Kevin Durant and Steph Curry are champions once again, after the Golden State Warriors’ Game 4 win to complete their NBA Finals sweep, and Nike and Under Armour both released new ads to congratulate their respective sponsored athletes.
Nike revisited Durant’s origins and journey, tracing his path through high school in Texas and with teams such as the Seattle SuperSonics and Oklahoma City Thunder, through to the culmination of his efforts as, after tonight, a two-time champion and Finals MVP.
