No matter what is your opinion of Kevin Durant, nobody could argue that he is one of the most talented offensive players in NBA history. KD faced a lot of criticism since he joined the Warriors and even though he showed he can adapt to a different system than the one he had with the Thunder and actually win championships, people are still hating on Durant.

Durant displayed his entire offensive arsenal in game 3 against the Clippers where he pretty much single-handedly dominated the game on both ends of the floor providing big plays for the Warriors.

In an interview after the game, he said he doesn't need to prove anything anymore after 12 years in the NBA and how he is satisfied where he is at the moment.

"I am in the league for 12 years now, I am 30 and I don't need to show anybody anything at this point."

He also reflected on the notion that is popular these days that he should use his skills to beat players in 1-on-1 action more. Durant thinks the doesn't need to force offense and how it's important to have a good flow within the game which gives results by itself.

"I think a lot of people who watch the game and analyze the game and thought I should be engaged in 1-on-1 in physical battle whatever that is with other people like Patrick Beverly. I don't need that type of stuff, I just play. That is what I was trying to let people know. "

So far through the first three games against the Clippers, Durant is averaging 27 points and 7 assists per game on a very solid shooting percentage. Durant is in full playoff mode and showing the world that he is still one of the most dominant players in the league.
