Amare Stoudemire wearing Kevin Durant's signature Nike shoe, the KD II
Amar'e Stoudemire switched to wearing Kevin Durant's signature Nike shoe, the KD II, about a month ago but was uncertain about wearing it against Durant for Friday's game. But he likes the comfort and style of the shoes and stuck with them. "That's my guy," Durant said. "I appreciate that. That's why they call us Nike Mafia." When Durant says "they," he means Stoudemire, who began calling the Nike endorsers that about three years ago.
