(Video) NBA: Fans Think Jordan Brand & Russell Westbrook Took A Shot At Kevin Durant In This New Ad

Along with the release of the coveted Retro Air Jordan I next week, Jordan Brand is also releasing the “Banned” Air Jordan 31 the same day. With the date fast approaching they released a new ad starring Russell Westbrook, who is the main ambassador of the sneaker. The issue at hand however is not the sneaker itself but more so the wording used in the ad. As Russell starts to run and take off, a voice says “Some run, some make runways”. Could the “run” be in reference to Kevin Durant leaving for the Warriors to try and win a championship? And the “runways” be in reference to Russell extending his contract to stay in OKC? It’s doubtful that the Jordan Brand being associated with Nike would actually take a shot at a player under the same umbrella but your guess is as good as ours. However plenty of fans on Instagram certainly believe it’s a shot in KD’s direction.
