Kevin Durant can score at will from anywhere on the court, but his midrange jumper is what vaulted him from being an elite scorer to an all-time-great offensive threat. In this episode of Signature Shots, ESPN analyst Kirk Goldsberry explains why Durant's midrange game makes him impossible to defend. #NBA #Sports

in a League with no touch defense its no mystery offense will dominate. Put MJ on Defense on any of those new shool Clowns. MJ was tackled,pulled, hands on his forehead at each Jumpshot, still the best scorer in history, KD comes very close but keep in mind no one is defending KD for real.

We all talk about kyrie, AI, etc. crossovers but that KD double crossover imo is one of the deadliest of all time 🔥

Its not unique .... Khawi does the same thing. What makes durant unique is the fact that he is almost 7ft and he handles the ball like a sg / pg. Only thing his game lacks is a post up type beat you down low addition.

Put it simply, if you are tall enough to contest his shot, you are too slow to react to his footwork; if you are quick enough to react, you are too short to contest. This guy is a walking cheat code.

I think KD is one of the very few players his size who could still play in the league if he were 5 inches shorter. So unfair to have that combination of skill and length.

This is why I keep trying to tell people the Nets are so dangerous. In the playoffs teams try and take away the paint and 3 point line and force mid range shots. The Nets have the best mid ranger scorer in the league in KD and one of the other best in Kyrie. They will never be starving for a basket. The most important thing in the playoffs are reliable clutch players that can get you baskets when things get tight. The Nets have 3, it's gonna be scary if their all healthy.

Jordan #1 midrange shooter ever for the fact his shooting % and ppg are higher than anybody in these comments, Jordans career fg% is .497 and 30.1 ppg and Jordan shot .505 career fg% with the bulls it went down a lil bit cause of the wizards years and the fact Jordan shot more than Kd and Dirk and still has a better fg% means Jordan is the best Mid Range shooter in the history of basketball.
