The way LeBron James sees it, Kevin Durant’s skill set and physical talents make for an unprecedented combination in the 70-year history of the NBA.

“He’s a 7-footer with 6-foot ballhandling skills and a jump shot,” James said after a Cleveland Cavaliers shootaround Thursday morning in preparation for a game against Durant’s Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday night. “And athleticism. It’s never been done in our league. Never had a guy that’s 7 foot, can jump like that, can shoot like that, handle the ball like that. So it sets him apart.”
