Although his Oklahoma City Thunder teammates believe he still hasn’t scratched the surface, Kevin Durant is intent on balling out of control and his career-best efficiency has played a massive role in his development.
This is nothing new for Durant, the reigning NBA scoring champion two years running, but it seems as though this year he’s taken his game to another level. Anyone who has watched Durant play for this Thunder team this season knows that the fifth year NBA player has seen his efficiency level on the court go through the roof.
“He is definitely improved and his efficiency is really at a level that I don’t know if you can get much better shooting the ball,” Thunder head coach Scott Brooks said. “He still has to work on his play-making and it’s something that he challenges himself [with]. Turnovers are a little high, trying to get that down lower but he’s definitely playing MVP basketball. I don’t know if he’s like the clear cut [MVP], that’s not something I think about often but he’s definitely going to be in the conversations for a lot of years and there’s a lot of good players in the league, a lot of players having great years.”
