KD was 0-2 shooting in the 4th quarter of game 1 as his team blew a 9 point lead...and he was 1-3 shooting in the 4th quarter of game 2.


LeBron would get killed for this.

Yes they are, if Bron took that many shots I would've had to break my tv because of Skip Baylesses trolling.

Yes, LBJ would get killed for this, but to mention LBJ's name when starting a thread and bringing it up won't help his cause.

I think because he is young and the media and fans are to busy hating Lebron they don't have time to question other players.

Durant is playing REALLY well this playoffs. But his help is also playing beyond unreal. Yet he gets the credit, not the criticism.

The same can't, and will never, be said of LeBron.

Yeah he is playing really well, but he seems to disappears for long stretches. He often can't shake his defender, when he plays of the ball. This is not only on his shoulders though, they seem to have very few plays to rub of the defender before the catch.

But if LeBron would disappear like Durant does at times he would get blasted into oblivion.

Durant didn't have a TV show where he debated if he should leave OKC then threw a party when he left. Durant wasn't on the covers of ESPN The Magazine and Sports Illustrated before he was a senior in high school. Those covers were the beginning of a long line of unrealistic expectations that have been with LeBron his entire career.

In short, people dislike LeBron, people have unrealistic expectations and the media loves feeding into it, because LeBron brings higher ratings.
