Sports Unbiased Staff G.F.R. Analysis
Ben Buchanan – Durant recently proclaimed himself the best basketball player on the planet. While this may be a bit of a stretch it’s not crazy Durant can certainly light it up with the best of the best. Durant was missed last season, he only played in 27 games but he still managed to score 27 ppg during the time he was active. If you want to see what Durant is capable of though look no further than his magical 2013-2014 MVP campaign.
During the 2013-14 season he averaged a stunning 32 ppg 5.5 apg and 7.5 rpg and also shoots a career 38.5 percent from the three point line. Durant can score with the best of them and is certainly one of the NBA’s most notable superstars.
Jr. Williams – His jumpshot is as pure as virgin blood, and the only player more lethal at scoring than Carmelo Anthony is none other than Kevin Durant, as an added bonus you can bank on him being in the MVP race every single season he’s healthy. The 2013-14 NBA MVP joins only LeBron James in the list of SFs to win the coveted league award, unfortunately, injuries to either him or Russell Westbrook over the past two seasons have hindered any serious chances at them reaching an NBA finals series. Durant is another humble player who’s respected by his teammates, however, he’s set to be a free agent in 2016-2017, so this year’s success is crucial to his future in a Thunder uniform.
Sauping R. Arguello – Durant is coming back from a season ending foot injury and will be hungrier than ever to get back to MVP form. Hopefully it is not a similar injury as to the one that limited Grant Hill for several seasons.
