We already knew what he could do with his offense. But what is impressive is his willingness to pass to the open man. And he will take the shot too when we need to be bailed out. But what's even most impressive has been his rebounding and shot blocking. He had 17 rebounds against the Pelicans. I could see Durant averaging something like 27 points, 11 rebounds, 6 assists and 1 to 2 blocks per game.
So if there is one good thing to take away from the start of the season, it's that Durant is fitting in seamlessly. Now we just have to try to get Looney, MacaDoo, Pachulia, West, and eventually Damian Jones playing at a high level.

Durant is showing what a great player he is and it is his allround play that is most pleasing. He really could become an alltime great, moreso than he already is, after just a few years in the Warriors and playing like he is. He is able to improve in other areas of his game because of the very good players and unselfishness around him. The team needs him to rebound well also and really, if he is able to average some ten rebounds a game, with Pachulia rebounding as good as Bogut did and Green getting at least 8-9 a game, the team could actually be among the best in that.
