It just happened earlier year

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

Who says anything about a Stretch? Who even cares about a damn "stretch" ?

Damn son.

Not only was LeBron better than Durant last season but so was Chris Paul, arguably.

KD was the best player last season. Lebron playing against the Bobcats, old man Nets, and no chemistry Indiana made him look like he is the better player in post season.

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.

Are we talking about the same postseason where OKC met the ****ing Grizzlies in the first round, Clippers in the second round and the eventual champs Spurs in the 3rd round while LeBron played the ****ing Bobcats?

How exactly does that make the dominant 82 game regular season irrelevant? Durant was clearly the best player in the league last season, counting playoffs or not.

I'm pretty sure a "stretch" matters when it's damn near an entire regular season in length

The shorter stretch I was referring to was in the winter, when it wasn't even that debatable, both statistically and visibly on the court.

But all in all he outplayed Lebron for essentially the entire regular season. Acting like that doesn't matter is just you and other Lebron stans rewriting what happened.

I guess the news isn't all bad for KD stans. As Milbuck said, NO ONE outplays Durant in January.

LOL this. AD is going to run away with the best player in the league title in the near future. Poor KD.

Didn't Durant have a stretch with multiple 50 point games last year? I remember he was on fire. It was better than Kobe's 40 point streak or Lebron's 60% FG thing.

well if you compare them with a common opponent "spurs" durant beat em twice. lebron once and then ran away, so... Durant > lebron

And saying that Davis is overshadowing Durant is the dumbest thing ive ever heard. the timing is the pathetic thing.... thats like a wimpy kid saying he can smash a UFC fighter when the UFC fighter has lost 50kg and is lying in bed with cancer.....

He was the best player in the world last year, actually. If he continues his reign for this season still remains to be seen.

Durant > LeBron last year and it wasn't even close. Better in the regular season clearly, beat significantly better opponents in the West in the play offs and did considerably better against us in the WCF than Bran did against us in the Finals. It's not even debatable.

Never change.

Also, negged.

You've devoted your entire time to posting in Lebron James topics and constantly posting negative shit. If anything is sad, its you.

Silk probably does this shit to get a rise out of people, and it works. You on the other hand are truly enraged by the idea of a basketball player being considered the best, you spend your entire time on here trying to tear that image down, as if it matters or something.
