    Default Kevin Durant = something unique that this game has never seen.



    A 6'10 swingman with KG's height and length, with guard-like dribbling and shooting ability, great rebounding ability, good shotblocker, and good defender. If he adds a bit more weight, develops a post game, and improves on his passing ability this guy is gona be unstoppable.

    He's actually nothing like Tracy Mcgrady and he's already right now at 21 better than T-Mac was in his prime.

    That would be like comparing LeBron to Malone just based on body type

    Tmac was a better ball handler by a lot, a far better passer, and before about 03...a better defender. Durant is tmac with better shot selection and far less athletic ability.

    T-Mac is 6'8 and far more the traditional SF than Durant is. A 6'9-6'10 guy with incredibly long arms who handles the ball as well as he does is pretty much unheard of.

    T-Mac was nowhere near the scorer Durant is and Durant is much taller/longer.

    You do realize that KD is probably a good 4-5 years or more from actually reaching his prime don't you?

    Nowhere near the scorer/shooter?

    Dude, what are you, 9?

    Can someone please ban this guy?

    You've said many ridiculous things but this might be the worst. T-mac was nowhere near the scorer/shooter Durant is...

    Yeah, it's a disgrace that people actually brought T-mac's name into this thread. There's 7 mods here, i'm sure one of you can clean up this shit.

    Nah, 2003 T-Mac>2010 Durant. McGrady scored more than Durant that season and was a much better passer as well as being a better defender.

    In 2003, McGrady's prolific 3 point shooting, ability to shoot off the dribble or move off the ball and drill mid-range shots as well as superior athleticism and ball handling ability which made him capable of getting to the basket and finishing over anyone or scoring with acrobatic lay ups made him atleast as good of a scorer, actually, better, IMO, atleast in that season.

    As far as passing, this isn't even close. McGrady was capable of running his team's offense and setting up his teammates, Durant doesn't have that ability and hasn't shown any signs that he ever will.

    I'll also take a young, healthy T-Mac over Durant defensively.

    With that being said, I will acknowledge that outside of 2003, there's not really any seperation between T-Mac and Durant because Durant's scoring easily trumps any of McGrady's other seasons and his rebounding is on par or better. However, it's important to note that scoring was very low league wide when McGrady won his second scoring title.

    And for the record, I'd take 2002 and 2005 T-Mac over Durant as an overall player.

    Durant is on par with prime T-Mac(2001-2007), but not peak T-Mac(2003)

    It'll be a matter of time before Durant is traded to Boston. No way is a future Top 5 player of all-time playing on a small market team like OKC.

    I'm hoping sooner than later that he'll be in Celtics uniform.

    Again, are we acknowledging that KD is 21 years old? He has not yet reached his prime, so why are we comparing a prime T-mac to Kevin Durant who hasn't yet reached his?
