The road to recovery is littered with important milestones. For Kevin Durant, who has largely avoided the spotlight since tearing his Achilles in the NBA Finals last June, those firsts are now coming in rapid succession. For the first time since joining the Brooklyn Nets, Durant went on a road trip with his new team. For the first time, he was seen playing four-on-four and dunking in a video posted by his brother Tony. And he’s rocking the footwear required of a superstar—Travis Scott’s collaborative Air Jordan 1 Low, to be exact—in his first Big Fit of the Day.
There are two ways to remind people of your imminent, league-stomping return: put out a series of season-ticket advertisements crowning yourself the King of New York, or show off your legit seven-foot frame on the bench in an all-black Big Fit. Durant is doing both. Skulking the sidelines in sneakers and a trim black suit? This is why they call him the Slim Reaper, and it’s why we call him the Big Fit of the Day.
