Sure, he is better then the players mentioned above. However, Marvin Williams and Rudy Gay are much more athletic then Durant, and Milicic is a much better defender. The only difference between the players I mentioned, and Kevin Durant is that he has a more accurate jump shot. However, my opinion is that big men belong in the post, not on the perimeter. There is a reason we have guards. I don't believe that NBA teams will allow him to roam as much out there as he is doing so in college, thus reducing his game.

Unless a coach gives this kid ultimate reign over the team, he isn't going to be a superstar of any sort. I expect him to be a Rashard Lewis, not a Kevin Garnett.

Durant is what Rudy Gay was supposed o be. Rudy Gay's entire career has been based on waiting and potential. He's good but Durant is what everyone expected out of him in college. Durant is now. Oden is future tense. O top of that ppl talk about Durant like his game is at a peak or somthing.Like a guy 6'10" with a huge wingspan and a ridiculous jumper has no potential.I'de take durant.

So who do you guys see as being a realistic draft pick for the knicks? Who would be a good fit with what we need...SG and PF?

Durant is still a beast, 20 points more or not.
