Kevin Durant Joins Exclusive Club, Notches 25,000 Career Points

In a game against the Boston Celtics on Sunday, Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant made history. After scoring his 33rd point of the game, he became the 23rd player in history to notch 25,000 career points. Although the Nets lost, Durant was spectacular as he finished with 37 points, eight assists and six boards. 

After the game, Durant was asked about his thoughts on joining the exclusive group that has scored 25,000 career points. 

“I should be at 30 right now to be honest,” Durant replied

Durant is the third active player to reach this milestone, joining LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony as the only current players in the league.

A 12-time all-star, Durant is one of the best scorers this league has ever seen. He’s got the height of a center, but also has the ball handling, facilitating and shooting ability of a guard. As such, he’s nearly impossible to defend. 

On his career, Durant is averaging 27.1 points per game while shooting 49.5% from the floor.
