Kevin Durant is currently on a mini tour for Nike out in Europe, which means he has to do a lot of interviews, which means you’ll probably some headlines with his name in them. He’s always been one of the coolest dudes in the L and makes for a great interview, on top of that he speaks his mind so it’s always nice to interview him.
While in Spain, Durant was asked about who his top five players of all-time. KD’s five includes Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O’Neal, Tim Duncan and Magic Johnson.
This will definitely raise a debate, but it’s very hard to argue with this top five. Via CBS Sports:
I would stay with Magic Johnson as a basis for their exceptional height, vision and be a triple-double machine. As guard Kobe Bryant is a legend and five-time champion. It’s been half-life in the NBA! Michael Jordan like three. Sorry for Larry Bird , but I have to let him out for Kobe. As a power forward is difficult, between Karl Malone, Tim Duncan … I stay with Tim Duncan . For longevity, the securities and the impact it has had and still has on the court. And Shaquille O’Neal as a dominant power forward.
