Default Who's the better player KD or Kobe?

I'm going with KD. He does everything better than Kobe and he isn't selfish.



Who y'all got?

Durant's win shares this season are the 21st highest of all-time.

Kobe's best season ranks 97th all-time.

To clarify, that doesn't mean there are 96 players better than Kobe. For example, Michael Jordan had 10 seasons with higher win shares than Kobe's best effort.

So I think Durant's peak (i.e. now) is better than Kobe's peak. However, Kobe clearly had the better career. There's a long way for Durant to go.

If Durant carries his absurd play into the post-season, I'll come back here and answer the question.

But i want to use my brain here instead of just waiting for the results and then getting back to you.

So I'll say that I'm pretty sure that if Durant can put up 32 ppg on .63 TS% and 7 reb and 5 assists per game in the regular season that he can do great in the post season and put up like 30 ppg on .57 TS% and 7 reb and 5 assists per game in the post season. So I'll go with Durant.

Durant and it really isn't even close.


LeBron is better than both of them though.

So I'll say that I'm pretty sure that if Durant can put up 33 ppg on .60 TS% and 7 reb and 5 assists per game in the regular season that he can do great in the post season and put up like 30 ppg on .57 TS% and 7 reb and 5 assists per game in the post season. So I'll go with Durant.

Thought he was averaging 32 7 and 6?

How is it not even close? Do you ever have an objective opinion, or is it that Kobe skull****ed a family member of yours?

Don't understand how it's "not even close" in either direction.
