You might have been wondering last night why Pittsburgh head coach Jamie Dixon was wearing a gray pair of Kevin Durant's signature Nike shoes while Mark Turgeon wore a pair of white Under Armours that matched his players.

It's not some attempt by two guys past their playing primes to recapture and old spark. It was part of a nationwide Coaches vs. Cancer campaign to bring awareness to fundraising for cancer research.

In theory, it worked. Why is this piece being written? Because it was out of the norm, achieving its intended goal.
