After game 6 I thought he was overrated?

After game 7 he's the best scorer in the league?

I love ISH

Durant is NOT a dominant scorer. As has already been said, he cannot face someone down in tight coverage and just take them at will. The vast majority of his points come from someone feeding him in a catch and shoot situation.

A dominant scorer is someone like Bernard King, where it doesn't matter who you put on him, in whatever circumstance, he can score in volume. Durant's scoring is all derivative.

Effective, yet. Dominant, no.

Durant is one of the best scorers, not the best scorer. I'd take Melo scoring over him.

What the hell is TS%?

I'd take Dirk because of his mid-range.

Is this opinion based on points per game? I don't deny that Durant is a fantastic scorer, but you can't make this kind of declaration without taking into consideration how many shot attempts a player is taking, whether they are deferring to other legit scoring threats on their team, etc.

Durant scores more points on less shot attempts than Carmelo in the regular season and the playoffs. Yes go ahead and take Carmelo while every non-Knicks homer/Durant hater laughs at you

TS% is some made up bullshit stat heads want us to consider. If a guy shoots 5/10, his fg % is 50 but his TS% is like 89.5485% or something like that.

Durant scored 40 pts on 25 shots, whereas Lebron scored 15 points on 15 shots. that's over double the effeciency of Lebron.

He is the most productive scorer, but he isn't the most polished or most versatile scorer. There is a difference.

imo best scorer in the league with nowitzki. almost impossible to guard. funny thing about him is unlike players like lebron - wade - rose etc... he might get better as he gets older since he doesnt get the job done with his athleticism. he might break some (scoring) records in the future too.
