Kevin Durant Wins Third Straight NBA Scoring Crown

Michael Garcia - April 27, 2012

Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant was the youngest person to ever win the NBA scoring title, and now he's the youngest to ever win three. Durant was leading Kobe Bryant in the race, with Bryant needing 38 tonight to overtake Durant.

It's not going to happen because according to, Kobe isn't playing tonight. That gives Durant the scoring crown with a 28.0 per game average for the 66 game season.

The last time an NBA scoring champ led his team to the Larry O'Brien trophy was back in 1999-2000, when Shaquille O'Neal averaged 29.7 points per game and the Lakers took home the title.

Durant can also pass.
