Kevin Durant is going to be a free agent in a few weeks, and many believe there’s a strong chance he could leave the Golden State Warriors. Some NBA fans think that Nike, which is partnered with Durant, may have accidentally given away his destination.
The tee shirt, dubbed the KD Nike Dri-FIT, features all of Durant’s basketball-playing destinations on the back. The last one listed is San Francisco.
For those unaware, the Warriors are moving venues from Oakland to San Francisco this offseason. So perhaps the shirt is suggesting that Durant will re-sign with the Warriors when he becomes a free agent.
Some are wondering if Nike knows where Durant plans to sign.
Nike has this @KDTrey5 shirt on the site that has all the Teams/Cities KD has played for. The last 2 are Oakland & San Francisco. GSW last season in Oakland is this season. Next season they are in SF. Did @Nike confirm KD back to Warriors? #NBAFinals #Warriors #NBA pic.twitter.com/SsdX2iTlKd

Fans of the Knicks, Nets and Clippers wouldn’t be thrilled if Durant stuck around in Golden State.
It’s hard to see Nike making this big of a mistake. It’s also very possible that Durant himself hasn’t made a decision on free agency. Obviously, in that case, nobody would know where he’s headed.
Durant’s team has Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Wednesday night. Durant’s calf injury has kept him out for seven straight games.
