Kevin Durant Wears 'Aunt Pearl' Nike KD 6 (1)

words // Brandon Richard

Like he did last season, Kevin Durant chose Valentine's Day (or the closest game day to it) to pay tribute to his late Aunt Pearl.

In the first half of last night's game against the Lakers, Durant wore the 'Aunt Pearl' Nike KD 6, which sports a pink floral upper in remembrance of Pearl's battle with breast cancer. The shoe will officially hit retail on February 27, with proceeds benefiting the Kay Yow Cancer Fund.

Read on for a few more shots from the game.
