"Durant was the best player last season" Yet all Sports Media Outlets had LeBron going into next year as best player AGAIN.... BEFORE Durant's Injury.

From SI to ESPN.... AND in fact InsideHoops aswell.

"But but but consensus" My ass. Sure, in the regular season he was the best. But the gap in postseason was way too big.

LOL using Insidehoops as a source. There are literally hundreds of dubeta alts voting LeBron with 5 points and Durant with 0 points out of spite.

You're dumb as shit.

..... And none in that thread. There's a link, clown, use it.

I know it hurts you.

It's just supposed to show that LeBron is still regarded superior by the majority, weather its a big media outlet, or something like a basketball forum.... Deal with it.

What's worse, an injured Durant who can't play being overshadowed by a young player just entering his peak and currently beasting...

or 4 time MVP Lebron being overshadowed by this guy in the NBA finals:

lebron was better than durant, albeit not by much, evidenced by their postseason play.

Agreed, I don't see Durant ever being the best player in the league. Dude wasn't even the best player on his own team in the playoffs..

Who cares what popular perception is or what media outlets say or predict going into the next season?

Durant was the best player in the world for the vast majority of the regular season. Lebron stepped it up and outdid KD in the playoffs and secured that #1 crown, but to act like Durant at no point last season was playing like the clear-cut #1 is just laughable revisionist history. It just happened earlier year

Lebron last season never had a stretch like what KD did in the winter, especially in January.

Durant=rich man's Kevin Martin

He had his chance to take down Lebron and failed miserably. Stacked team too(Westbrook, Harden) and ended up nearly getting swept.

Last year. KD looked like Russell's sidekick in the playoffs. Dude will never be the face of the NBA.

I almost feel bad for Durant stans, as they will never know what it feels like to have their favorite player unanimously regarded as the best in the world. This will likely be Lebron's last year being regarded as the best, but he has given his fans a great run. 8 years as the undisputed best player on the planet!
I guess the news isn't all bad for KD stans. As Milbuck said, NO ONE outplays Durant in January.
