Nets’ Kevin Durant Names His ‘Mount Rushmore’ for Small Forwards

Nets star Kevin Durant is off to a torrid start to the 2022-23 NBA season.

The 12-time all-star is averaging 30.8 points per game on nearly 52% shooting from the floor despite only shooting a shade over 32% from three through 12 games this season. Durant spoke to Chris Henderson on Friday afternoon and shared his thoughts about the NBA’s Mount Rushmore.

“LeBron and Kawhi, Larry Bird,” Durant stated after Henderson stated that he needed to choose three other men to join the small forward Mount Rushmore.

There’s no doubt that Durant is one of the greatest small forwards ever to play the game. He has won four career scoring titles, which included three straight from 2009-12. James has established his status as one the greatest players of all-time, while Bird enjoyed a legendary career that was all-around. It is notable that Durant named Leonard, a player who has suffered from injuries throughout his career but has been a consistent two-way player in the league when he’s on court. Durant may be back in the conversation as the league’s top scoring player if he continues to play strong offensively.
