Andre Iguodala has seen the greatness of Kevin Durant as both an opponent and a teammate. For the last two seasons, the two have been teammates on the Warriors, resulting in back-to-back NBA championships.
When Durant was a Warriors rival with the Thunder, Iguodala was tasked with taking on the star. He sure is happy to have Durant on his side now.
Iguodala joined Ben Golliver of Sports Illustrated for an extended interview and touched on an array of topics discussing the Warriors. When asked, "What's something that people don't know about Kevin Durant?" Iguodala heaped the highest level of praise on his teammate.
"People don't appreciate him enough. He's the most talented scorer of all-time. Hands down," Iguodala said. "He's a walking 30 points. He'll get 30 on 12 shots. That's very, very hard to do. Very efficient. Most guys need to feel the ball in their hands a lot to get a rhythm. He doesn't."
What makes Durant the greatest scorer of all time? Iguodala turned to the fact that Durant has the skills of a guard with someone who is seven feet tall, making him nearly unguardable. He, of all people, would know.
"Michael Jordan and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar were the two guys with unstoppable moves. MJ had the fadeaway and Kareem had the skyhook, but KD is a 7-footer who can hit a hesi pull-up from 50 feet out. That's his unstoppable move," Iguodala said.
In two seasons with Golden State, Durant has averaged 25.7 points per game while making 52.5 percent of his shots and 40 percent of his 3-pointers.
Through 11 seasons, Durant has totaled 20,913 career points. He is currently No. 36 on the NBA's all-time points list.
