How often does Kevin Durant lose his shoes during games?

FiveThirtyEight posted this a few weeks back and it's a bit of fun:

'All told, an extensive video analysis of Durant's games from the past three regular seasons and postseasons reveals that the four-time scoring champ has come out of his shoe at least 31 times since the beginning of the 2015-16 campaign. That number, compiled against 20 different NBA teams, equates to losing a sneaker roughly every eight games or so — a mind-bogglingly high figure considering that Durant has had his own signature Nike shoe, designed to fit the unique contours of his feet, dating back to 2008.

"His shoe comes off more than anyone I’ve ever seen," says teammate Draymond Green.

The question, of course, is why.'

A 10,000 word thesis on the matter, and then the conclusion being exactly what everyone would've thought from the beginning....

he chooses not to tie them very tight.

So are "his" shoes made too loose, meaning why would anyone buy them?

Or is it a PR thing so potential customers see his shoes more and want to buy them?

All about the $$$

Better question...

How does KD wake up in the morning knowing he single handedly ruined the NBA for everyone?
