Actually Kevin Durant is better than LeBron right now..

But Kobe still the best player in the league.. In fact, he's better than both of them combine..

He is in the same tier right now. He will be better if Lebron lower his level or Durant improve, which can happen.

Right now? So far in the season? Sure. Whys that so surprising? To me this is how I see it.

First tier: Lebron, Kobe, Durant
Second tier: Melo, Gay, CP3
Third tier: Harden, Wade, Deron

Now when the season wears on, we'll see who stays, who goes. But right now, Kobe, Lebron and Durant are playing on the same level.

Yea Durant is Top 3 in turnovers, scoring less and not really impacting the game with his playmaking. He is in a tier with Kobe but Lebron is clearly above them.

Deron, Gay, Wade over Westbrook, Mayo lol? Kobe and Durant are in their own tier, but Lebron is in his own. Durant has been terrible with his passing and turnovers while scoring less than Lebron, they are not playing at the same level.

In 3 years I expect James to still be the best player in the NBA......... and for Durant to probably be the second best player.
