Fresh off winning his first NBA Championship and NBA Finals MVP, Kevin Durant is spotlighted in a new Nike commercial. The Debate This. TV spot aired moments after the Golden State Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

The one minute commercial features sports media criticizing Durant throughout different stages of his ten year career including his controversial decision to join Steph Curry and company in Oakland. However, the star basketball player silences the critics when the Game 5 buzzer goes and the Warriors are crowned champions. 

Some media outlets have said the timing of the commercial is in poor taste but looking at all the criticism KD had to endure this season, what would have been a better time to release the commercial? 

You can debate all day about whether it was right or wrong for him to leave the Oklahoma Thunder for the team that beat him in the Western Conference Finals last year, but there isn't any debating that he is a NBA Champion.
