    is Durant already better than Kobe ever was?

    We already know Lebron is better than Kobe ever was as a player, was already since 09. But is Kevin Durant this year better than Kobe ever was as well?

    I consider 06 to be Kobe's best regular season:
    35.4-5-5 45/35/85 56%TS 27fga, 10fta

    Durant this year:
    30-8-4 52/40/91 65%TS 18.5fga, 9fta

    dude is averaging 1.62 points per shot vs kobe's 1.31.

    almost a 10% difference in TS, he's having a tremendous 50/40/90 season while getting 30ppg.

    far more efficient of a scorer than Kobe ever was. Kobe also played 41+ mpg while durant is currently playing less than 40. Also avging only 0.3 less assists per game than Kobe did. All this while having a sub 30 usg% while Kobe had a usg% of almost 39.

    Lebron and Durant are both Forwards and huge (LBJ) tall (KD) men.

    They really shouldnt be compared to Kobe IMO. They should shoot higher percentages and be more efficient based on their size alone. Compare Kobe to other shooting guards.

    Lebron and Durant are APPLES vs. Oranges when compared with Kobe.

    if he keeps his assist to turnover ratio in check, than yes. but right now no.

    the reason why lbj is considered by many to be better than kobe ever was is because the dude is an overall better player.

    points, assists, rebounds, shot selections, versatile defender, etc.

    durant is a phenomenal player, good rebounder but as good as he is, kobe was better, not by much though!
    however, when you look at how they are individual defense-wise kobe was the superior defender.

    you think kobe would be able to coexist with Westbrook like Durant can?

    thats a tough one.. id say yes..

    although kobe is no slouch in that department. kobe, durant, dirk, hamilton have arguably the best mid range game in the game today..

    Kobe is not as good of a pure shooter as Durant is, which is why Durant is so good off the ball/spot up shooter while Westbrook hogs it all the time.

    wtf.. how does that make sense? they all have to go through pfs and centers.
    kobe is big for a 2 guard, so i dont see your point.

    all 3 are high usage players, and good scorers. therefore, you CAN compare and contrast to an extent.
