Video: ‘Iceman’ on the evolution of the Nike Blazer, Kevin Durant & more


San Antonio Spurs' legend George Gervin was as cool as cool can be. His silky-smooth style on the court, swagger, and his ABA basketball roots earned him the nickname "Iceman" along with his signature shot, "the finger roll" which only added to his cool persona.

Gervin was also one of the first players to sport Nike sneakers and have his own signature line – Nike Blazer.

In the video below, Gervin talks about the Nike Blazer, why he switched from Adidas to Nike, how sneakers are now a fashion-statement, and more. He also answers whether or not Thunder's Kevin Durant has a similar style of play to his own when he was in the league.
