Besides there's not as many bulky giants in the league anymore. I never thought Camby was gonna be able to play center but he has and done a fairly good job. If he can play Center Durant is just fine at Small forward!
You bring up a good point. Jamal Crawford, Tyson Chandler, Allen Iverson, Marcus Camby, Luke Ridnour, Andrei Kirilenko, and Rashard Lewis are examples of the successful rail-thin NBA players. Durant shouldn't have a problem at all. Plus Ivesron plays SG, Camby plays C (they play bigger positions than their weight). Durant is only going to be a SF. Shouldn't be a big deal.
