Default Curry is better than Durant

Durant was supposed to be the next in line after Lebron, but amazingly Curry has taken that spot.

Curry's 2016 year was incredible, but I thought it was more of an outlier for Curry and that Durant still might be better. But this season and playoffs have confirmed that Curry is for sure better than Durant overall (factoring in defense as well).

No one saw this coming, especially when Durant won MVP in 2014. It's almost unbelievable since Curry was always a tier below Durant.

Overreaction.

Curry when he is hot is the best offensive player since Jordan, maybe even better than Jordan offensively. But that reward makes his risk greater. As far as minute to minute impact Durant is better since he can always get his shot off and is better defensively. The Warriors are so stacked now, they wont be actually challenged. But if they were you would expect Durant to do better on average in my opinion. Curry is more likely to blow you out.

Durant's been better than Curry for like 4 years straight now, including his MVP seasons.

No he isnt

and youll see why in games 3 and 4 when both games are away and slow paced/halfcourt when Warriors transition isnt as effective

It's not that complicated. Curry is high risk, high reward. KD is lower reward (still very high) with low risk. When both play well, Curry is much better (but that is true of Curry vs pretty much everybody). It is more rare for KD to play badly as he can always rely on his athleticism to get shots off.

When both play well KD is still better since he plays like an All Defense defender at his best along with great offense

His game 3 in Utah when Klay/Steph combined for 6/29 is still the best performance by a Warrior this season. His defense on Gordon and Joe locking them down, protecting rim without Draymond, switching and completely making stupid shots on the other end

KD has higher highs and higher lows. Steph has much lower lows and his highs arent far off but still clearly behind

Lol best offensive player since Jordan...plays for one of the most stacked teams ever, and can only win 1 title and 0 FMVPs (an offensive award). Hahaha
