Kevin Durant keeps proving that he is one of the best players in the league. The Brooklyn Nets small forward leads the offensive stats and is the reference of his team. This is a warning to the rest of the East teams because KD has everything to take the Nets to the ring and be a firm candidate to the MVP.
Nobody scores more than him:
Kevin Durant averages 29.5 points per game, a higher number than any of the other stars like Antetokounmpo or Stephen Curry. Furthermore, he posts 8.5 rebounds and 5 assists per game. These are very outstanding stats taking into account the rest of the stars high performing as well.
The lethal weapon of Kevin Durant is his mid-distance shot. This is an area where he has really improved. He records a 63,5% of accuracy this season. This is one of the kind of shots that tends to be missed the most and this makes KD to be a step above the rest of the players.
The leader of a well-looking Nets:
Before the start of the new season there was this conflict of Kyrie Irving and his denial to get vaccinated, which is why the franchise decided to put him out of the team until he would be able to play again. Basically, he couldn’t play until he got vaccinated. With Irving’s absence the Nets’ hopes could be faded away, but Brooklyn are a super team and can’t just rely on a single player.
It has not been the best possible beginning for the Nets, as they faced an irregular streak in their first games. They fell to Milwaukee, Charlotte and Miami. However, it seems like they are getting back on track thanks to Kevin Durant’s outstanding performances. KD is now taking care of the team as James Harden is still getting to his optimum level.
Brooklyn Nets are 3rd in their conference with 8 wins and 4 defeats. They are only behind the Washington Wizards and the Chicago Bulls. It is still too early to speak, but the Nets will more than likely climb up some positions and Kevin Durant will be a firm candidate to the MVP.
