A few questions, based on some stuff I've read recently in threads.
Why is it acceptable for Durant to fail when he had Harden, Westbrook and Ibaka (and now with just the latter two), but completely unacceptable for Lebron to fail with Wade and Bosh? Durant has the same amount of help that Lebron does, so why hasn't he won a ring? Why aren't people giving him a hard time like you gave Lebron?
Why does Melo get a pass? Why is it okay for him to fail without help but Lebron gets criticized for not being able to win without it? Why is it that we shouldn't expect Melo to win without help, but we should Lebron? If Lebron was on that squad instead of Melo, and they were not making the playoffs, would you be as sympathetic?
Why is it that people think Lebron isn't one of the top ten all time because he hasn't won enough championships, but at the same time, people think Durant is as good (or better than) Lebron when Durant hasn't won a ring, an MVP, or pretty much achieved anything in his career?
I don't mean to say that you should measure a player by how many rings he has won, that's stupid, I dislike that approach, but a lot of people do rely on it.
I actually find Durant a more entertaining player to watch, I enjoy his game more. So I'm not a Lebron dickrider and I'm not trying to disrespect KD or anything, don't start that. I'm simply wondering why people have different rules for Lebron than they do for KD and Melo etc but then argue those two are just as good.
