Re: Durant now or Wade in '09?
Durant is the better scorer due to his shooting ability from everywhere, length and ability without the ball, but not that much due to Wade's ability off the dribble, explosiveness at the rim and because his mid-range game was great all season. Lets not forget Wade averaged 34/5/8 on 51/37/81 shooting after the all-star break that year.
As overall players, the advantage clearly shifts in Wade's favor. Durant has rebounding, but Wade was a vastly superior passer and playmaker despite Durant's improvements and definitely the better defender. Those gaps outweigh any advantage Durant has as a scorer.
