Kevin Durant has been virtually unstoppable lately. And by lately we pretty much mean since he entered the league in 2007.

How hot is he right now? He's averaging just over 37 points a game in the last 10 games.

His torrid play has earned him a new nickname, courtesy of the Internet. That nickname? The "Slim Reaper."

Get it? Because he's really thin and he destroys other teams. The nickname has taken off lately on Twitter.
