Thunder forward Kevin Durant is often compared to former San Antonio player George Gervin.
But what does Gervin think about all that?
Well, the former guardforward for the Spurs in the 1970s and 80s said Durant will be, "Much better than me," on ESPNs First Take.
Gervin was a nine-time All-Star and averaged 25.1 points for his career, including getting 32.3 for the 1981-82 season. He led the league in scoring four times. Durant has led the league in scoring three times and is averaging 26.6 points per game in his six years
"He can flat out play the game and he loves the game, so that's why I say his potential is scary," Gervin said. "He's very accurate."

Chalk up NBA star Kevin Durant to the list of high-profile stars to have their account hacked into. Early Wednesday morning, Durant tweeted that his Instagram account was hacked. This odd hacker had a message for Durant as well. In a separate tweet, Durant posted the picture that had a message attached to it telling Durant to contact him for his new password. I’m sure that’s...
If you are hoping to see Kevin Durant finally say something stupid, this isn’t the case. I say that because anytime an athlete or celebrity does or says something stupid on Twitter or Instagram, their go to excuse was “I was hacked.” It’s the new, “I was drunk” excuse. But it appears as if Durant really was hacked on Instagram, but it does not appear as if anything terrible...
Just because you are one of the main faces of the NBA, doesn't mean you are immune from social media hacking.

In this day and age of famous people using Twitter/Instagram to have their accounts hacked by hackers trying to make a name for themselves.
The latest famous star to be hacked was Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant but at least his hacker at the common decency to leave a message on his account.
Below is KD’s disgusted tweet about the whole thing and the message posted by...
With athletes sharing more of their lives thru Social Media than ever, hacking has become a huge problem. Kevin Durant,who knows how to play the social media game as well as he plays ball, is all too familiar with cyber threats. Check out KD getting his password hacked, and then the guy taunted him on his own Instagram account. Unbelievable how people choose to spend their time....
The Thunder front court does not possess a true dynamic duo guarding the paint. However, Serge Ibaka does his best to make up for a Thunder team without two monsters in the post. Arguably the best defender in the league, and a blossoming star in Oklahoma City, Serge is making it difficult for teams across [...]
The trade of James Harden prior to the 2012-2013 season came as a shock to most. The Thunder’s third best player and beloved beard would land in Houston, and Kevin Martin would have to try his hardest to fill the void that Harden left. Uncertainty would reach an unexpectedly high point for the runner [...]
60 wins is big for any team. Especially for a team that was barely pushing 20 when they first came to town. However, even with a franchise record single-season win total, Scott Brooks does not boast the same affection he earned from Thunder fans a few years ago when he took home the NBA Coach [...]
