Jersey Monday: Kevin Durant

With the Heat and Bulls off tonight, I figured I'd take a look at the other conference finals series going on and shine a spotlight on one of my jerseys from the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Of course, I don't actually have a Thunder jersey, but I do have this spectacular Kevin Durant Seattle SuperSonics jersey from his rookie season. In support of Seattle, this -- and my green Durant jersey from that same season -- will be the only jersey I ever own to represent that franchise, at least until Seattle gets a team back.

I picked up this guy on eBay shortly after the Sonics announced their move to Oklahoma City. I think it ran me something like $40, as people were clearing out their inventory of Sonics jerseys. That's not a bad price at all for an NBA authentic, and I'll just keep it in storage until enough time has passed that it becomes cool to wear a Durant Sonics jersey as a throwback. Right now, that's really more the domain of hipsters, which couldn't be further from what I am.

Jersey Monday will continue every Monday until I run out of jerseys to spotlight. And since I’ve got more than 150 of them, that could be awhile.
