I think durant is better. Not by much though. I think lebron has better defense but durant has better offense. To break it down even more, durant gets to the line more thus putting the opposing team in foul trouble quicker. Hes also a better shooter. Spurs have showed what happens when you don't let lebron get to the rim.
He scores 20 and then gets a triple double. Has Durant even had a triple double yet? Durant is the second best player in the league and may go down as better but I don't see it. Scorers are a dime a dozen in the nba, Durant isn't as good a passer, he's been pushed around on defense a lot and has never shown the ability to just take over a torch a quality team in the playoffs.
He's a great player but I just haven't seen the same thing. Durant is dangerous if he gets hot but from what I've seen the last two years he doesn't do well with physical play and if his shot isn't falling he doesn't ever seem to be able to effect the game. LeBron is always a factor even if he's not scoring.
I'm speaking purely playoffs, I haven't seen Durant during the regular season too much.
