    Default Forget LeBron, is CURRENT DURANT better than Kobes ever been?

    Kevin Durant Regular Season
    PPG: 28.1
    RPG: 7.9
    APG: 4.6
    FG%: 51.0%
    3PT: 41.8%
    FT%: 90.5%

    Durant is putting up legendary scoring numbers WHILE having 50-40-90 splits from the field.

    He is a tougher cover because of his height, length, and versatility.

    He is better on the boards and on help defense because of his height and length.

    I'll go on to say that Durant is better right now than Kobe has ever been.

    Well Durant is almost 7 feet so as a shooter he is better because it's harder to block him. But Kobe does things Durant can't, like be a playmaker for 48 minutes and ran a fastbreak faster. Durant can't because of his height, the playoff showed that.

    EDIT: Oh crap I can't believe I answered this troll

    No.

    Durant, last time I checked, 2 career assist average. He's not a very good playmaker. Can't play defense.

    He is a tougher cover because of his height, length, and versatility.

    He is better on the boards and on help defense because of his height and length.
    All because of his height?

    You basically saying Durant is better because of his height.

    You basically saying Durant is better because of his height.

    Newsflash

    Height matters in basketball. All of the best players in NBA History are 6'8+ except for Jordan who is a great because he is the best scorer of all-time(30.1 PPG on 50% shooting).

    Durant is a better scorer than Kobe. Takes better shots on higher percentages. He even won a playoff series this year without Westbrick. When has Kobe ever won a playoff series without a 7foot hall of fame bigman in his prime let alone an overrated point guard?

    What does Kobe do at an elite level other than score? Durants got him beat on his best attribute.

    Kobe has put up 30+/7/6/2+/1 seasons.

    How is he just a scorer?

    On what shooting percentages?

    Durant is probably the most efficient pure scorer on NBA History. If you want to hype up Kobe your going to need to bring something to the table other than 6.9 RPG(less than Durant) or 5.9 APG(1.7 more than Durant and due to him having the ball so much)

    So very good efficiency.

    What does this have to do with my point?

    You said Kobe is just a scorer.

    Tell me, do one-dimensional scorers put up 30/7/6/2/1 seasons? Do they put up post-seasons of 29+/7+/6+/2+? Or 30/6/6/2? Do they make multiple legitimately deserving All-Defense teams?

    LOL. Ignorant ass dudes these days.

    Durant is far more "one-dimensional" than prime Kobe was.

    Kobe was better. Durant may ultimately surpass him, but we haven't seen it yet.
