What do an apple orchard and a basketball court have in common? A lot, if you ask Kevin Durant.

Durant, who led the league in scoring four out of the last five years, is a perfectionist and hard-working student of offensive efficiency and shot analytics. Durant views the basketball court similar to an orchard where every shot is an apple.

“I approach scoring like apple picking,” says Durant. “Keep the good ones and leave the rotten ones.”

The apple-picking concept inspired the KD7 Good Apples shoe, the latest version of Durant’s seventh signature shoe that fuses performance innovation with inspirations from Durant’s journey on and off the court. The KD7 Good Apples shoe features splashes of red and green.

The reigning MVP tailors his shooting drills around numerical imbalances and efficiency, with a philosophy based on prioritizing. This approach has become a fun competition within the game for Durant.

“Let’s say you have 40 apples on your tree,” says Durant. “I could eat about 30 of them, but I’ve begun limiting myself to 15 or 16. Let’s take the wide-open three and post-up at the nail. Those are good apples. Let’s throw out the pull-up three in transition and the step-back fade away. Those are rotten apples.”

The KD7 Good Apples shoe debuts on nike.com and at select retail locations globally on Oct. 4.

On October 2, the University of Oregon will continue a tradition of supporting the fight against the opponent that touches everyone: cancer. The Ducks will take the field wearing uniforms that honor cancer survivors and help raise awareness for the fight against women’s cancers.

“Cancer has affected so many lives and we are honored to again partner with Nike and the Kay Yow Cancer Fund to create awareness in the united fight against all cancers,” said Mark Helfrich, University of Oregon Football Head Coach.

Nike and the University of Oregon have partnered for several years during the month of October in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This year, the Ducks will wear an all-black Nike Pro Combat uniform system with pink accents, along with pink Nike Vapor Carbon Elite cleats, pink Nike Vapor Carbon Elite socks and pink Vapor Jet gloves. The pops of pink also provide an unmistakable highlight against the black baselayer and “Titanium Black Eclipse” helmet. The special edition uniforms are designed to raise awareness and stand in solidarity with the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, exemplifying the spirit of teamwork and generosity that enable the organization to battle against women’s cancers.

“The partnership between the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, Nike and the University of Oregon is very special. When good people come together for a great cause, something extraordinary happens,” said Susan Donohoe, Kay Yow Cancer Fund Executive Director. “Through this collaboration, we are able to raise awareness and funds in support of the Kay Yow Cancer Fund mission to end women’s cancers.”

The Kay Yow Cancer Fund will also make a $100,000 research grant to Oregon Health & Science University Knight Cancer Institute in support of young women’s breast cancer research project.

Special-edition black and pink University of Oregon jerseys, hats and T-shirts are available for purchase on nike.com, and a portion of the proceeds from each sale benefits the Kay Yow Cancer Fund.

ABOUT THE KAY YOW CANCER FUND

The Kay Yow Cancer Fund was officially founded on Dec. 3, 2007, from the vision of the organization’s namesake Kay Yow, former North Carolina State University head women’s basketball coach. Coach Yow was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1987 before succumbing to the disease on Jan. 24, 2009. The Kay Yow Cancer Fund is a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization committed to being a part of finding an answer in the fight against women’s cancers through raising money for scientific research, assisting the underserved and unifying people for a common cause. To date, the Kay Yow Cancer Fund has supported $3.93 million in women’s cancer research and related programs focused on women’s cancers.
