    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.
    Yeah it makes no sense... Even CP3 has had a season where he's shot .503%

    I think most here know my position on Kobe. Is Durant currently better than Kobe ever was? No, he is not. Will Durant most likely have a stronger peak? Yes, he will. Will Durant have the better career? That needs to be determined in like 12 years.

    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.

    I don't think so at all. Maybe he'll surpass him some day but Kobe did a whole lot in his career.

    Kobe's best year was the 05/06 season.

    PER 36:

    31.1 PTS, 4.0 AST, 4.7 TRB

    28.0 PER | .559 TS% | .491 eFG% | 24.1 AST% | 9.0 TOV% | 38.7 USG% | 15.3 WS | .224 WS/48


    Durant this year:

    PER 36:

    26.8 PTS, 3.9 AST, 6.8 TRB

    29.0 PER | .652 TS% | .567 eFG% | 20.0 AST% | 12.5 TOV% | 29.7 USG% | 10.3 WS | .303 WS/48




    Right now, 2013 Durant is on a entirely different level than 05/06 Kobe - Durant is better. Durant is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more efficient than kobe was; just look at the TS% and eFG%.


    Also Durant currently leads the lead in WS and WS/48

    Welcome to Anfield Mr. Balotelli!

    If he sustains this level of play all season then I think there is a very, very, very strong argument to say that it was better than Kobe's best season ever. I'm sure the Kobephiles will just shrug off any statistic you throw at them as meaningless, but any statistical breakdown makes a compelling case for KD.

    However!

    I don't think it's quite that black and white. KD relies on Russy more than most people want to admit. KD, while vastly improved, is not on Kobe's level defensively. And then, of course, there is RINGZ. He don't got them.

    If you're talking about their best season, you can debate it.

    I don't know if you can say it's apples and oranges...
    it's not like you're comparing a center and a point guard. 2's and 3's aren't too dis-similar.

    If you're gonna use that argument, then Kobe in 06 should have significantly more steals (he didn't), way more assists (he didn't), shoot a better FT% (he didn't) and hit a lot more 3's (he didn't) at a better 3P% (he didn't).
    (all the "guard" stats)

    That said, Kobe is a champion. I would say Durant is a better player than Kobe was, but Kobe was greater, if that makes sense.
    And I hate Kobe.
    This thread will go like pretty much all Kobe-related threads go... all Lakers fans will say no, and pretty much everyone else will say yes.
