Year: 2011

While you may not think "next Jordan" on the surface, the NBA's perpetual bridesmaid has established himself as a close-to Jordan like scoring threat (KD currently has three scoring titles compared to MJ's 10). At only 24 years of age, there's no doubt that Durant hasn't yet reached his ceiling and can still bud into an offensive A-bomb like Mike (not to mention win a ring). His defensive game getting to Jordan's level however is a total pipe dream.
