One of only a few members of the 40-50-90 club (three-point, field goal and free throw percentages), Durant has already accumulated so many accolades in his short professional career.

Durant’s lethal outside shooting makes his ability to take just about anyone off the dribble even more deadly. Standing close to seven feet, he can get his shots off over anyone, but we’ve never seen anyone with his body frame have the kind of ball handling skills he possesses.

Durant often complains about how he’s always been number two, drafted second behind Greg Oden in 2007, and now considered to be the second-best player in the league behind LeBron James. I hate to be the one to break it , but he’s only the second-best shooter in the NBA. He does, however, have the best nicknames in the NBA: Durantula, Baby Ice, Iceberg Slim and K-Smoove.
