I for one never asserted Durant was Westbrooks sidekick. I was just quickly thinking about the competition Lebron faced defensively in regards to the Lakers. Obviously they were all great, but yea the only reason I see Durant getting hate for his performance is probably because people asserted him to be a leading candidate for MVP after that performance, which I didn't see the correlation between that performance and possible MVP.
