Durant is incredible. A Jordanesque scorer and very long. He is the best scorer in the league and should take the torch after Kobe relinquishes it. Just a great outside shooter too. He was Larry Bird-like against Turkey. A pure shooter and a pure scorer. Like a Bird-Jordan hybrid. Yeah, he was the reason they won. Otherwise Team USA would have lost. If I were constructing the 2012 team I would go with Derron Williams, Derrick Rose, and Chris Paul at point. If CP3 wouldn't go then I would go with Westbrook. Then at shooting guard I would go with JJ Reddick and Tyreke Evans. At small forward go with Lebron James, Kevin Durant, and either Rudy Gay or Andre Iguodala. Then at power forward, Chris Bosh, David Lee, and Lamar Odom. If Bosh opted out then I would go with Kevin Love. Dwight Howard would play center.
