Expect Kevin Durant to keep scratching the surface of history, to break shooting records, to once again challenge for the scoring title, the MVP title, and once again be an All Star and an All NBA calibre star. He’ll be more mature than ever mentally and a step better than he was last year physically. He’ll play the best basketball that he has ever played. No basketball player in the entire world will be better than him - except one.
But LeBron’s lead at the head of the pack is far from secured: one missed step, or a half a second of hesitation, and a younger and hungrier Durant will race ahead in an instant.
