Scouting Report on Kevin Durantby Jerry Meyer - 05/02/2005
Durant has the lethal combination of length and a pure stroke with NBA range. Can also put the ball on the floor and score when the defender rushes his shot fake. Not an explosive athlete, Durant has a tendancy to be too passive as a defender and rebounder.
