(NEW YORK) — Pro Basketball Hall of Famer Rick Barry is amazed by the current stretch Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant is having.
“When he first played he didn’t do a lot of creating a lot of opportunities for his teammates,” Barry told ABC Sports Radio. “[But now] he’s getting the ball to people, he’s making great passes, and offensively he’s playing lights out right now.”
“There’s never been a player in the history of the game like Kevin Durant…someone his size who has the mobility and ball handling and shooting skills that he has, it’s pretty remarkable,” Barry, who is part of the NBA’s 50 Greatest Players of all-time, added.
The Hall of Famer noted that if Durant wants to be unstoppable, he’ll need to develop a better post game.
“He would create such a problem for people,” Barry said. “That would give him some amazing versatility. He could really create a super problem for other teams to guard him.”
Durant is averaging 33 points per game and 6.9 rebounds, with 6.4 assists in the last 10 games.
