His extraordinary coordination allows him to fool his defender with a hesitation dribble. His lightning quickness gives him the burst that sets him free. His stunning athleticism facilitates takeoff from the edge of the painted area, and his seven-foot, five-inch wingspan enables him to finish over the top of the help. Simply put, Kevin Durant is the ideal prototype of a scorer; an offensive player so multifarious that his extensive set of attributes makes Monta jealous. While it’s impossible to capture the complete range of such a skill set in one single play, Durant’s signature driving dunks are a solid representation.
Durant, with this very same maneuver, has already destroyed countless victims. They’re some of the biggest men in the NBA — Brendan Haywood, Roy Hibbert, and Marcin Gortat, to name a few — but the unstoppable forward fears none. And why should he? Already on his way to a fourth scoring title, the 24-year-old superstar out of the DMV is more accomplished than most, yet he’s just getting started.
