Durant.

Kobe has more offensive support.

True, but I brought this up because in 1993 MJ and Dominique finished 1 and 2 in scoring. The Bulls were the #1 seed and the Hawks the #8 seed seed and MJ still averaged more. 34.333 ppg vs 30.000 ppg for Nique.

It's going to be easier for Kobe to get his, but if OKC even wants to stay in the game, Durant is going to have to put up some crazy numbers.

And plus, we are talking about MJ here.

Nique was the best at not backing down from the challenge of dueling MJ. Which forced MJ to outdo him

That's because his name is Michael Jordan aka the GOAT.

Durant. Kobe has a lot of offensive support plus this is the Thunder's first playoff appearance. Being a young team, I am sure some of them might under perform because of the pressure and lack of experience. KD will be the one to carry step up and try to carry his team.

Durant. It will be Pau that dominates this series, not Kobe. Pau will have 2 20/20 games. Book it.

Durant, he also will have a 50-point performance in game 3.

Artest will be playing at his very best, and Jackson will keep playing his mind games, I don't c Durrant having a successful series, I see him getting 24ppg on under 40%FG, so I gotta go with Kobe 4 this one.

Durant. Kobe has way too many options.

Kobe can score 2PPG and if the other Lakers play their roles they will still win. If Durant scores under 10 points in a game, call it a night for the Thunder. Point being, Durant NEEDS to score and can score at will. Kobe doesn't need to score to get the win.

Durant, cause he probably has to for his team to stay in it, unless the Lakers just zero in on him entirely and attempt to make the others make them pay

I agree. Lakers bigs should be able to put up big numbers against the Thunder.

Durant, and in my opinion, its not even a contest. Kobe is struggling as of late, but even if he was not, he would be able to go to artest/gasol. Durant is pretty much going to carry his team to beat the lakers.

Durrant, Kobe has too much tallent around him. Pau, Odom, Artest, Bynum, just too much tallent not to distribute the ball. and Kobe is a better distributor at this point in their carears.

Obviously the guy who is averaging more for the season and whose team needs them to score more than the other guy's.
Durant, duh.

Durant---OKC is tiny in the post. Pau/Bynum will get a lot of fga and fta.

If the THUNDERS win the series then Kobe will be the top scorer (And there is reason behind it we all know), but if the Lakers play unselfish ball, then Durant easily will be the top scorer.

I don't think Durant will have a great series. Artest, Kobe, and even Odom are going to be too much for Durant too handle in a 7 games series. I see him averaging 20-25 ppg. Westbrook is the one IMO who is going to really shine in this series.

there is a misreading there actually...the lakers doesn't loss when kobe shoots a lot, kobe shoots a lot when the team plays terrible and down 10-15,and they do that a lot.

I want to say Durant, BUT Ron Ron is a GREAT defender and he will be even more physical with Durant in the playoffs. I dont know who will score more but i would bet that Durant doesnt make more than 10 fg's a game they rest of his points will be from the line. So it will come down to how physical will they let Ron Ron play.

Kobe, is a gammer also he can take over games that need to be taken over. But this series will be DOMINATED by Gasol and westbrook. Gerald Green has 0 chance of guarding him, and fisher has 0 chance of guarding westbrook.

I truly feel that if westbrook averages like 25 8 6 a game they will upset the lakers. Westbrook is one of the fasted pg's in the game fisher has no chance to guard him and will probably put the lakers big men in foul trouble.

PS. I hate the lakers im a suns fan

Durant.

Kobe has more offensive support.

yet he's still among the league leaders in field goal attempts (the last time I check number one). Kobe is going to get his shot attempts.

I want to start this by saying I can't stand the Lakers and I can't stand anything about Kobe and I feel that his existence makes this planet worse.

Now to my point....Kobe may be the greatest scorer in the history of the game, he can get his points whenever he wants and he knows it. Over the last year or 2 it seems that Kobe learned something important, if you want to win a championship or championships you need your supporting cast to be confident and playing well.

Durant will most likely score more because not only does he have to, but he doesn't having the supporting cast and even if he did I think he's a bit to young to be willing to sacrifice the way he needs to. Heck even Lebron seems to only be just learning how to truly be a strong teammate in the past year or 2.

Kobe has talent around him. if he's smart, he'll defer to these talent more. Durant? Who else on OKC can score? while kobe has a choice of scoring a lot...Durant HAVE TO score a lot if his team wants to have a chance of winning. LA doesn't need Kobe to score a lot...OKC NEEDS durant to score a lot. here lies the difference and the answer.
