Default How is Durant only 10 pounds lighter than Lebron?

I understand that he is 3 inches taller, but Lebron is built like a tank and Durant is still skinny, to this day.

Am I the only one surprised by this?

Durant carries most of his weight in his groin area

KD is tall. Tall people weigh a lot.

Because if they posted Lebron's real weight, people would think less of him since he has that much more of an advantage due to the lean muscle mass. The NBA doesn't want to take away from their product.

They did the same thing with Shaq, lowering his reported weight to make people think it was closer between him and the next guy than what it really was.

While we are on comparisons, notice how bald Durant is going?

Durant isn't defined, but he isn't a twig anymore:

I remember Lebron and Magic having an interview back in 2007 and Magic asking Bron how much he weighs.

Bron was very sensitive to the question and just said, "lets just say I'm 250+"


Aaron Baynes is definitely a legit 260-265 and Lebron doesn't look much smaller than him.

As Durant hide about his real height the same with Lebron hide his real weight. Lebron at 18-19 was 245. Now more of a 260, with around 265-270 range in Heat. Maybe nowadays Lebron is like at least 15 pounds more than Durant.
