At this point, it is a matter of ppersonality, evidence of speed and the way he gains the attention and respect of his peers, and his strengths in a limited level of control, and increasingly, taking the course of a given game. It takes a combination of focus and unconventional skill to work comfortable at the intersection of high usage and high efficiency, and is a challenge that many players have never mastered.

Just how good Durant is in 18 months after suffering from Achilles rupture during his last game with the Warriors is one of this season’s questions asked. Players coming out of the same injury were not performing much better than they had been on their return, and KD was already likely to drop a decline in his early 30s. At the same time, when we last saw Durant completely healthy in the first two rounds of the 2019 playoffs, he was making a case as a major force in the league, and the reports from his teammates during the recovery period were encouraging.
