With the current NBA rules, no one player can stop him.

In my opinion, the hand check rule that is being implemented is making kd and other scorers very tough to guard. I think the elite defenders of the past can shut these players down.

Rodman in his prime would check Durant and anyone else in the game today. And by check, I mean lock down and send into the locker room crying.

Pippen in his prime and Artest in his prime are a close 2nd, but Rodman is the greatest and most versatile defender in NBA history. He's too strong for KD.

Artest did a decent job in '10, but Durant has gotten a lot better since then.

The 2008 Celtics would make Durant throw fits.

2004 Pistons and 2008 Celtics would hold him under 30.

Once he gets that shot going, there's almost no one to stop him. Maybe rodman, but he'd get fouled up with all the hand checks.

[expletive]...Tony Allen gets under Kevin Durant's skin.

 

 

If Tony Allen can play good D on him, then Pippen, Artest, Jordan, and Rodman would make him hate life.

Pau Gasol is GONE

y'all realize that Pippen's best asset as a defender is his length.

 

 

I look at Durant and I don't think anyone's arm length could hurt his game, I do think Pippen's wiry strength could neutralize KD

Tony Allen have actually checked him. Check this clip:

 

Artest in his prime as well as Kobe, MJ, Bowen would have done a good job, but Pippen i think would have been the best option. 

 

Perhaps Kirilenko in his prime with his long arms.

No mention of Sidney Moncrief?

 

KD is longer than him but he's also longer than MJ as well.

In a serious game, Pippen could not lock down MJ.

Calm down, Durant ain't that good.

 

Pippen, Cooper, Jordan, Kobe, Artest, Dennis Johnson, Dave DeBusschere, John Havlicek, Sidney Moncrief, Dennis Rodman, Gary Payton, Bruce Bowen, etc.
