1 month, 1 week ago on Durant the defender, and closing the gap on LeBron
@duhsweetness You in Atlanta? Took me 3.5 hours to get home to Marietta...and I left at 12:15!
@L0rv @Jooseppi @ Luke Agreed!
@Yeahright17 @blackhiiippy @harmlesslyfatal @Kivman Hope you are right!
@harmlesslyfatal @MJOKC @Se-PumpFake-olosha @d21 @KD4theWin Man...we just couldn't hit anything to start the game and Hawks were on fire. That didn't have anything to do with big vs. small. However, I'm also not willing to argue you on the fact we got back into the game with a smaller lineup.
@L0rv @Kivman Good question...I don't have an answer. If the Thunder win the championship and KD outplays LeBron, I think that would go a long way toward the "pass the torch" argument. If KD continues to play better into next year (which is far from a given), then I think that would do it. Just my opinion.
@harmlesslyfatal @Kivman @Yeahright17 @blackhiiippy But Wade hasn't missed the entire year. And Russ has missed more than Wade. Therefore, I don't understand this argument as supporting LeBron vs. Durant for the current year.
I don't know if they would miss Ibaka more than Russ. I would guess Russ because he's an overall better player, but I get the positionaly/replacement argument.
@L0rv Despite my earlier rant, I just think people want to see more than 1 year of Durant being better than LeBron before they allow themselves to believe that Durant has passed him. This is reasonable and may or may not prove true. Either way, LeBron and Durant are a close 1-2 (in some order) and number 3 (Paul, George, whoever) are a clear ways behind.
@harmlesslyfatal @Kivman @Yeahright17 @blackhiiippy I was being sarcastic. One of our big 3 has been as injured, or more injured, than one of their big 3...so I don't get your point.
@MJOKC @d21 @KD4theWin That annoyed me. I kept waiting for him to be put back in...
@harmlesslyfatal @Yeahright17 @blackhiiippy @Kivman Some of our big 3? Is Westbrook included in that big 3?!?
@blackhiiippy @Kivman @MJOKC @ Luke @Sustainable Parameters I whole-heartedly agree with your first point. Their cowardice annoys me!
@f5alcon @Kivman Wish that were possible... :)
@Sustainable Parameters @Kivman Why do you (and everyone else) feel compelled to?
@harmlesslyfatal @MJOKC He should, though. He was robbed quite a few times. If he played in the current era, I think this would not happen as much (and, vice-versa, if LeBron played in the Jordan era he would have been screwed a few times, too). However, this year Durant deserves the MVP over LeBron (so far).
@MJOKC @ Luke @Kivman @Sustainable Parameters Agreed. Why the need to make the distinction when the topic is MVP? That's my issue. Everyone seems compelled to make the distinction when it is not asked.
@El Prez @Kivman @Sustainable Parameters I'd be worried I'd get drunk with her and do something I'd regret the next morning...
@blackhiiippy @Kivman @ Luke @Sustainable Parameters I hear what you are saying. But why do they need to caveat their response in this way? Why the need to put it in the context of LeBron?
Actually, I understand why...because he's dominated for multiple years. I'm just hoping the need to put Durant's MVP campaign in the "ranking against LeBron" narrative dies down because I really think it takes away from Durant and makes it seem like their is still a clear cut difference between the two of them, when I think Durant is making the case that it has narrowed down and, based on this year, it is possible Durant has caught him.
@ Luke @Kivman @Sustainable Parameters Sure it is. It takes something away from Durant.
@El Prez @Kivman @Sustainable Parameters Agreed! Unless they are genuinely funny...
