    for this playoffs, it's between Westbrook and LeBron. I would give the nod to Westbrook, but it's not by much.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    A big case. KD is a far superior shooter. Westrbrook explosiveness trumps Lebrons overall game. They both have shown that they can take over a game at any moment and put the game out of reach, KD with lights out shooting and Russ with his pure relentlessness.

    And I don't think Westbrook and Lebron would be lethal at all because Lebron doesn't have the outside shooting to balance it out. That's what makes that combo so deadly is KDs sniping, whereas you could pack the paint on Russ and just give Lebron the jumper.

    Curry
    Lebron
    Durant
    Westbrook

    Those are the top 4 in that order. But as I've said in the past, there isn't much separating these guys. It is virtually a 4 way tie, even though it is pretty clear that Curry had the best season out of the 4 this year and deserved the unanimous MVP.

    Durant had a slightly better regular season than LeBron, but he is nowhere near LeBron in the playoffs this year when it comes to numbers. You talk about Durant's shooting, when in reality, LeBron is killing him in FG%, TS% and actually shooting the same 3% in the playoffs.....

    LeBron rests during the regular season now. I don't think he is the LeBron of old by any means, but he is dominant in these playoffs. But I can also understand the argument that the Spurs/Warriors will probably lower anyones efficiency, so really I am just pointing it out. LeBron is vastly outplaying Durant in the playoffs, numbers wise.

    Yeah but one is shooting dunks and lay ups while the other is shooting pull 2s and 3s so do you really take the numbers that seriously?

    What's Lebrons percentage from 3pt line? It was a horrible 30% for the season and a even worse 28% for the playoffs. Not to mention 64% from the line, while KD just hit something like 28 straight free throws. Meaning you can once again either back off Lebron and give him the shot or put him on the line.

    So while Lebrons overall stats might look better right now he can't buy a 3 to save his life and he's a liability at the line. I'd like easily take KD any day!

    I don't think Lebron should be given extra credit for resting in the regular season just to turn it up in the playoffs. I wonder what curry or KD would look like in the playoffs if they were able to rest through the regular season .

    yep. Despite losing a step, and his shot bailing, LeBron is still more efficient. That matters.

    Like I said, they are both shooting the same from 3, so Durant is actually not shooting any better. In these playoffs, LeBron is clearly the superior player.

    Really, the ONLY argument that brings them closer is level of competition they have/are facing.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    Well if you truly believe Lebron is the better player then the Finals are about to be truly enlightening for you.

    Westbrook is assist leader. He also finds his big in traffic and sets them up perfect. Hits Durant perfect on those slashes to the rim. James just finds the 3 point shooter.

    Westbrook covers more of the floor and explodes on those passing lanes. Westbrook takes risk and the payoffs are the elite offenses getting many turnovers. James has Lowey and DeRozen exploding and taking over the game.

    Finally James shys away form the ball in crunch time and gets rattled. Westbrook does the rattling.

    He's just not in this discussion in my opinion. Hell of a player and great defender. Basically the opposite of Curry, great defender, questionable offense at times. His offense is definitely improving though.

    Westbrook was good late game last night but for the whole season he was probably the worst superstar in late game situations.
