“I’m still the best player in the world,” said Durant when asked about how his spot on Oklahoma City Thunder stacks up this season.
If you recall, LeBron James uttered those same words during the NBA Finals last year. Now, it appears KD has some extra bounce in his step and an unwavering confidence that is something to admire, especially after his team collapsed in route to a playoff berth.
