    Is current KD better than Wade ever was?

    I saw a thread about Kobe vs Durant where many people said that current Durant is better than Kobe ever was.

    IMO Wade's best season statistically is slightly better than Kobe's so I thought KD vs Wade would be an interesting debate.

    Wade's 08-09 season:

    30.2PPG | 5.0RPG| 7.5APG | 2.2SPG | 1.3BPG | 3.4TOPG | .491 FG% | .317 TP% | .765 FT% |
    22.0 FGA

    Advanced Stats

    30.4 PER | .574 TS% | .232 WS/48 | .516 eFG% | 36.2 USG% | 14.7 WS

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Durant's 2012-2013 season:

    29.5PPG | 7.5RPG | 4.3APG | 1.6 SPG | 1.2BPG | 3.3TOPG | .519 FG% | .417 TP% | .910 FT% | 18,5 FGA

    Advanced Stats

    29.1 PER | .655 TS% | .304 WS/48 | .572 eFG% | 29.6 USG% | 10.6 WS

    Both are clutch, both can rebound. IMO Wade is a better passer, defender, but Durant is a better shooter.

    Who is the better player?

    Who is the better player?
    Wade is a better help defender than Durant. Durant is a better man defender. His length really bothers opposing SF's and it shows in his advanced stats.

    You can tell during games that opposing SF's rush their shots when Durant is guarding them because of his length. Also, every defensive stat supports that Durant is a very good defender, one of the best in the league by numbers alone.

    He has a 101 DRtg while Lebron has 102.

    Opponent efficiency is also very low, at 9.5. Lebron's is 14.6 in comparison.

    http://www.82games.com/1213/12OKC8.HTM
    When he guards opposing SF's, Durant holds them to a .407% eFG%. PF's is much higher at .476, but keep in mind this is eFG%, not FG%.
    http://www.82games.com/1213/12MIA9.HTM
    In comparison, Lebron holds his SF counterparts to .482 eFG% and opposing PF's to .500.

    I realize these are just statistics and don't tell the whole story, but by all measurable defensive statistics I've seen, Durant is an elite defender.

    He's having a better regular season than Wade's 08-09 so far. Wade's Finals run that year was legendary and does factor into things for sure. KD will get his ring(s) eventually.

    It's funny you should bring it up, that Finals performance is a huge part of the reason Wade is known as D-Whistle. He flopped like a fish all throughout the Finals and was bailed out by refs over and over again.

    Just a little reminder of how bad it was.

    There have been no Finals this year. Cant blame KD for something that hasn't happened yet.

    Besides Wade didn't make the Finals that year, are you trying to tell me that Wade wasn't as good or better than he was a few years prior?
    Yo Kobe, get at me bro, we'd have a good time, man
