    Can Kevin Durant Surpass Larry Bird?

    Do you think Durant can eventually surpass Larry Bird to become 2nd best SF of all time? (1st being Lebron)

    yes. These types of questions are easy to answer. Yes he can. But greatness takes sustained excellence.

    He has the talent. But I think he'll end up being 3rd on the list.

    Basically you are saying you think Durant can be top 6-8 all time.

    The guy is going to be a top 3 player in the league for at least a decade. The guy has potential to win numerous MVP's and he's bound to win a couple of titles.

    Bird and Lebron will be in the top 2. 3rd is attainable with individual and team success. I mean the 3rd best SF is Erving. So it's not like Durant doesn't have a chance.

    Let us not assume tht LBJ is number one. I think that is up to debate. It really depends on what level of excellence James maintains over the next few season and what kind of success he brings to the people around him.

    That said, I will address the question at hand.

    Can he? Yes, he could. That doesn't mean he will. Even if he plays at his current level for another ten season I would be hesitant to say yes. That would mean he maintianed his high level of play longer than Bird, but Bird was, aside from being a great scorer, and certainly a better shooter than Durant, was also a much better rebounder and play maker. Durant would have to improve his game to be in that conversation.

    That said he is rebounding the ball very well this season, and judging from the box-scores i would say it seems like he is putting out the effort to be a play maker as well. I hope this works out and he develops that skill.

    So yes... he could, but I haven't seen the kind of all-around game from Durant that would leave me to believe it WILL happen. But he is making the efforts to improve his game. We'll see where it goes over the next couple of season. Who knows, Durant may pass LBJ as well.
    What the eye doesn't see and the mind doesn't know, doesn't exist.
