Kevin Durant fans crowd the streets as he gives away free sneakers

The scene didn't quite compare to the chaos that decked the halls as Nike introduced a re-release of an Air Jordan sneaker from 15 years ago, thankfully, but that didn't stop the Oklahoma City area from being snarled in traffic jams on Friday as Oklahoma City Thunder All-Star Kevin Durant gave away pairs of his own brand of shoes.

The roads were no doubt already clogged due to the preponderance of holiday shoppers working with just two days left before Christmas, but after Durant announced to his 1.1 million Twitter followers that he would be giving away free pairs, the roads jammed with fans hoping to nab a pair of his copper Nikes that he'll showcase on Sunday's season opener against the Orlando Magic.

One of the Tweets looked like this:

And I still don't get it. But Merry Christmas, everyone.
