The odds are if Kevin Durant wouldn’t have spent a year averaging 26 points a game in college, the 4x scoring champ would have been the youngest ever to reach 15,000. But I have a feeling that’s not the LeBron record KD really cares about. LeBron was 27 when he won his first championship and at age 26, I’m sure KD is hoping to join the likes of LeBron, Kobe and Michael Jordan who all won rings in their 20s.
But then there’s Wilt who was the 4th youngest on the 15k chart and he didn’t win his first ring until he was 31.
