    This has Wade written all over him.

    Durant has the possibility to surpass Wade and Kobe this season depending on how much more his team and himself improves.

    Durant is the better rebounder, defender, and scorer, while Wade is the far superior playmaker. Durant's edges in scoring, efficiency, and rebounding are pretty big, but so is Wade's edge on playmaking. It's close and really depends on team build and philosophy, but if I had to choose I'd say Durant.

    Wade is a better defender than Durant, and Durant is like 4 inches taller than Wade, so yea hes gonna have more rebounds, Wade is better and its not really that close.

    And Wade plays guard, so he's going to have better playmaking. Synergy numbers suggest Durant is a better defender than Wade (his 7'5" wingspan might have to do with it). Yes, it is close.

    no, I accually really like Durant, I "hate" the fact that people act like he is better than Wade and Lebron, which is completly untrue. They are the top 2 players in the league, just because they are now on the same team hasnt changed that. You all say they havent played together yet, so if they havent played together yet, and were both better than Durant last year, how is Durant better than them now?

    Wade wasn't better then durant last year at least as far as numbers go

    Durant Wade
    WS per 48 .238 .224
    WS 16 13
    DWS 5 4.6
    OWS 11 8.5
    Drtg(lower=better)104 103
    Ortg 118 113
    USG(Lower=better)32% 34.9% led league
    TOV%(Lower=better)11.7 12.2
    BLK% 1.9 2.4
    STL% 1.8 2.7
    AST% 13.5 36.4
    ORB% 3.8% 4.5%
    DRB% 18% 11.1%
    TRB% 11% 7.8%
    efg% .514 .500
    TS% .607 .562
    PER 26.2 28.0

    So statistically Durant is either better then or equal to Wade Also no one in this thread has said Durant is better then Lebron this is about Durant vs Wade which is a very valid argument considering statistically there close

    You were the one all over the Melo/Durant comparison thread trying to argue in Melo's case when Durant is clearly the better player.

    Good try.

    Wade for me. The man already proved he can win as the man and do so in stunning fashion. I need to see Durant perform well in the playoffs before I can take him over Wade.

    Thanks MJ-Bulls for the picture.

    I see I shouldn't bother with facts so I guess I'll go with opinion.

    I would take 21 year old Durant in a heartbeat over 28 year old Wade. Durant is a better rebounder, more effiecient scorer (and its not even close), while being a great defender himself (when your 6'9''-6'10'' guarding 6'4'' people your going to disrupt them)

    Wade is a better facilitator but Durant doesn't need to be one on that Thunders team. They have an all-star caliber pg running the point, and a little bit better on defense.
