Default Kevin Durant is not a better scorer than LeBron... or is he?

I don't know. They're both having great seasons.

Who you think?

It's time to start comparing Durant to the best scorers ever, not just this year. He's been that good.

He's definitely the better shooter but as an overall scorer, it's close. I believe Lebron could lead the league in PPG if he wanted to, but he doesn't, so I'll give the edge to Durant.

I have to say Durant has been the better scorer since 2011 or so.

LeBron is one of the best scorers ever. Only MJ and Wilt have higher career PPG in the regular season, and LBJ is 4th all time in playoffs PPG as well. That said, Durant is a better scorer at this point.

Durant's been a better scorer since 2011 and I would say Durant was a better scorer than Lebron ever was, so yes he is.

I think Durant might be a better scorer than Kobe was.

Durant easily but only because Lebron lets him be. Lebron is a more natural playmaker and will always prefer to let his teammates get shots. but you've seen when LBJ wants to score, GAME 6 Boston 2012, He will score.

lebron only scores after using his massive body to overpower people. once his athleticism falls, his scoring is going to drop big time. Durant won't, he can keep shooting for a longggg time.

I think we will see LeBron continue to cultivate his jumpshooting and evolve his scoring.

I'm kind of on the fence. Most of Durants points have come assisted am I right? Where as Lebron is the primary creator for all of his points. Durant seems more effortless and everything, but Lebron can't really be stopped. I dunno. I can't answer this one.

They're not excuses, they're explanations.

It's not like LeBron needs defending. If he wanted to, he would lead the league in scoring. Period. His approach to the game is simply different.

lebron doesnt have the skills to be the best scorer in the game. im so tired of you clowns calling anyone a great scorer just cause they have high fg%.
