Kevin Durant’s draft commercial (Video)

Leave it to Nike to steal the show during Thursday’s NBA draft with a commercial.

The shoe brand debuted an ad just before the draft began to promote Kevin Durant’s new KD VI shoe. The spot depicts a shirts vs. skins draft in Durant’s home town of Seat Pleasant, Md., the same type of drafting that happens in elementary school gym classes.

Here’s the ad. Go, shirts.
