Default With Durant's skillset I wouldn't be suprised...

If he one day became the all time leading scorer.

He's got the jumpshot down to the T and it's only gonna get better as time wheres on. Not only is the shot gonna get better, his body will still fill out. He uses very little motion and can get his shot off at any particular point. He's so deadly from the outside that he really has no reason to take it in.

This genarally leads to a prolonged career, injury free, leading to a healthier body down the stretch. Great perimeter scorers usually turn into jumpshooters later in their careers. Durant is a great scorer who's already a jumpshooter. I don't see a scoring title taken away from him in at least 5-7 years

Not unless he's able to keep it up until he's 45. In other words, not gonna happen.

His style is late-jordan where he works for jumpers and doesnt take it to the rack so hard that he may be injured. I think if he can fill out before any injury he can have a long career and def be the scoring champ

It's not going to happen. Basically if he averaged his NBA career scoring average of about 26 ppg and plays ever game and never gets injured, it would take him about 15 more seasons to get there. It means he would have to remain an elite scorer 1400 games into a NBA career.

This is Kobe's 15th season and he would need another 5.5 years of stellar production to match it.
