There was a downside to Durant becoming more vocal and expressive. He was hit with 12 technical fouls this season, as many as he's received combined in his first five years. He also was ejected for the first time in his career and picked up his first career flagrant foul. Each time he vowed to chill out, Durant almost comically would pick up another technical.
Ball-security: C. While his playmaking improved, Durant's tendency to throw it away did not. He tallied a career-high 280 turnovers, the fourth most in the league. Much of that was a result of having the ball in his hands more than he ever has. Still, he had trouble both with dribbling in traffic and making sharp passes without them getting picked off.
