If he ages drastically, and forgets how to play defense. Then, yes. Otherwise, nope.

Even if LBJ ages, his post up game SHOULD be very efficient by that point. I don't see him declining for a while.

Davis has a chance, but still won't be considered the best, unless he leads his team to 50 + win seasons at least twice.

24? Wiggins will just be turning 20 in 3 years.

I see Rose coming back strong and going up against KD and LeBron for best player in the league in the next few years.

Default Re: within 3 years time can durant overtake lebron as the best player?

Can Durant average 30 pt triple doublesque numbers while being a 1st all-defensive/dpoy type of defender that can play & guard up to 5 positions... while supposedly winning MVP/FMVP/Championship aswell?

There is your answer.. :)

Sure if he can improve every part of his game other than shooting, and rebounding, and LeBron declines in his prime.
