    Nah simply because durant gets to the free throw line, Gay doesn't have the mentality yet, its coming hes gotten better at it this year. I think being on the Grizzlies is tough for him and for mayo as well, there starting 5 are all solid and all needs shots. Rudy Gay has sick potential depending on where he ends up next year everyone will see.

    if Durant was on the Grizzlies he would avg about 23-24 points THIS YEAR. If Gay was on the thunder he would avg 24-26 points THIS YEAR.

    Kevin Durant is way way better than Rudy Gay. If you have to say Rudy Gay is as good as someone else, it shows lack of confidence.

    Kevin Durant's first step will leave you glued to the floor.

    Maybe they are equally talented, but talent means jack shit when it comes to producing on the court. KD is playing at a level that few have ever played at and he is actually being able to keep up with LeBron in terms of scoring which is incredibly impressive. If they switched teams neither team would be as good, but Gay would improve his numbers a bit because Memphis has a ton of firepower in the starting line up.

    Durant:

    eFG%: 51.2

    TS%: 60.2

    Gay:

    eFG%: 49.5

    TS%: 53.8

    I know it's easy just to say "he needs to work on FTs" and then just let it be that. But ability to get to the line and make your shots there is huge, there's a reason it's one of the 4 factors of basketball. It's also one of the reasons why Durant is one of the 2 best scorers in basketball. Durant gets there 10 times a game compared to Gay's 5 times a game. Big difference since Gay still scores 2/3 of Durant number of points in per game.

    So no Rudy Gay is not as good a scorer as Durant and he's got a long way to go.

    But he is a good player though, no doubt about it. Durant is just better, while still being 2 years younger.

    Rudy Gay is easily as good as Durant. And with Gasol and Mayo it's a great future.

    The reason the Thunder are a good ways better then Memphis is because Westbrook is >>> Mayo.

    I can't wait to see you fluffing Jeff Green now you ass clown.

    So Gay will suddenly show his potential to be the number 2 SF behind Lebron if he goes to a worse team. Nice reasoning there genius. Maybe he can lead this mystery team to more lottery balls then the Grizzlies since his awesome teammates are bringing him down.

    Because they are cheap, want to ditch Thabeets worthless contract, and think Conley is a bench player. They can ditch Mayo and get a real hybrid scoring guard who can run the point for 20-30 minutes a game.

    Even without Wall... A Harris-Gay-Lopez would be nice... Lee has been nice defensively... The Nets need a low post defensive presence... A pf not afraid to to the dirty work.

His rebounding is lowered because he plays with 2 guys that average 11 and 9 reounds a game.
    If Rudy plays with so much better talent (which reduces his stats), then why does Durant's team have a better record?
