Default Re: Kevin Durant talks about modeling his game after Larry Bird

Yea, lots of similarities (mostly shooting/scoring) at that size/position... but Larry Bird had better bball IQ (maybe best ever at that), Durant will grow in that area im sure....
then he was a better rebounder (hustled more, stronger, battled the bigs), biggest difference is offensive rebounding..... Then he was a better post/team defender...
and last but not least in my book Bird possessed one of the 10 best passing skills/court visions ever, that will be close to impossible to emulate for Durant...
