Durant's somewhat of a Ray Allen type of scorer, but he's a lot more effective in the paint

How many times is this question or some variation of it going to be asked? The best scorer is the player who can consistently over an extended period of time score the most points the most efficiently. Many people act like having greater range, a prettier looking jump shot, or some cute moves in the post makes you a better scorer.

The objective of a scorer is to put the ball in the goal as many times and as efficiently as possible not to look pretty while doing it. Basketball is not gymnastics. You don't get style points for shooting a fadeway or doing a nice drop step. The box score doesn't read 15 footer or reverse pivot. It reads 2 points. The move made before the shot was released means very little to me. I don't care if a player scores by doing a finger roll, a fade away, a dunk, a layup, the dream shake, a somersault, or by osmosis. As long as the shot goes in.

Having said all of that, IMO considering simply "putting the ball in the basket" it's hard to make a strong case for players such as Durant, Melo, and Dirk over slashers such as Wade or Lebron (who has developed more of a mid range game this season.)

Durant is more efficient than LeBron, I hate to tell you. Well they're basically equal but Durant scores more.

That's funny because he couldn't handle it. That's why he went to Miami, so that he didn't had the pressure to score. Lebron own words.

Miami\Lebron fans are so dumb.

That's only over the past 11-12 games this playoffs. Those numbers change each game. One horrible shooting game by one player and then a very efficient shooting game by the other can change the entire results with such a small sample.

Lebron was much more efficient by all measurements (raw fg% and the advanced stuff such as efg% and TS%) for the entire 82 game season. Also, I find it strange that people who use efg% and TS% ignore other factors that contribute to "how" a player scores such as % ast'd. This season, Durant was assisted on 62% of his field goals which means that over half of his made field goals were the result of someone else creating the shot for him. Lebron on the other hand was assisted on only 32% of his made baskets. This means that he relied on someone else to create a shot for him in less than 1/3 of his made baskets, and he yet scored more efficiently from the floor than Durant.
