Once a Longhorn, always a Longhorn.
Oklahoma City Thunder's Kevin Durant only attend the University of Texas for one year, but time and time again, he has proven his love for the school.
The latest example comes from the Longhorn basketball equipment staff that tweeted out a picture of a Nike backpack and a pair of Durant's KD VI Galaxy shoes. Apparently, Durant donated the swag to every member of the men's basketball team.
But it gets even better because the Nike swoosh on the Galaxy shoes glow in the dark.
The old saying goes, fake it until you make it. So if the Longhorns aren't good this season, at least they can look good!
Thanks @KDTrey5 for the travel swag. The boys love it. pic.twitter.com8qlsThCDNO UTBasketballEquipmnt (@UTBasketballEQ) October 31, 2013

Wednesday marked the opening night for the Oklahoma City Thunder in Salt Lake City. They opened up against a young Utah Jazz squad. The difference in the matchup was clearly the superstar forward from Washington D.C.
Kevin Durant scored 42 points Wednesday and led the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 101-98 victory to start out on the right foot. Durant, the three-time scoring title recipient...
Better get used to it, Thunder fans.This is your team now.
But you kind of knew it was going to be this way, right? You had to.
As expected, Kevin Durant was outstanding, and as expected the rest of the team did pretty much just enough.
Good thing it this one was against Utah because this stuff doesnt work very well in the playoffs.
Worry about that later. For now enjoy Durant...
MINNEAPOLIS -- Ultra-talented, personable and now world-renowned, Kevin Durant receives adulation at almost every stop the Oklahoma City Thunder make.
His name alone sells tickets in most NBA markets. Fans wait outside the team hotel to snap photos and perhaps get an autograph they'll either sell for a lot of money or place in a prominent spot at their home.
In case everybody forgot — and from the sound of it, a lot of people did — Kevin Durant is pretty talented.
Two seasons ago, Durant raised his game to its highest levels yet and led the Oklahoma City Thunder to their first NBA Finals. Last season, Durant was arguably better than ever once again, until running mate Russell Westbrook suffered a knee injury that undercut the Thunder’s...
MINNEAPOLIS -- To Kevin Martin, the conversations when No. 35 in light blue comes to town are old hat.
There's no stopping Kevin Durant. Corey Brewer, Dante Cunningham and whoever else coach Rick Adelman throws at Oklahoma City's superstar small forward will try Friday night at the Target Center, but they shouldn't plan on succeeding.
"You can't really get...

Nikola Pekovic had 15 points and 10 rebounds for Minnesota, which played surprisingly good defense against Kevin Durant and the Thunder. Derrick Williams had...
Forget Kevin Durant, Tim Duncan, Dwight Howard or any team east of San Bernardino. The most appealing rivalry in the NBA's Western Conference - and probably the entire league - played out in that battle of words, bumps and sublime virtuosity between the Warriors and Clippers on Thursday night.
Some say the Warriors have the most complete starting five in the league. Nobody has...
Reggie Jackson barreled into a set defender on a fast break, picking up an offensive foul and erasing an easy-scoring opportunity.
Steven Adams was overly aggressive hedging out on a side pick-and-roll, ultimately slamming into a Utah ballhandler and getting slapped with a defensive foul.
Jeremy Lamb gave up the baseline, lowering his shoulder into an attacking offensive player...
MINNEAPOLIS -- Vast potential, packed into a 6.9-second window.
Desperately seeking to provide Oklahoma City some semblance of momentum, Kevin Durant misfired on a contested 3-pointer. Kevin Love tore down the rebound, led Ricky Rubio with an arching outlet pass, then watched his ace point guard bounce a perfect helper to a loping Nikola Pekovic.
The big man lay home two of his...
The stats do not reveal Corey Brewer's worth.
While three teammates recorded double-doubles and the Timberwolves rolled to a 100-81 victory over the defending Northwest Division champion Oklahoma City Thunder at Target Center, Friday night belonged to Brewer as much as anyone.
A wiry 6-foot-9 forward who weighs in at 188 pounds, Brewer was assigned to guard Kevin Durant, who...
The Minnesota Timberwolves and Oklahoma City Thunder needed big nights from their superstars to wrap up narrow season-opening victories.
Now Kevin Love and Kevin Durant will try to outdo each other Friday night in Minnesota.
Unlike Durant, who has finished second in MVP voting in back-to-back years, Love has some work to do to reclaim his status as one of the NBA's elite after...
