Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder will open up their 2011-12 NBA season at home against the Orlando Magic at 8 p.m. on Christmas Day. Durant and company will be looking to build on last season, when they made it to the Western Conference Finals and lost to the Dallas Mavericks in five games. Durant will be wearing a special shoe given to him by Nike for the season-opener against the Magic.
It's hard to tell what color that is? Is it a shade of gold? Is it brown? Is it a bronze color of some kind? We'll go with bronze, which is a bit of an odd choice on Christmas Day.
