LeBron will probably go down as the better player, but it's impossible to predict right now. If Durant does something like win 3 rings in the next 5 years, he would have GOAT potential.
They pretty much do tbh. There are obvious differences like passing (LeBron had more assists in 2 years than Durant in 5), and scoring (Durant is obviously a better scorer), but they're mirrors this far in.
As for saying if Durant wins 3 rings in the next five years he's got GOAT potential, well yeah you could pretty much say that about anyone though lol.
If Blake Griffen were to win 3 titles in the next 5 years he'd have GOAT potential too... Of course if he won the FMVP's, if not then it's moot.
