Default Taking length into consideration, is Durant the most athletic wing in the league?

He's led all non-centers in dunks these past 2 years and has ranked #4 overall behind only

Amare(center in Phoenix)
Dwight Howard

Durant has 264 dunks these past 2 seasons
LeBron has 191 dunks
Wade has 203 dunks

The ammount of dunks means athleticism now?

you are so pathetric. Of course he has a lot of dunks since he is almost 7 foot tall. My grandpa could dunk if he was 7 feet

My grandpa could dunk if he was 7 foot

My grandpa, even though he is 87, could dunk if he was 7 foot

I bet most people don't even know that Greg Oden had a higher vertical in the combine than Kevin Durant did. Kevin Durant's vertical was 33 and a half, which is nothing special. Kevin Durant is athletic for sure, but he isn't an elite one.

You're not taking into consideration his height/length.

Durant doesn't have to jump 40" to dunk over people, and that's why he's so athletic. You have to take into consideration length

Length has nothing to do with being athletic.

Length is not part of athleticism.
Russell Westbrook is probably more athletic than Durant.
But not saying Durant is not athletic, he is. But I don't think his athleticism is on the level of T-Mac, Wade, maybe not even prime Kobe.
