Default Re: Durant vs Lebron: Skill vs Brute Force

There are a couple of pretty cool comparisons here, like the flash vs no flash, humble vs loves the spotlight.

However, the skill vs brute comparison is pretty incorrect. Lebron is incredibly skilled, and he's more skilled than Durant in every way besides scoring. Lebron is more skilled in passing, playmaking, rebounding, and defense. You can make the case that his rebounding prowess is due to his athleticism, but we've seen Durant board better over the years even though his athleticism has stayed the same. This is an increase in skill, a skill which Lebron already had. The other areas rely a lot on skill, and almost everyone would agree that Lebron has better passing and playmaking ability than Durant does.
