Is there still a debate of who is the MVP of the 2013-2014 NBA season?

After unquestionably one of the best seasons ever by a professional basketball player, Kevin Durant made his mark in NBA history.

Durant has placed himself into the ranks of Michael Jordan when it comes to scoring 25 or more points a game, but against the Phoenix Suns on Sunday night, Durant surpassed Michael Jordan in recorded Durant’s 41st consecutive game of 25 or more points.

As many NBA critics question Durant’s ability to lead the Oklahoma Thunder to an NBA championship, no one can question that Durant will possibly go down as the greatest scoring threats in NBA history.

Durant only trails Hall of Famers, Oscar Robertson and Wilt Chamberlain for the most consecutive games of 25 or more points in a single season.

What makes Durant so impressive?

Durant has a shot that makes a defender virtually impossible to defend his jump shot. Durant also is a good rebounder. Durant should also be given credit for his defense. Durant has a good wingspan, and he is always able to get in the lane to disrupt the passing lane. Durant still has a long way to go to be considered a complete player on the defensive side of the ball, unlike Michael Jordan.

Durant is showing the NBA and the world that there is a new king in town, and that king is not King James.

In order to be placed in the same ranks as Michael Jordan, Durant needs to start winning championships, and that needs to begin now.

Move over King James, there’s a new kid on the block, and that kid’s name is Kevin Durant, the 2013-2014 NBA MVP.
