    "He just showed he's the most talented basketball player on earth, if not of all time," Kerr said. "Honestly. He's just so gifted. I loved coaching him, and I'm looking forward to doing so again."

    The most gifted player of all time? That's a bold statement when considering, well... Michael Jordan.

    Kerr won two championships with Jordan as a teammate on the Chicago Bulls and won two more coaching Durant, so he just might have the best perspective of anyone when it comes to this debate.

    "I think he's more gifted, I really do," Kerr said. "That's saying something, but Kevin is a different...entirely different breed. He's 6-11 with guard skills, unlimited 3-point range, passing, shot-blocking -- his shot-blocking at the rim, it's just stunning. Watching him this year was really, really gratifying to see.

    Possibly. Kevin Durant won’t ever have the legacy that Michael Jordan enjoys. But he is supremely skilled and is an amazing player. I’m not a fan of the comparison but I do like seeing coaches praising players.

    “Of all the guys I’ve ever seen in this league, in 20-plus years, in terms of basketball ability he’s in the top 1 or 2 percent,” said Dallas Mavericks Coach Rick Carlisle, who was Bird’s top assistant in Indiana.

    ya I’d say that too if jordan punched me in my eye :mjlol:

    but seriously KD is a great player who stands on his own merit…as stated earlier, no need for the comparison-based question

    Yep. Only thing stopping KD is toughness and mentality. We’ll never see a 7 footer with his skill set ever again. Still ain’t the best ever tho. Don’t convolute the 2

    I mean, he's not wrong.

    Dude just came back from what could've been a career-ending injury and pretty much has been crowned best player in the league. Don't see how that doesn't show toughness.

    Do you not understand what gifted means?

    He's a 7 foot tall player that can do anything on the court. You can't teach that. We've never seen it before and might not ever see it again.
