Baller Kevin Durant signs lifetime deal with Nike, sports and lifestyle brand

Durant becomes the third National Basketball Association (NBA) star to land a lifetime deal with Nike, following both Michael Jordan and LeBron James. The 34-year-old’s relationship with the company goes back to 2007, and the partnership has seen 15 sets of shoes released up to now.

It is unconfirmed if the lifetime deal is simply an extension of his existing deal to cover the remainder of Durant’s playing days, with the guarantee of the retirement package also activated, or a new deal entirely. 

“When I first signed with Nike, I couldn’t have dreamed of how far we’d go in this partnership,” Durant told the Boardroom, the media company he co-founded.

“We’ve done amazing work creatively and philanthropically. We’ve traveled the world together and built a business that will now last forever. I’m excited for the future and honored to be in rare company with this deal.”

Durant’s expanding role with Nike will likely see more philanthropic collaborations between the sportswear giant and the Durant Family Foundation. He has increased his sports investment portfolio through his Thirty Five Ventures, and more deals could see him place on 2023’s 50 Most Marketable Athletes list.
