Based on what? It doesnt get more clutch than game 5 vs the Detroit in the ECF or his shot game 2 against Orlando, or last year vs Chicago. So what has Durant done besides that ugly as luck shot Saturday?

I was talking about Lebron's TWO epic Finals failures.
As for Durant, maybe we will see what he can do when it matters most. He has proven to be clutch, but hasn't been to the Finals yet.

So one person is a choke artist because he advances farther than the person who is supposed to be clutch and that is supposed to be used against him

corrected for full retard.

2007 finals aint an EPIC failure like Kobe's in 2004 & 2008 as being heavy favorites.

nice try btw.

2007 Cavs-lebron trip to finals itself was a huge accomplishment for Cleveland franchise. as Cavs were correctly & rightfully were severe underdogs to Spurs.

LBJ had 1 epic Finals failure in 2011 compared to Kobe's 2 epic failures in 2004 & 2008.

case closed.

Well if you have Chris Paul on your team, you are better off taking Durant as your SF than Lebron.

LeBron scored 8 points in a Finals game.







Enough said.

Durant has shown that he is not the same player as Lebron....he wants the pressure ....


I'll roll my dice with Kevin thank you very much..

Taking long contested 3s makes Durant the king in pressure situation?

When LeBron learns to be as versatile in the offense as KD, and when he makes up for his epic choke jobs in the finals, i'll pick him over Durant.

the only people who would take Durant over Lebron are either very bitter haters or simply delusional OKC fans. Bron trumps that jumpshooter in everything - scoring efficiency, all-arround impact and teamplay too.

and Durant didnt choke in that WCFs when the Thunder were up by 10 with like 2 minutes to go in game 4?

Nice to hear that Durant choked before reaching the Finals

Is this the new strategy to deny Lebron epic choke jobs?
Bring up minor ones by others?
First of all OKC were up by 5, not 10. Secondly, if you had actually watched that game you'd remember that it was Westbrook, not Durant, who kept missing shots in the final minutes. True, KD missed a potential 3pt game winner.
But I guess that's worse than averaging less than 3 points in the Finals 4th quarters

Durant is not even a top-3 player in the league. Lebron, Wade, and CP3 are all better than Durant. I would have put Dwight in that group had he not been a bitch this season.
