Few have gotten their NBA buckets as effortlessly and consistently as Kevin Durant. The 6-foot-10 forward is quickly closing in on that select group.
Durant eclipsed 23,000 career points in Brooklyn's Sunday game against Charlotte. The 852 games he needed to reach the milestone is the ninth-fewest in league history.

Durant's surge through the record books comes despite playing just 27 games in 2014-15 and missing the entire 2019-20 season due to injury.
The former Kia MVP and 10-time All-Star appears fully recovered from the torn Achilles that kept him sidelined last season, a prospect that could vault his new team, the Nets, into title contention.
