Kevin Durant And Nike Basketball Unveil Team USA Uniforms For 2012 London Olympics

On Tuesday afternoon Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant was featured along with Kobe Bryant, LeBron James and Deron Williams as Nike Basketball and Team USA Basketball revealed their official uniforms for the 2012 Olympics in London this summer.

Pics and discussion after the jump.

Nike has been outfitting Team USA since they took over the contract from Champion many years ago and they have spared no expense on creating an entire line for America's top basketball players. You can see a full photo of Durant wearing the home uniform here, along with the road uniforms and team shoes here.

Of course, the one thing that has to be intriguing if you are a fan of the Oklahoma City Thunder, is the inclusion of Deron Williams in the original promotion of the unveiling. Seeing how Nike wouldn't risk putting a player in their marketing that wouldn't be on the team, one could ask how this will have an effect on the chances of Russell Westbrook making the team.

Westbrook was a member of Team USA Basketball when they made their trip to Spain to participate in the 2010 FIBA World Championships. That team featured a roster of Derrick Rose, Chauncey Billups, Stephen Curry and Westbrook at the point guard position. For the 2012 Olympics however, Rose along with Williams and Chris Paul have to be receiving top consideration, which could potentially squeeze Westbrook out.

To be fair, Westbrook played plenty of minutes at the off guard position along with point guard, which could give Team USA head coach Mike Krzyzewski some versatility in his lineup.

As for now, lets just enjoy the dope jerseys, shoes and shorts. (Hey Nike, can I get the shorts...please?)
