Come one, come all, and witness the spectacle that is the new age ‘shout debate’ sports talk. From top paid television talents to radio hosts, podcasters in their room and even the UPS delivery guy, everyone has an opinion.

Kevin Durant has gone from one of the NBA’s beloved stars to a polarizing figure all with one decision to join the Golden State Warriors. Whether you agree with his choice to become part of the 73 win squad from 2016 or you just completely hate him for doing it, everyone has an opinion. I mean, we can’t just let the guy pick and choose where he wants to spend the prime years of his career, can we? What kind of craziness is that!

Whatever side you land on the Kevin Durant debate, there’s only one thing that’s clear right now. Kevin Durant is an NBA champion and he’s also an NBA Finals MVP. There are no ways to debate those facts. It’s time to just accept it.

One way to come closer to complying with reality is by taking a page out of those in this new ad from Nike. The talking heads spend time debating Kevin Durant. His size, commitment, and will to win all come up, as they usually do in pointless debates, and by the end they just shut up. Hopefully many other do the same.

Check out the video below, courtesy of Nike. One of their top signature athletes is getting his crowning moment immortalized in a new commercial complete with the ‘Shimmy Shimmy Ya’ instrumental. Shout out to ODB aka Ol’ Dirty Bastard and the Wu-Tang Clan.
