    OP is spot-on because didn't Durant struggle when Westbrook missed the playoffs that one year?

    He numbers do seem to benefit from a sidekick

    Part of the reason is that he isn't a high volume shooter so he doesn't jack shots like he's supposed to when he has no sidekick.. so he doesn't get in a rhythm via high volume and prefers a sidekick to take pressure off

    Unlike Curry, KD can shoot over people.

    Also saying KD scored zero in clutch situation and then bringing up stats where he scored a litzle bit less than Curry one year and kept his production the next.

    This is an English speaking forum. Even if it was readable.. from what I could discern it was heading in a low iq direction regardless.

    KD being tall doesnít change the fact that he got wide open opportunities that wouldnít of mattered if he was 6 or 7 feet tall, due to the defensive schemes Cleveland was forced to run against Curry. LeBronís inconsistent defense helped as well.

    I'd have to verify that on NBA.com

    If you can't comprehend my post due to a forgotten s and a typo in the word "little" I wouldn't be sure who's IQ's on the lower end.

    The guy you circle jerk with said zero as in 0,0 clutch points. Goes to post stats that show he had about 4,5 each season.

    That's for the whole Playoffs... In the Finals, Durant had a total or 3 clutch points but let me verify real quick

    Problem is KD you can't stop him with 2 or even 3 guys and you'd leave the Warriors role players wide open shooting dagger 3s while they shimmy up and down the court with zero pressure as well as KD doing KD as he's unguardable.


    Not sure why it's so complicated. KD= not phased by any defense, Curry gets flustered and is erratic as he's unable to get his shot off.


    Also KD can see over the defense and pass to the open man.. Curry can't and would wind up doing behind the back passes out of bounds. It is what it is.

    If what you said is true why didnít they have KD take the ball up court and play point every play?

    You are falling into the trap I described before. You are taking into account all of KDís tremendous talents but totally overestimating what realistically happens on court. KD had a lot of years in OKC with plenty of talent around him and what did it get him? One Finalsí birth in a lockout season? What happened when we got a decent sample size of the Warriors with no KD rather than no Curry? From the descriptions of KDís game it seems like KD would be fine without Curry but yet thatís not the case. Numbers donít lie, eye test doesnít lie. You are vastly overrating Kevin Durant.

    What language is this? It’s definitely not English.

    Well, low clutch numbers by Lebron aren't really surprising.
