In case you haven’t noticed, Kevin Durant is ridiculously good. His offense has always been there, but the rest of his game is what is beginning to really impress people. We just showed you his chase down block on James Anderson of the Spurs, so of course, he decided to follow it up with another impressive defensive display.
If you still have some doubts about Durant’s ability, just ask Josh Smith about it. I’m sure he can tell you, although he might not want to talk about it. You can watch the clip below:
Although he isn’t the most physical player around, Durant’s crazy height and length gives him the ability to be a presence defensively with his shot blocking. He’s only listed at 6’9″, but it’s hard to believe he’s not an inch or two taller than that while watching him stand next to some of his taller teammates.
