In fact, there have been great players who are one of the most difficult to guard against. They are quick on their toes and can easily hit the basket on a consistent basis.
Former NBA Player Grant Hill, who played against Michael Jordan, has rated Kevin Durant as one of the best offensive players of all time. Jordan is also regarded as one of the best offensive players of all time as he had the skills to score at will and it was a difficult task to put the brakes on him if he got going.
In an exclusive chat with BasketballNews.com, he specifically named KD and said, “maybe the best offensive player of all time.”
Hill said: “What is encouraging is that we had the best offensive player, maybe of all time, wanting to be a part of it, along with a lot of our best young guys wanting to be a part of it.”
In fact, earlier Kobe Bryant had also admitted that Kevin Durant was one of the most difficult players to guard against.
Kevin Durant is definitely one of the most difficult players to guard as there is hardly any chink in his armour. Meanwhile, Durant scored 29 points against France in the Olympics final as the USA won by 87-82 to clinch their 16th Gold medal at the Games.
Kevin Durant is almost 7 ft tall and makes great use of his height to get the best out of himself. Durant can handle the ball like a guard and his shooting from the distance is impeccable.
