Forget GOAT.

Durant is a one trick pony.

He dont even have a potential to surpass LBJ & lock in #10 spot on GOAT list.

He'll be a scoring champ 5-6 x in his career. thats about it.

No. He could have the best career but that doesn't make someone the best player. Careers can't be completely controlled by the player, given the right circumstances he could achieve a lot before he retires.

Default Re: Does Durant Have the Potential to Become the GOAT?

actually durant is as good as 96 MJ that won 72 games. Just look at their stats and advanced stats. They are almost the same 124 off rtg and .3 win shares. Mj only averaged 4.3 apg same with durant coz they both doesnt give a **** about stats and just play the best team ball of their careers. If only durant had pippen and a defensive anchor like rodman instead of dumbass westbrook and perkins, he couldve started winning last year. Give durant dirks supporting casts of kidd and chandler and im sure he wins. Theres a reason why at the same age, durant had more success than lebron coz hes the more impactful player despite the stats. Its the same reason why jordan was a loser in his early years despite the stats same with oscar robertson. Durant just hasnt a complete team yet. Too bad they traded harden, I think harden can settle as a 2nd option and play like penny next to durant.

So Durant could win 6 straight rings & 6 straight MVPS and you'd still claim that he doesn't impact the game like an all time great

great logic.

I would respect him more if he stops swinging around his stupid hands for foul.

Can the GOAT be such a one-dimensional player?
