Kevin Durant first put on a jersey at the University of Texas a few years ago. In that short time he was there he became one of the best players in the NCAA. It did not take him long to get many looks from the NBA scouts. He was soon drafted in the top few picks and made his way to Oklahoma City.
Many first doubted his strength and whether he could handle the pain and agony of playing 82 games a year. Some also said he was too weak to play inside. Well, they have been wrong about him so far as he is one of the league leaders in points and rebounds this year and has made his name known for being a great shooter too.
His defense is coming along nicely as well. He has very fast hands and quick feet to the ball for a guy of his size. His shot is very soft and he has great touch around the rim. His mid-range game is also super and he has been known to shoot the 3 point shot as well. Any doubts of Durant being a great NBA player should be erased by now.
He has a chance to lead Oklahoma City to the playoffs if they finish the year off strong. There are many good teams out west but they could pose a challenge if they play at the top of their game. It will be interesting to see how the end of the season turns out.
