We’ve all seen what Kevin Durant can do on the hardwood. The dazzling highlights, the unstoppable scoring, the six All-Star appearances, the MVP award – we know he’s an archetype for the future of basketball. He’s a hybrid player, with a do-everything skill-set. But is Kevin Durant a humble, quiet kid from Washington, D.C. or a ruthless, cold-blooded competitor? Or is he somehow both at once?

That’s the idea behind Nike Basketball’s latest podcast as it sheds light on both Durant and his latest signature kicks, the KD 8. Featuring KD himself, the podcast includes insights from a number of people in the superstar’s inner circle — including actor Mark Wahlberg, rapper Wale, Nike designer Leo Chang and Durant’s childhood coach and godfather Taras “Stink” Brown — to find out what makes him such a fearless competitor, explore his unpredictable attacking style of play and share the stories that provided inspiration for the perfection of his latest signature shoe.

The inside story of the KD 8 can be streamed above or downloaded now via iTunes.
