Why is Kevin Durant so overrated?

Yes, he can score but 27.1 ppg doesn't put him in the same class as guys like Jordan or Wilt. There are literally thousands of guys out there who can score like that if they could get to the NBA and take enough shots. 

Beyond that though he isn't really good at anything. 

7.1 rpg is HORRIBLE for a guy his size who frequently plays PF. 

He's average at best on defense. He's never won any defensive awards and his DBPM puts him below average. 

Golden State was actually better without him. 

I would rate him as slightly above average. It's absurd to me that he gets mentioned as one of the better players in the NBA let alone all-time.
