Over the past few seasons, plaid has definitely become a wardrobe staple, and it’s back again for fall 2011. If Oklahoma City Thunder guard/forward Kevin Durant isn’t wearing a polo shirt buttoned to the top, he can usually be seen rocking a long-sleeved plaid dress shirt.
TNT broadcaster Ernie Johnson called it a parachute, but it’s not. It’s a backpack, and KD is rarely seen without one off the court. Like hip-hop artist Kanye West, who made wearing a backpack stylish after the release of his College Dropout album, KD has made the backpack a must-have accessory.
What’s in KD’s backpack? Besides an iPad, Bible and multiple cell phones, KD carries his signature Skull Candy headphones and his Nike KD III’s.
