opening. And I don't even think there is any shoe debuting. People love their sneakers.

    I haven't bought any Nike sneakers in years.

    That amount of money is really sickening. I support capitalism, but JFC.
