Kevin Durant thinks Brooklyn Nets Debut of New York artist Jean-Michel Basquiat-Inspired Jerseys has been incredible, and New York-based artists have always been in the team’s DNA.

Durant appeared in a postgame interview after the Nets snapped the victory by 128-119 over Phoenix Suns. He discussed his off-court stuff, such as involvement with the Nets new jersey and his Oscar-winning short film.

Jean-Michel Basquiat was an American artist who was one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. Further, Brooklyn Nets recently incorporated his art into the team’s jersey, and Durant justified that in the interview. “Biggie, Basia, Jay-Z guys like that artists really are in our DNA as a team and as an organization and as a city, so it feels good to represent a guy like that,” the Brooklyn Nets star conveyed.

Further, Durant thinks it is an honor for them to promote the legendary artist to the young generation through the Jerseys. “An artist like him to people, yeah I mean he was a very impactful artist. And a lot of you know had a lot of fans throughout his day. And I think his honor for us to represent him and his family and where he comes from through our jerseys,” the 32-year-old stated.
