@3--6 Kevin Durant can "do"

@3--6

Kevin Durant can "do" everything on the basketball court, but he still doesn't have a complete game in my opinion.

I know he got dunked on, but Valaciunas can really ball. I really think he has the talent and ability become a future repeating allstar.

He's not a complete player

He's not a complete player just yet.

He still can't control the tempo of a game and turns the ball over way too much. 5.3 TOPG through 3 games and 4 tonight, while not being the primary ball-handler.

I'd say he's got a complete game offensively considering he's a natural scorer. I'd like to see him play better D, his isn't bad by any means but there's so much potential with is coordination speed and those out of proportion arms haha this dunk made me forget who I was rooting for," lets go thunder! .. Ahem I mean go raps!"

McGee

If I was the coach for the Pistons, I would have benched and yelled at all my players, that just stood there for Mcgee to get that last dunk.

@Tongue-Out-Like-23 And I

@Tongue-Out-Like-23

And I still think he can develop a go-to low post game. IF he wants to really make his teammates better, he'd get in the post in draw double teams and then make the right passes. Not everything has to be creating off of the dribble, which he's averaged more turnovers than Russell Westbrook the last two seasons.

He can also continue to get better on defense.

He's improving in all areas, so it's only a matter of time. It's early, but it's looking like he could average 9-10 rebounds this season.

@IB Yeah, I agree with you.

@IB

Yeah, I agree with you. It's pretty ridiculous to say that the 3x league leading scorer could still be better offensively. This guy is going to be scary for the next 10-13 years.

And honestly, he doesn't even need a great post-game, as long as he's down there and gets a weak hook and a turn-around jumper, he'll be double teamed and he can kick it out for the easy J. Much like LeBron, not a great post game but good enough to be respected down-low.
