Kevin Durant appeared at Nike's House of Hoops in New Orleans earlier today to discuss his excitement for yet another All-Star Game. He'll be starting in this Sunday's game, voted in by the fans yet again, and wearing a special edition of his KD VI sneaker dressed up in a Gumbo League theme.

Towards the close of the question and answer session at House Of Hoops, host Big Tigger presented KD with his actual size 18 game shoes for Sunday. While the shoes are the same as what's available at retail, Durant's pair also included a custom "KD" logo lightning bolt jewel in gold.

Check out Durant's surprise gift from Nike Basketball below.
