Kevin Durant is known as one of the greatest scorers of his generation and he proved so again with a significant milestone.

By Eurohoops team /

The Golden State Warriors‘ forward scored his 20,000th career point on Wednesday night, an accomplishment only 9 players in NBA history did in fewer games.

Durant accomplished this in 737 games thanks to the 27.1 points per game he has averaged over that span. When it comes to age, only LeBron James reached the 20,000-point mark sooner.

Durant is only the 44th player in NBA history to score more than 20,000 points. Only seven retired players who have done so are not yet in the Hall of Fame: Ray Allen, Kobe Bryant, Tom Chambers, Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett, Antawn Jamison and Paul Pierce.
