While they aren’t exactly everyday occurrences, mid-game wardrobe changes are far from a new thing for sports fans. But because they happen so infrequently, it’s always wonder why the alteration was made. An act of frustration? Bad mojo? A food stain?

In Monday’s win over the Miami Heat, Kevin Durant caught everyone’s attention with his halftime shoe change. Brooklyn’s forward explained what went into the move on a Zoom call with reporters following the 98-85 finish.

“I stubbed my toe in the first half and I was thinking that it’d help if I switch shoes in the second half,” Durant said. “That’s just my theory. I don’t know if it works or not — I felt better in the second half shooting the basketball.”

After going 2-for-11 from the floor and 0-for-5 from deep in the first half on Monday, Durant went 4-for-10 overall and drained 3 of is 7 3-point attempts in the second half.

Suffice it to say, Durant shouldn’t wear the shoes he wore for Monday’s tipoff again.
