Golden State Warriors superstar forward Kevin Durant was issued this blue Warriors Christmas Day jersey during the 2016-17 NBA season, his first year with the Dubs. Durant, a four-time scoring champion, instantly meshed with Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and the rest of the Golden State stars, averaging 25.1 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 4.8 assists per game for the 67-15 Warriors. Golden State, coming off a humbling defeat to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2016 NBA Finals, were nearly perfect in the playoffs, with their only postseason loss coming to the Cavs in Game 4 of the Warriors four games to one Finals victory. Durant averaged over 35 points per game in the Finals, earning the first of his two consecutive Finals MVP trophies.

On Christmas Day 2016, the Warriors faced the Cleveland Cavaliers at Quicken Loans Arena in a rematch of the 2016 Finals. LeBron James and company emerged as the 109-108 victors despite Durant’s herculean 36-point, 15 rebound effort. This blue Christmas Day uniform has “WARRIORS” and Durant’s number “35” sewn on the chest in yellow chenille stitching over yellow tackle twill. A second “35” is sewn on the back of the jersey in the same fashion. “DURANT” is sewn across the back shoulders in yellow tackle twill. A NBA logo resembling a wax seal is applied to the back of the jersey above Durant’s name, while a four-time NBA champions tag is sewn on the back outside collar. A memorial band for former Warriors center Nate Thurmond is sewn on the left shoulder. A NBA Authentics tag and an Adidas size “XL” tag are sewn on the front left tail. A “LENGTH +2”” flag is attached to the Adidas tag. Durant has signed the “5” digit on the back of the jersey in black marker. This jersey comes with a COA from Beckett Authentication Services (F06025) for Durant’s signature and a LOA from noted game used jersey expert Dave Miedema.
