Several players showed their full potential in this year’s playoffs but none was more spectacular than Kevin Durant. Durant is the best player on a team stacked with all-stars and it even seems in some moments his game elevated to another level, a level we haven’t yet seen from him.
In 8 games so far in this playoffs, Durant has been averaging almost 35 points per game, while also adding 5 assists and 5 rebounds. His shooting percentage has been insanely effective and at the moment he is shooting almost 53 percent from the field. But despite all these stats, if you look at games you can definitely see Durant has the capability to take over a game in an instant if he thinks that is necessary for his team to win a game.
While hosting on a show Undisputed, his former teammate Kendrick Perkins had a lot of good things to say about Durant and his ability to create offense instantly. Perkins believes he is the best offensive player in NBA history because of his ability to do so many things offensively while at the same time being a 7 feet tall.
“Right now Kevin Durant is the best player in the world. If Kevin Durant got his own team he would go on another level. He is already the best offensive player we’ve ever seen in NBA history. There is nothing he can’t do. He is 7 feet tall with handles, mid-range and will dunk on you, hesitation move. The next thing for him to do is get his own team and score 40 points per game.”
