Kevin Durant aims to keep improvingPosted by Inside Hoops
”There’s always another level you can go to. In basketball, you always can be better at something, I think,” Durant said Saturday after Oklahoma City’s practice.
”I haven’t seen a guy that totally dominates the game in every aspect. He can’t make every shot, he can’t get every rebound, he can’t get every assist, so I think you can get better. That’s the mindset I take.”
Durant has gotten his fair share in each of those categories, particularly this season. Durant became the seventh player in league history to win three straight scoring titles, averaging 28 points per game, and set career highs in shooting percentage, 3-point shooting, rebounding, assists and blocks.
And yet he’s still driven to want more.
”I wouldn’t say I’m satisfied,” Durant said. ”I’m happy that I progressed a little bit. I have a long ways to go and I think that if I continue to just keep getting better at the mental part of the game - watching film and knowing where the defense is going to play, knowing where my teammates are going to be - then I can get better.
”I’ve just got to keep improving.”
