Cool nicknames abound at streetball game, Kevin Durant is called ‘Kevin’ (video)

Poor Kevin Durant. The Oklahoma City Thunder superstar may have money and fame. He may have all the accolades, respect and admiration from his NBA peers and fans alike, but when he shows up at a streetball game in a new Nike commercial, all he really wants is a cool nickname. You know, just like all the guys.

The emcee introducing all the competitors to the fans surrounding the pavement court has nifty, witty and clever monikers for all the fellas, but when the man on the mic gets to Durant, he just calls him “Kevin.”

Doesn’t really seem fair. Poor Kevin Durant.
