Kevin Durant is as lethal a scorer as the NBA has ever seen.
When he hangs up his sneakers, he is going to be way up the all-time scoring list. On Wednesday night, he stepped up that ladder with a first quarter jumper that moved KD past Allen Iverson on the all-time scoring list with 24,369 points.

Durant will pass Ray Allen at 24,505 in the coming weeks.
Only two active players are ahead of Durant on the all-time scoring list, LeBron James (35,549 coming into tonight) and Carmelo Anthony (27,656). Everyone eligible player on the list above Durant is a Hall of Famer (Dirk Nowitzki and Vince Carter are not yet because they have not been retired long enough to have been nominated).
