Michael Jordan continues to fall down the all-time Team USA Olympic scoring charts during the 2016 games in Rio de Janeiro. After Carmelo Anthony jumped from fourth to first during the group stages, Kevin Durant has now moved ahead of 'His Airness'.
The Chicago Bulls legend ended his international playing career with 256 points. The Golden State Warriors' newest man moved ahead of him with a 27-point performance in the quarterfinals win over Argentina.
In arguably his best performance of the tournament so far, the 2014 Most Valuable Player shot 7-9 from three-point range while also providing seven rebounds, six assists, and two steals in the blowout victory.
Having scored 84 points during the five group games and 156 at London 2012, Durant has 267 and is closing in on the records of LeBron James (273) and David Robison (270). Anthony, who has been an influential figure thus far in Brazil, continues to move out at the top of the table and has amassed 322 points during his Olympic career.
KD will move into second during the United States' game against Spain in the semifinals on Friday, and with at least one more Olympic tournament in him - if he fancies it - he can definitely surpass the number set by Melo. With LeBron hinting at a return for Tokyo 2020, he could also move up the rankings.
Of course, team success is much more important than individual honours, and gold is the aim of this trip. The States appeared to finally hit their stride against Argentina and will need to recreate that level of performance to overcome Spain.
