    Durant is turnover machine
    Durant is babied by the refs, which accounts for his ridiculous foul draw rate (and thus, his efficiency)
    Durant is efficient, but his impact offensively is massively overrated. He doesn't open up the game for others (he gets in good positions to score, he's not dictating defenses to go anywhere)
    He admitted to being a cherry picker and avoiding bail out shots
    He absolutely sucks ass as a playmaker, both facilitating and creating shots-wise
    He sucks ass on defense, he had to be hidden behind Thabo in the playoffs (Kobe coasted on D in 2010 but in the playoffs he went straight back to elite.)

    Enough?

    Durant's peak so far > Kobe's.

    And Durant is still getting better (he might even get more superstar calls than Kobe ever got).

    Why did absence of light disturb him less than presence of noise?

    Because of the surety of the sense of touch in his firm full masculine feminine passive active hand.

    What quality did it (his hand) possess but with what counteracting influence?

    The operative surgical quality but that he was reluctant to shed human blood even when the end justified the means, preferring, in their natural order, heliotherapy, psychophysicotherapeutics, osteopathic surgery.

    What lay under exposure on the lower, middle and upper shelves of the kitchen dresser, opened by Bloom?

    On the lower shelf five vertical breakfast plates, six horizontal breakfast saucers on which rested inverted breakfast cups, a moustachecup, uninverted, and saucer of Crown Derby, four white goldrimmed eggcups, an open shammy purse displaying coins, mostly copper, and a phial of aromatic (violet) comfits. On the middle shelf a chipped eggcup containing pepper, a drum of table salt, four conglomerated black olives in oleaginous paper, an empty pot of Plumtree's potted meat, an oval wicker basket bedded with fibre and containing one Jersey pear, a halfempty bottle of William Gilbey and Co's white invalid port, half disrobed of its swathe of coralpink tissue paper, a packet of Epps's soluble cocoa, five ounces of Anne Lynch's choice tea at 2/- per lb in a crinkled leadpaper bag, a cylindrical canister containing the best crystallised lump sugar, two onions, one, the larger, Spanish, entire, the other, smaller, Irish, bisected with augmented surface and more redolent, a jar of Irish Model Dairy's cream, a jug of brown crockery containing a naggin and a quarter of soured adulterated milk, converted by heat into water, acidulous serum and semisolidified curds, which added to the quantity subtracted for Mr Bloom's and Mrs Fleming's breakfasts, made one imperial pint, the total quantity originally delivered, two cloves, a halfpenny and a small dish containing a slice of fresh ribsteak. On the upper shelf a battery of jamjars (empty) of various sizes and proveniences.

    What attracted his attention lying on the apron of the dresser?

    Four polygonal fragments of two lacerated scarlet betting tickets, numbered 8 87, 88 6.

    What reminiscences temporarily corrugated his brow?

    Reminiscences of coincidences, truth stranger than fiction, preindicative of the result of the Gold Cup flat handicap, the official and definitive result of which he had read in the Evening Telegraph, late pink edition, in the cabman's shelter, at Butt bridge.

    Where had previous intimations of the result, effected or projected, been received by him?

    In Bernard Kiernan's licensed premises 8, 9 and 10 little Britain street: in David Byrne's licensed premises, 14 Duke street: in O'Connell street lower, outside Graham Lemon's when a dark man had placed in his hand a throwaway (subsequently thrown away), advertising Elijah, restorer of the church in Zion: in Lincoln place outside the premises of F. W. Sweny and Co (Limited), dispensing chemists, when, when Frederick M. (Bantam) Lyons had rapidly and successively requested, perused and restituted the copy of the current issue of the Freeman's Journal and National Press which he had been about to throw away (subsequently thrown away), he had proceeded towards the oriental edifice of the Turkish and Warm Baths, 11 Leinster street, with the light of inspiration shining in his countenance and bearing in his arms the secret of the race, graven in the language of prediction.

    What qualifying considerations allayed his perturbations?

    The difficulties of interpretation since the significance of any event followed its occurrence as variably as the acoustic report followed the electrical discharge and of counterestimating against an actual loss by failure to interpret the total sum of possible losses proceeding originally from a successful interpretation.

    His mood?

    He had not risked, he did not expect, he had not been disappointed, he was satisfied.
