I don't think so but he stands a good chance.
Yes. Because he is better than Lebron. He has grown with the Thunder and has never been a media diva. I don't see KD leaving OKC for bright lights and endorsements. He will build his dynasty like MJ did. Lebron is more like Moses Malone... he can be the best player I the league on any team... But will never be a true leader or team builder.
Why does this dude make threads?
Big THX to MJ's Bulls and pheagles10 on the sig help!
I miss you.
No. LBJ just became the youngest player to reach 20,000 points.
Convenient that the rules were changed for draft eligibility right after LBJ was drafted. SMH. Durant would have beaten him otherwise.
Hopefully Silver drops this LBJ NBA marriage.
Ok good one troll
Not sure how you can prove the last sentence either. Yeah, he left Cleveland, but no one has ever accused him of being a poor leader or a poor teammate. Quite the opposite actually. He lead the Cavs to more success than probably anyone in the league could have. He came up short, but who wouldn't have?
No. LeBron is on a complete different level than anyone else in this league. The closest one to him is Trey5, but he is still has some catching up to do, IMO.
Welcome to the #tape
Lebron starting taking his game to the next level when he was 24 and won his first MVP. But then he went a step further last year and started to control the pace of the game and posting up. Check out his points per possession last year in the Finals in the post. He was getting even better shots for his teammates and won a ring as "the man". Not Kobe Style with Shaq. (not hating, just using a high profile example)
I'd say Durant is about equal to what Lebron was at 24, but since then Lebron has taken his team game to whole other level.
It's James as the best player in the league.
Better? No. Better at the stage of his career he is in? Probably.
If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
