You can understand where the anger is coming from because Durant’s latest demand to leave the Nets has been controversial at best and selfish and short-sighted at worst.
However, one should never confuse Durant’s prickly personality with a lack of skills.
Even though he might rub some people the wrong way, Durant is still a bonafide superstar who leads every team he joins.
That is not hyperbole: Durant really has become the points-per-game leader for each squad he’s played on.

He averaged 27.4 with the Oklahoma City Thunder, 25.8 with the Golden State Warriors, and 28.7 with his current Brooklyn Nets.
Durant becomes an unstoppable force no matter the team he plays for and is proving that he’s definitely one of the greatest scorers in NBA history.
Durant Doing It
If you have been following the drama around Durant lately you have surely seen that the Nets are demanding a lot in exchange for him.
When you look at his numbers and the way that he leads any team he signs on with, you can understand why that is.
Durant is an NBA superstar on a whole other level.
But that’s just what Durant does: he dominates.
Sure, he makes some people angry and even fans have a hard time trusting him but no one who watches the game can deny his skill.
