The Golden State Warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 5, winning their second championship in three years and their first since adding Kevin Durant to their roster.
Durant has long been a lightning rod for sports debate, even before making his most controversial decision yet — signing as a free agent with the team that beat his Oklahoma City Thunder in the playoffs, and creating the ultimate “super team.”
Shortly after the final buzzer of the NBA Finals, Nike shot back at those critics with a new Kevin Durant commercial titled, “Debate this.” It features a number of sports talking heads criticizing Durant during various points of his career, only to be silenced at the end when KD wins his first ring.
Critics have been talking down Kevin Durant his entire career, but there’s no argument that can change this fact: KD is now a world champion. #DebateThis
