Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant is a well-researched sneakerhead. Despite his surly online persona, Durant regularly chats about basketball shoes with fans and members of the media on Twitter.

The perennial NBA All-Star went out of his way to brag about Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James’ signing line. Yesterday, Durant shared a video on his Instagram Story of a visit he made to a sneaker museum.

While we’re not sure of the exact location, it could be the recently opened LeBron James Innovation Center on Nike’s campus. Watch the brief video below to watch Durant explore the setup.

Durant looked through the glass at prototypes and unreleased versions of James’ signature line. Although he had seen and done it all throughout his 14-year NBA career, Durant was clearly enjoying the experience.

Durant specifically pointed the camera at three shoes, advising Nike, “I should have dropped them, fam.” He’s not wrong. James has one of the best signing lines among active NBA players. But if some of these unreleased designs had made it to production, it would have been a game-changer for James’ sneaker history.
