While the Golden State Warriors were busy running up the scoreboard again last night, Kevin Durant debuted a new version of his latest signature sneaker, the Nike KD 9.

The early speculation is that this could be the Nike KD 9 Elite. There's changes in construction, such as a thin stretch fabric around the heel, an elevated collar and Engineered Mesh quarters. Thick cables also help lock in the fit. The tooling setup, including full-length Zoom cushioning, is retained.

Durant debuted the KD 8 Elite in early-March last year, so the timing for this being the KD 9 Elite wouldn't be far-fetched. Keep it locked for confirmation from Nike, as well as possible release information.
