Re: Does LeBron vs. Durant resemble Magic vs. Bird at all?
It does in some way. Lebron is the all around player and Durant is the sharpshooter. But Bron is closer to magic than Durant to Bird. Bird's IQ was off the roof. Durant plays with heart but he's not the smartest player out there. Bird also lacked much athleticism and height advantage over his defenders, Durant's combination of height,reach and speed makes him difficult to guard.
