Kevin Durant is a five-time NBA All-Star, four-time scoring champion, FIBA World Champion and Olympic Gold Medalist. Now, following today’s official announcement, we can call Durant the NBA’s Most Valuable Player.

This season, Durant posted career highs in scoring (32.0 ppg) and assists (5.5 apg), also adding 7.4 rpg. He became one of only four players to ever average 32+ ppg, 7+ rpg and 5+ apg in a season, joining Michael Jordan, Wilt Chamberlain and Elgin Baylor. Durant scored 40+ points in 14 games and 25+ in 41 consecutive games, the third longest streak of its kind.

Behind Durant’s leadership, the Thunder weathered Russell Westbrook’s injury woes and finished with 59 wins, second best in the tough Western Conference.

It’s been an uphill battle for Durant, who finished second in MVP voting to LeBron James in three of the last four seasons. With another piece of hardware added to his ever-growing collection, he now turns his attention to the final piece of the puzzle — an NBA Championship.

Durant’s preferred shoe for his MVP season was the Nike KD 6, which you can pick up in a variety of colorways now at Eastbay.
