Again if he goes into the weight room he won't be the good shooter he is now. Heck he will be like Lebron really.

Lebron stan don't take it personally, but honestly he is not a good shooter and that is mainly because of how strong he is.

Amazing.


If he gets stronger he will be better than any other player not named Dhoward...

How is being strong an obstacle to becoming a good shooter?

Many players lift weights and have great jumpshots.



Ben Gordon comes to mind.


No one is saying "get jacked" but he could use some muscle.

I think if given time, maybe another year or perhaps two, Durant will be possibly the most explosive scorer the league has seen. Maybe more explosive than MJ.

What's scary about a player like Durant is that he will only get better as he ages. He doesn't need a post game right now, he just needs to keep doing what he's doing. Once he packs on more muscle, then he can develop his post game.

The reason for the turnovers dropping off is that Durant has stopped dribbling. He comes off screens and shoots the ball; the way he's playing now, he should be accumulating turnovers like Ray Allen (i.e. nearly none). According to Durant's March stats, he's doing just that (1.4 TO a game, just like Ray Allen).

However, if Durant can't be confident with his dribble; it'll certainly limit himself as a player. He'll just be a tall Ray Allen; not bad, but I know he can be better than that.
