It is blatantly obvious now that Kevin Durant is the most well-rounded, most talented scorer in the game. This season, he has averaged 28 points per game on 50 percent shooting from the field and 39 percent shooting from three-point range. That first percentage is a career-high.
Granted, Durant did struggle in Game 1 against Dallas on Saturday, shooting 10-for-27. However, he hit the shot that counts. While it was lucky, like many said, the fact that Durant can even get that shot off shows how talented he is.
A 20-footer over two defenders, both of which are 6'7" or taller? That's impressive to even put the touch on it that Durant did. His length and frame allow him to make shots both at the basket and from the outside that most guys can't even get off.
He's the best scorer in the league and the biggest reason why no Eastern Conference team can handle the Oklahoma City Thunder in an NBA Finals matchup.
