Kevin Durant’s New ‘Welcome to Brooklyn’ Bobblehead Looks Nothing Like Him

Written by: Aaron Halford

Since All-Star forward Kevin Durant decided to leave the Golden State Warriors this offseason to join the Brooklyn Nets, much has been made about his arrival by fans, retailers and media members alike.

Last Monday, Durant announced via Instagram that after 12 years in the league he would be changing his jersey number from 35 to 7.

Did Joe Johnson leave the BIG3 league to re-sign with the Nets?

From the bobblehead's depiction of Durant's facial structure to his muscle density, he looks nearly unidentifiable. Nets fans may want to wait a week or two while retailers work out the kinks before purchasing any new Durant memorabilia.

While Durant originally chose 35 to honor his late basketball coach who was shot and killed at age 35, his reasons for choosing the No. 7 remain ambiguous. It could signify Durant's desire to open a new chapter of his life in Brooklyn with a clean slate.TRENDING.
