Default LeBron has already played 35k minutes

and by the end of the season that career total should be somewhere around 37000(playoffs+regular season)

Kobe started breaking down in 09-10, when he was around 42000 career minutes. He really fell off the next year when he was at 45000~

So you can probably expect LeBron to have around 2 more seasons at his current level, 1 with a slight drop off, and then 1 where be begins a steep decline

LeBron's decline is the only way Durant can become the clearcut best player in the NBA. the agenda is quite obvious

Considering Lebron is better than ever and he's 28 now, he probably won't start to slip at all until 30-31, but maintaining his current level after that is a huge stretch. That's usually when players start to slip a bit from their prime level anyway, but still remain close to it for at least a couple of years.

It'll be interesting to see how Lebron ages compared to Kobe. Kobe has always looked much more fluid than Lebron and been more skilled, plus he's always been a hell of lighter, he maxed out at 225-230 a couple of seasons('03 and '05) but has been in the 210-215 range for the most part and dropped down to 200 in '08 to take pressure off his knees. Lebron was heavier at 18(245) than Kobe ever was and has been 265-270 for about 5 seasons now. But Kobe had 2 knee surgeries by age 28 while Lebron has shockingly been injury free so that works in his favor.

Durant has already played 14k minutes, and by the end of the season that career total should be somewhere around 16000

Steve Francis started breaking down in 05-06 when he was around 18000 career minutes. He really fell off the next year when he was at 20000~

So you can probably expect Durant to have around 2 more seasons at his current level, 1 with a slight drop off, and then 1 where he begins a steep decline

This is the thread where we are drawing conclusions from two arbitrary players and their minutes played, right?

Kobe and Lebron are built very differently. Lebron is way more durable and Kobe has had knee surgeries. Plural.

Lebron's athletic prime will be much longer than Kobe's, or it should be. He's been healthy his entire career.
