Uhm, isn't it just the fact that Durant is so deadly shooting the ball? With Bron, defenders are always sagging off a bit to be able to somewhat affect his drive or they just dare him to shoot. With Durant, defenders are all over all him of the time.

This, along with the fact that Durant most of the time is deliberately trying to get to the line just as much as he tries to score


that he has FREAKISHLY long arms attatched to that skinny, skinny frame that the defenders are draped all over makes it incredibly hard to defend/contest well without fouling when Durant does something unexpected. LeBron is more of a bulldozer who protects the ball simply by being a huge body coming at you - you know you are fouling him. Players get so tempted to slap at the ball when Durant drives, people just get out the way when Bron does
