Kevin Durant undoubtedly is one of the greatest scorers to ever step on a basketball court. The seven-footer shooter now has moved to the 15th spot in NBA’s All-Time scorers list. Durant has been on an unreal scoring run this season. As he started the 2022-23 season not even being in the Top 20 spots of the All-Time Scoring List. And, now he has just passed Tim Duncan for the 15th spot.
Kevin Durant this season itself has already claimed six spots and isn’t going to stop any soon. He’s dominating the scoring end and shutting down all his haters and doubters. KD would have been in the Top-10 ranks by now if it wasn’t for the injuries. But nothing can be changed and fortunately, the seven-footer sharp-shooter is now healthy and balling out.
Kevin Durant started off by passing Alex English in October on the all-time scoring list. Then he took down his childhood idol Vince Carter which was really a special moment for him. He didn’t just stop there and climbing the ladder passed Kevin Garnett, John Havlicek, Paul Pierce and Tim Duncan.
With months remaining for the season to wrap up Kevin Durant will surely claim some more places on the All-Time Scoring List. Some of the legends he’ll be passing to move close to the Top-10 zone are: Dominique Wilkins, Oscar Robertson and Hakeem Olajuwon.
