    are Lebron/Durant going to be the next Jordan/Drexler?

    in a sense that people always compared Drexler to be on par with Jordan even though Jordan was just flat out better and out played Drexler in their matchups.
    Is this decade going to be like that for Lebron(Jordan) and Durant(Drex)?


    edit: i guess this should be in the comparison forum.....

    Magic and Bird would make a better comparison. The distance between MJ and Drexler is WAY too big.

    so the distance between Lebron and Durant isn't that big? Just wondering what you think because I've heard people say Durant could being shooting 60/50/90 and he still wont be the best player in the league.

    Magic and Bird more likely since Durant will get some MVP's as well

    Thanks MJ-Bulls for the picture.

    Durant's better than prime Drexler and Jordan was better than prime Lebron, so I'm not buying it. It has the makings for the best rivalry of this generation for the next half decade, that's for sure.

    They are both easily great enough for this not to need any past comparisons. It will simply be theirs as Larry/Magic was their own. This is no big brother/little brother situation any more.

    No because the gap between Jordan and Drexler was much bigger.

    Lebron and Durant are close right now even if LBJ is still the greater player.

    they will go down as each others main rivals, and the best two players drafted in the 2000's.

    i'm not liking any comparison from the past. whens the last time we saw two elite sf's battle for supremacy? Bird and Dr. J in the early 80's? they are unique and will leave behind their own legacy, distinct from any two people we'd like to conveniently compare them to today.

    Lebron/Durant is what everyone thought Lebron/Melo would be.

    No.

    LeBron is to Jordan what Melo is to Drexler.

    The Magic/Bird comparisons for LeBron/Durant are silly considering they actually had a real rivalry.

    No matter how much the NBA tries there will never be any rivalry between the Heat & OKC just like they couldnt make a rivalry out of Cleveland/LA. There is just no connection there.

    No there is a distinction, (lots of it is based on the fact that the season is only 1/4 of the way) but it's just not nearly as large as the one between MJ and Clyde.

    People saying things doesn't make it a general concensus. People say a lot of stupid things, especially on free discussion forums where you don't use your real names.
