Obviously, KD is **EASILY** one of the absolute best pure scorers in the history of NBA. People who despites KD have no problem admitting it. However, KD isnt exactly an elite defenser or floor general who can run an offense. Do you think Prime KD was just a pure scorer?
His defense while on the warriors was actually statistically really good if I remember correctly
He had a DPIPM of 0.1 from 2016-2019 RPM he had -0.5, -1.88, -1.64
Honestly when you have anacondas for arms all you really have to do is stay in front of somebody with your hands up.
Thats not what one dimensional means, hes a pure scorer sure, but he can do it through midrange fade ways, three pointers, both on iso and off ball catch and shoot, dunk, slash, he can do any of jt Giannis is who you are thinking of, he just drives to th

He was one of the most multifaceted scorers in NBA history. Judging by the body of your post, I think you meant to ask if his only elite offensive skill was scoring. I agree with that since he wasnt an elite playmaker.
No he was more than just a scorer. From 2016 WCF onward he was an elite all around player. Not an elite man to man defender but the totality of his defense was borderline elite. His playmaking improved quite a bit as well. One of the most complete players
This isnt what I F5-ed for.
One-dimensional in a scoring basketball context means they can only score in a singular manner effectively (e.g. near the basket). I think you are mistakingly interchanging the terms “pure scorer” and “one-dimensional.” And to answer your question
