Kevin Durant’s Rank All-Time

Kevin Durant is one of the greatest to ever play the game of basketball. Now, it gets tricky when trying to put an exact rank on Durant. He won two Finals Most Valuable Player awards as a member of the Golden State Warriors. The Warriors were coming off of back to back finals appearances when Durant joined the team. This makes it tough to know if the Warriors needed Durant.

The former Texas Longhorn may not have won a championship outside of Golden State but has always put up great numbers. For his career so far, he has averaged 27.3 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 4.3 assists. He is also very efficient, shooting 50% from the floor, and 38% from three for his career.

There are very few players in NBA history who can match the accolades of Durant. He is a four-time scoring champ, 2013-14 MVP, and 13-time all-star. Durant has also been selected to 10 All-NBA teams and the NBA’s 75th anniversary team.

So, where does Kevin Durant land on the all-time rankings?

Top 15 Players of All-Time

  1. Michael Jordan – Chicago Bulls, Washington Wizards
  2. LeBron James – Cleveland Cavaliers, Miami Heat, Los Angeles Lakers
  3. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar – Milwaukee Bucks, Los Angeles Lakers
  4. Magic Johnson – Los Angeles Lakers
  5. Tim Duncan – San Antonio Spurs
  6. Kobe Bryant – Los Angeles Lakers
  7. Hakeem Olajuwon – Houston Rockets, Toronto Raptors
  8. Larry Bird – Boston Celtics
  9. Shaquille O’Neal – Orlando Magic, Los Angeles Lakers, Miami Heat, Phoenix Suns, Cleveland Cavaliers, Boston Celtics
  10. Steph Curry – Golden State Warriors
  11. Wilt Chamberlain – Philadelphia/San Francisco Warriors, Philadelphia 76ers, Los Angeles Lakers
  12. Kevin Durant – Oklahoma City Thunder, Golden State Warriors, Brooklyn Nets, Phoenix Suns
  13. Bill Russell – Boston Celtics
  14. Dwyane Wade – Miami Heat, Chicago Bulls, Cleveland Cavaliers
  15. Kevin Garnett – Minnesota Timberwolves, Boston Celtics, Brooklyn Nets

Kevin Durant is right outside of the top ten. A championship with the Phoenix Suns this season may push him into the top ten. He will get that elusive ring outside of Golden State. He may get his third finals MVP. If that happens, he will join Michael Jordan, Lebron James, Magic Johnson, Shaquille O’Neal, and Tim Duncan as the only players with three or more Finals MVPs. It will be very hard to keep him out of the top ten at that point.

Do you agree with these rankings? Will a championship this season have a major impact on Durant’s legacy?
