2. Kevin Durant, Thunder

Stats: 27.8 PPG 8 RPG 3.4 APG 1.4 SPG 1.2 BPG
Salary: $16,324,500
Durant is having one of the best seasons in his young career. That's saying a ton since he's already won Rookie of the Year honors in 2008, made three consecutive All-Star teams, and is the two-time-defending scoring champion. It's not like he's a ball hog though, the Thunder are the team to beat in the West because of his unselfishness. He remains one of the most clutch players in the game and if he had a problem with Westbrook, the Thunder wouldn't have given Russ that extension. With all the shots they take between themselves, OKC still manages to play team ball. That's all KD right there. Not once do you see him complain, he's a throwback to the era where stars behaved like stars. We feel really, really, really bad for Seattle.
