While LeBron James gets all the credit for being the best player in the game, Kevin Durant is making his case as the next best thing. The Oklahoma City Thunder star is one of the best scorers in the NBA and constantly makes the buckets he gets look way too easy.

LeBron makes a habit out of making the game of basketball look effortless to him, but Durant is doing virtually the same thing over in the midwest. His drive to the bucket against the Atlanta Hawks was proof of this.

When you’re playing in a live game, and you’re making baskets that look like you’re still in warmups, that’s serious skill that isn’t easily copied.
