With Kevin Durant choosing not to wear the Nike KD 11 during Golden State's championship run, WNBA star Breanna Stewart handled its on-court debut against Connecticut.

The answer to a future trivia question, it was Seattle Storm forward Breanna Stewart, not Kevin Durant, who debuted the Nike KD 11 on-court.

In last night's game against the Connecticut Sun, Stewart laced up a yellow-based "Storm" PE, featuring green logo hits and a speckled sole. Ironically, Durant began his NBA career in Seattle, before the Sonics relocated to Oklahoma City in 2008.

It's been an odd rollout for the KD 11, which was unceremoniously unveiled in May and not worn by Durant during the postseason. Earlier this week, Nike officially announced release dates for two colorways, beginning with "Still KD" on June 18.
