    Pre back injury T-Mac for me please. KD's padded production with soft foul calls is annoying.

    Good question.

    Tmac for that one year was better than Durant has ever been. However, Durant's other seasons have been much better.

    I don't even believe that.

    T-Mac = 32/6.5/5.5 on 46%

    Durant = 28/8/3.5 on 51% or 30/7.6/3 on 48%

    Was he really better?

    T-Mac didn't play with a Westbrook distracting defenses with elite penetration and finishing abilities. Mac also played in a more difficult defensive era, where touch calls didn't get him on the line for a gifted 4 - 8 ppg on free throws, yet still averaged 4 more ppg. That's kind of significant difference. So yes, it is more impressive when Darrell Armstrong is your second best player as opposed to Russell Westbrook.

    Plus, Tmac has always taken care of the ball very well.

    He only had 2.6 TO/gm which is ridiculous considering how often he had the ball.

    mcgrady averaged 8 free throws per game in his orlando prime (01-04). durant has averaged 8.7 in okc. that doesn't account for an extra 4-8 ppg

    durant has, however, averaged just as many points (28) while taking 3.5 fewer fgs per game

    personally, on an aesthetic level, i like kd's game way more. t-mac always seemed like a borderline chucker.....not iverson level, but he definitely had those tendencies. playing on shitty teams might have brought that out in him, i suppose

    Watching them tells the difference in context of the foul calls. Watch the games, don't just compare the numbers. McGrady was more prone to create off the dribble (seeing as how his handle is way better) and attack the rim than Durant.

    KD will literally get soft, rip through foul calls where he initiates the contact in the friggin TRIPLE THREAT position.

    It isn't just a comparison of the amount of free throws they get, it's the type of calls they get. You breathe on KD and his small, feminine shoulder frame amplifies any kind of contact making it seem worse.

    T-Mac, he played right before hand-checking was completely removed in 2004.

    I'll go with T-Mac. What were Durant's numbers when Westbrook was out last year? Not sure if that helps or hurts Durant's case.
