Those dreaded seven words have been uttered once again.

This time, it's the turn of 2014 NBA MVP Kevin Durant, to do so.

In a recent interview with the Washington Post, Durant said the exact same words Lebron James infamously mouthed during a post-game press conference at this year's Finals.

"I feel like I’m the best player in the world," KD told reporters at USA Basketball's two-day mini-camp in Las Vegas. "No disrespect to other players here, but I always got that confidence… I never had no doubts in myself."

- NBA Rookie of the Year: 2008
- 5x All-NBA First Team selection: 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014
- 5x NBA All-Star: 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015
- NBA All-Star Game MVP: 2012
- Best Male Athlete ESPY Award winner: 2014
- Best NBA Player ESPY Award winner: 2014


It would also be blasphemous to ignore his most notable performances, like his...

The Slim Reaper's resume as a pro is already quite impressive at this point of his career, but we believe that he still has a lot to prove before being regarded as THE BEST. For now, he must first focus on returning to the hardcourt and to his old self.

Now let's see what the real G.O.A.T., Michael Jordan, has to say about this...
