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

IFWT_Russ

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.

50 Cent has jokes today at the expense of Kevin Durant and Carmelo Anthony. More specifically, the jokes are on their footwear, which were some polo shoes the players were wearing for a photo shoot earlier this week with Team USA. “What the fuck is it with these shoes man Damn. We ain’t gotta go out like that, they got MELO and KD in them shits wit No socks SMH”, 50 typed on Instagram while I’m assuming laughing at the same time. Of course he made sure to throw in an Effen Vodka shoutout at the end. Fif is right to have jokes in this case as the guys will likely never be wearing the shoes again. Check the gallery!

Kevin Durant & Russell Westbrook went through a lot of ups & downs during their eight years together in Oklahoma City and helped each other become the players they are today. Durant admitted earlier this month after signing with the Warriors that their friendship would probably “never be the same” but for the moment at least, it appears even talking is too much to handle. As you know, Westbrook signed a big extension to stay with the Thunder yesterday but KD wanted no parts of reaching out to his former running mate to congratulate him.
