Default Durant Overshadowed By Anthony Davis

Like I said, KD will never be the face of the NBA. Davis is already in line to be the face of the league/best player in the near future. Durant once again passed up. Passive-aggressive clown never had a chance.

At least he's living rent free in your head, so he's got that going for him

If Davis keeps playing like this, he has an argument as #1 over Durant.

We never saw Durant's progression from his 32/7/6 season last year though.

Silk so down in the dumps about Cleveland looking like ass early that he has to go to his old standby: bring down a player who hasn't even played this season due to injury.

Never change.

Also, negged.

Durant is being overshadowed by a foot injury. Of course Davis is getting more attention right now, he's actually playing. Stupid topic.

I don't know if Durant will ever be the face of the league... but I sure hope not.

That boy is softer than cotton candy - just like his fans.

Anthony Davis might one day become the best player in the league but it will be as a Tim Duncan type. I know there's a lot of hype around him and deservedly so, but he doesn't strike me as someone booming with personality which is both good and bad. Personality helps in marketing, where Duncan was a bore in. It's good because winning is #1 on his list.

Kobe had both. Lebron was lacking the commitment to winning. Durant is lacking in personality as well as winning, but he is young and has time to. Here's hoping AD when he becomes the face of the league by then will have a charming and winning personality.

It is pretty ugly for the KD diehards.. When LeBron passes the torch, in, 2016? Perhaps... KD ain't gettin' it. Realistically won't have a season as "best player".

Davis will take it from there.

Duncan being boring was also about his style of play not just his personality.

Anthony Davis's style of play is certainly a lot more excititing for the common fan.

LMFAO

Durant was UNDISPUTEDLY the best player in the league last year. What are you going to throw out his regular season and talk about how LeBron made the Finals while Durant choked in the WCF? They lost against the same team, Durant in OT in 6 games. Meanwhile LeBron lost in 5 and his team was blown out by 15+ in all 4 losses.

Durant just wants to serve. He will be happy to have a new master.
