Move over, LeBron James. There’s a new best player in the world.
In June, James declared with confidence he’s the world’s best basketball player, despite the fact that his Cleveland Cavaliers had just to the Golden State Warriors in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.
However, Kevin Durant feels differently.
KD: "No disrespect to anyone else but I feel like I'm the best player in the world."—

It’s not really surprising that the Oklahoma City Thunder star considers himself to be the best. As someone who’s deserving of consideration, is he supposed to say he’s not that good?
Still, Durant brings up a debate that will never end, especially because the NBA’s best are in Las Vegas for Team USA minicamp, and they’ll soon find out who the actual best players in the world are.
