Durant is one of the most prolific scorers in his generation. After entering the league as the second overall pick in 2007, the 33-year-old forward has put together a long list of accolades.

Durant is an 11-time All-Star and four-time scoring champion. He was named NBA MVP in 2014, and he won back-to-back NBA championships with the Golden State Warriors in 2017 and 2018, earning Finals MVP honors in both years.

Durant has averaged 20 or more points in each of his 14 NBA seasons. He is also one of nine players in the league's exclusive 50-40-90 club, achieving the feat in 2013.

Entering Wednesday's matchup against the Celtics, the Nets had a 13-5 record and had won six of their previous seven games. Durant leads the team with 28.5 points and 7.8 rebounds per game, and Brooklyn looks like the top contender in the Eastern Conference it was predicted to be this season.

Next up on the all-time scoring list is Ray Allen, who is 24th with 24,505 career points. Durant will likely move ahead of him within the next few games.
