Re: Brian Phillips article

In the only analogy out there, Durant is Jordan and Russ must be Pippen. "Scottie Pippen's sleepy cunning always seemed like a natural complement to MJ's wide-awake primacy — not too demanding, willing to do what was necessary, able to press or hang back whenever the moment required." In that explanation, Phillips does not realize he placed Russ as Jordan and KD as Pippen. But all the while, neither Russ nor KD can fit into those tiny boxes the ESPN family constantly tries to squeeze them into.
