Default Re: T-Mac or Kevin Durant

I dislike watching Durant and the type of calls he gets, but to me, hes simply a better and more productive player.
If we're going to look at their main strengths, its scoring, and Durant does it better.
Both are average defenders, while T-Mac was slightly better early on in his career, he simply stopped trying in Orlando due to the offensive load.

Durant is the better rebounder, and T-Mac the better playmaker/creator. Once again, Durant the better scorer and bigger mismatch.

KD is probably the better player.

This is damn tough... wont even get into it, the only reason i went with KD is because of my acquired taste for pure shooting.

Coming from a huge fan of both players, i'd say that Durant is the better all-around player. It's close tho. The only edge, imo, that T-Mac has over Durant, and probably most perimeter players aside from LeBron, is his playmaking ability.

Hrmm, Tmac was an excellent shooter. He took 6 3's per game during the 03' season which is more than KD has ever taken. He also hit on 39% of them.

In the playoffs you mean? Something like 32-10-6 on 46% FG and 58% TS in the games without Westbrook.

personally, on an aesthetic level, i like kd's game way more. t-mac always seemed like a borderline chucker.....not iverson level, but he definitely had those tendencies. playing on shitty teams might have brought that out in him, i suppose

whaaaaat?

Durant's game is more aesthetically pleasing than TMac's?

It's pretty standard that a Lakers fan would say something so ignorant.

McGrady is in serious contention for most aesthetically pleasing game of all time.

Durant, despite his jumper being absolutely beautiful, is not.

McGrady was so damn smooth that it tricked you into thinking that he was only giving about half effort MOST of the time.

As for the topic at hand, give me McGrady. It's not by a whole lot but enough to make a choice. Both great players.

McGrady was always just on straight up bad teams with mediocre supporting casts AT BEST during his prime in Orlando.

Durant. Dude had a 28 ppg, 50/40/90 season... Pretty close to those numbers again.

But the guy who said Durant has a more aesthetically pleasing game than McGrady needs to be taken out in the back and shot. Sure it's an opinion. So is that Adolf Hitler would have made a great United States President. Doesn't mean it's not a ****ing stupid opinion. Both are equally moronic. Yep.
