Give Durant prime Shaq and he wins a ring his 2nd season in the league and he is currently going for a 5peat.

Except he and LeBron have pretty even stats through their first five years, only difference being age really. LeBron had slight edges in most categories, and Durant had slight advantages in some.

By that thought pattern LeBron would be the highest no?

This is true but give prime Shaq to any decent shooter and its rings for them too.

He and LeBron have had an almost identical career path through season 6. They've virtually had the same accolades, although Durant has 2 more scoring titles and LeBron has 1 more all star game.

LeBron will probably go down as the better player, but it's impossible to predict right now. If Durant does something like win 3 rings in the next 5 years, he would have GOAT potential.

A few problems..

-kobe came straight out of high school so these comparisons need to include at least a two year buffer period to make the comparisons fair.

-kobe was a deserving nba all first team defender for much of his early career and was a legit lock down one on one and help defender. Durant was and is not.

-kobe was also a much better playmaker/creator.

So while Durant slightly edges kobe in scoring, he overcomes that small disadvantage with his massive ones in play making and defense. It's why Durant can score so much and do it efficiently which equals a higher per, but he can look invisible on the court at times because of his lack of contribution in other areas ex. See last year's finals where the heat easily handled the thunder and Durant very quietly shot the ball well.

0 full years with more assists than turnover.

0 years on first team all NBA defense.

They pretty much do tbh. There are obvious differences like passing (LeBron had more assists in 2 years than Durant in 5), and scoring (Durant is obviously a better scorer), but they're mirrors this far in.

As for saying if Durant wins 3 rings in the next five years he's got GOAT potential, well yeah you could pretty much say that about anyone though lol.

If Blake Griffen were to win 3 titles in the next 5 years he'd have GOAT potential too... Of course if he won the FMVP's, if not then it's moot.

Definitely. But he will be crying on his mother's shoulder every year in the Finals.
