Just curious as to what ppl think. I thought of this at work. Lebron is obviously the better player but Durant is seen by most as the better person, teammate, and leader. Not to mention his loyalty to OKC.

Would OKC take Lebron for Durant?

No need to, they are on their way to the Finals, maybe a NBA Championship.

Doubt it.

I would, but OKC is built like a college team that their fans have loved and rooted for since the beginning. I don't think they're gonna want a perceived spoiled, arrogant, non-clutch selfish player, even if all of that is egregiously incorrect.

I wouldn't if I was them. Lebron is definitely the more talented player, but Durant is younger and has a ton less baggage.

Durant is 23 freaking years old and playing for the Championship. He has improved every year and has even improved over the course of this season.

A team would have to have a psycho running the FO to give up Durant for Lebron....

No, why wouldnt you keep the younger player with just as much potential?

Sometimes we forget how long LBJ has been in the league, he'll be 28 soon. Hard to believe he's been in the league 9 years already. He's probably peaked or close to it. Durant has not, we saw him take a big step forward this year.

Nah they wouldnt. Durant is younger. Plus, If you give Bron Westbrook, Harden, Ibaka, Perkins, etc I still don't think he would have gotten him this far.

Bron seems to need a a squad precisely built for him to win. Durant is easier to assemble a team around.

no

even though lebron is still the more complete player and the better play skill wise

why would u trade him as the others have suggested?

1) younger

2) also plays well with the thunder team and is a leader and has great chemistry with the guys

3) he's already carried them to the finals why would u want to change this ?

Well, as the current GM of OKC and avid PSD poster I will answer with a NO.

Never thought I would say this but if Durant could get better passing the ball,he would be the best player in the league hands down.

The thing that makes Lebron the better player is his ability to make others better,and Lebron can score just like Durant.

Why would they?

Lebron is the best player in the game. I was curious as to the public opinion, like a stated earlier

Durant is a little worse but a lot yonger.

OKC says NO!

As of late he's been showing that quality. Either letting others to get in groove and take over when he wants to or forcing so much attention that it leaves key players like harden wide open. He is developing right in our eyes and i low key hate it lol

Durant is probably the closet you will get to matching Lebron for best in the NBA right now. With that in mind if you tie in the circus that comes with having LBJ on your team it just wouldn't be worth it.

Lebron was loyal to Cleveland at age 23 too. Not saying Durant isnt loyal or wont be loyal but that argument doesnt make any sense.

I wasnt making an argument. I stated a fact. Durant is loyal to OKC and has never expressed any desire for a bigger stage or flirted with the possibility of leaving. Unless you can see into the future and tell me he will one day leave; as of right now Durant is more loyal to his team than Lebron is to his

Hel l NO,, Durant is the better player and why would you want a cancer of a player who cant hit game winner or pick up a team down 18.

Absolutely not. In fact, if I was starting a brand new team tomorrow, Durant would be my wet dream for first pick, EASILY over LeBron.

No, Durant is younger, more clutch, and cares more about basketball than Lebron.

I think the only egregiously incorrect thing here is your statement. Lebron is absolutely arrogant, I don't see any way someone could even fathom to begin arguing that.

Now, I still wouldn't trade KD for him. All KD wants to do is play ball and win. All Lebron wants to do is make money and worry about his image (examples include The Decision, The Nike Tape, Delonte West with his mom and I think for the fact that he doesn't do any of the all star festivities but the game. Jordan and Kobe have participated in dunk contests, Durant and Bird have done the 3 point contest and so on.)
