Default Kevin Durant (1x MVP, 2 rings, 2x FMVP) vs Kawhi Leonard (2 rings, 2x FMVP, 2x DPOY)

Who you got all time?

Durant is 30 years old
Kawhi is 27 years old

Pretty close here tbh. Both are killers but damn Kawhi came to play this year

Lebron fans got themselves into a bind

Lebron best an injured and KD less Warriors and they all cheered

In their efforts to discredit KD there was the “KD joined a 73 win team” (while ignoring that the warriors had to gut half of their roster in order to take him on. Losing key depth.

Now Leonard has beaten the injured and KD less Warriors with less help and in more convincing fashion than LeBron....

The LeBron fans now say it’s because the Warriors have no depth....Very interesting considering all talks of depth went out the window during the 17 and 18 stompfests while we heard “it’s not fair, KD joined a 73 win team”

19 is a more legit ring than 16.

All bullshit aside

Leonard is better than KD and Leonard could give Lebron a run for his money

Not fair especially because one man takes the regular season as a training camp while others taking it too seriously.

It's called priorities. Stats or winning?

I'm adjusting my top 15 rankings to include Kawhi, with Durant ahead of him by a hair

I have both over lebron due to superior shooting, the most important skill in basketball, which fits with any teammate or system, thus allowing the best teams

Both Durant and Kawhi would've 3-peated with Wade/Bosh and obviously, Kawhi beat the Warriors easier than lebron did

You need to produce in the Regular Season in order to make the Playoffs and have HCA.

If your thread is about resume, Durant is way ahead of Kawhi, who only won his 2nd thanks to Durant being injured.

You cant just leave out the scoring titles. Those are huge accomplishments.

Currently its KD, but he's finished..

Kawhi is in the prime of his career and could surpass KD eventually.

I'd take 2x Dpoy over 3 scoring titles.

Agree. Also agree that Kawhi isn't done yet.

KD thus far even though I don't take his rings seriously. Kawhi is the bigger difference maker, winning it on non-stacked teams.

KD has ALWAYS been better than Kawhi.

ALWAYS.

Kawhi is great now but highly overrated career wise.

Kawhi has a weak FMVP (14) and an asterisk FMVP (19)

KD got 2 weak/asterisk rings.

Joining a 73-9 doesn't make you the best in the world.
Leading a team with known chokers to a championship is more valuable than anything has had to accomplish in the NBA thus far.

Kawhi joined the 1-seed from the East last year which added DG and Gasol, plus the role players all improved a bit from last year, then Kawhi beat an injury riddled team.

So you could say KD and Kawhi still have things to prove.
