Durant, a three-time first-team All-NBA selection, five-time All-Star and now four-time NBA scoring champion, makes a concerted effort to fill the stat sheet in all aspects of the game. Defensive rebounding, handling the ball, playing tough defense on the wing and distributing the ball to open teammates are all areas in which Durant has improved this year. The focus and determination with which Durant plays on every possession, along with the example he sets in practice, in film sessions and even out in the community is a great example for younger Thunder players. By expanding his vocal leadership and adding onto his game as he does each year, Durant is finding more and more ways to impact winning for the Thunder. As one of the core members of the franchise, Durant’s love for Thunder basketball and influence on the team’s culture is something he displays with pride on a daily basis.
