Free throws do matter but no to the point where you can say he's the MVP. In that sense, we should disqualify Shaq because he's not good at it. Those free throw points will fall into Durant's PPG and that is why I don't include it. It's already in his PPG, why state it again?
Why can't we ramp up LeBron's case if his team isn't performing the way they should? That makes no sense. Swap Kobe with LeBron. Do you think they will have the same success? No, because the team does matter. Durant's team is better than LeBron's.
