  • Greatest NBA Players of All Time

    Kevin Durant

    He won 1 NBA title, 1MVP. The Big Ticket is probably the most intense, passionate big the game has ever seen. Defensively, he is able to control a game through the influence of his teammates. A fiery leader/competitor. Kevin Durant may not be the all around player that LeBron is, but the three time scoring champion will be dominating the league as the best player in five years. Durant will be 29 and in his prime entering the season, and he has a lot of time to work on his game. Durant may never be quite as good on defense as LeBron or Howard are, but he will be simply phenomenal on offense.
