Ranking NBA's Best Small Forwards So Far in 2017-18

#2 Kevin Durant

Durant would potentially rank first on this list if he wasn’t playing alongside three other superstars (well, Draymond Green may not be a superstar but he’s immensely valuable for the Warriors). That’s not meant to provoke the tireless debate of whether KD should have avoided signing with a super team a year-and-a-half ago. But obviously, everything comes easier when you have so much talent on your side. Credit to Durant, though, as he has made remarkable improvement on the defensive end. In fact, some think he’s the favorite to claim Defensive Player of the Year honors.
