Default Re: Does LeBron vs. Durant resemble Magic vs. Bird at all?

No, I don't think they will ever reach the level of that rivalry. Magic/Bird went beyond basketball. Their rivalry started in college, they had great storylines, they represented different facets of the American society, and they both had tremendous personalities (Magic the fun loving happy go lucky guy, Bird the ruthless killer and trash talker). Durant and Lebron aren't interesting enough as people nor do they have the history to reach that kind of rivalry.
