Kevin Durant is everything LeBron James wanted to be

He's 23 years old, 4 years LeBron's junior and he's doing things that LeBron could only dream of with the Heat.

I think when it's all said and done, Durant will be the closest thing to Jordan since Jordan, over Kobe and LeBron.

Durant has the maturity, the humbleness, the killer instinct (that LeBron lacks) and he's only 23. It's kind of amazing.

And for anyone who wants to counter here with a pro-Lebron argument, the fact is year after year for the past 9 years LeBron has constantly failed to win a championship. Since he got to the Finals (and swept) in 2007, he's been out in the second round, ECF or last year's Finals every year. And it looks like this year is on the same pace. I'm literally in shock that this is happening to a LeBron that has Wade & Bosh by his side. It's come to a point where it looks like Durant could win it this year at 23 and you have to wonder if LeBron will ever win one.

    I dont know why everyone has to be compared to Jordan tho, I agree he will be better than Bron but even if he wins 5+ rings Kobe will still be the closest thing to Jordan we ever seen, same position, same height, same style, almost the same amount of success but even if he gets 7 rings he wont ever quite be Jordan.

    Niggas can't wait til the Finals start LOL. LeBron still has a chance to change the direction of his (postseason) legacy...starting w/ 2 monster games to get to the Finals. Although I look forward to the ether that would be sent the Heat's way in the IC (ex last years thread) if they lose, they still got a chance

    I know right, that's half the reson lebron gets allot of hate, for not living up to people's expectations.
  • BetaBeta Posts: 63,801 ✭✭✭✭✭
    You do know Lebron went to the finals in his 4th year just like durant right? Even if he got swept, at this point in time hes accomplished just as much as durant.

    Also I wish people would stop making jordan comparisons. I know hes the golden standard but its silly to compare every great player to him or say hes the closest to jordan. And even if durant won 3+ rings he is in no way similar to jordan.

    This is going off the thread title/first 2 sentences of the OP because I aint really read the rest I'll admit.

    He has accomplished more than Durant by getting to the finals twice and loosing on both occasions. Durant and the Thunder lost to the Mavs last year in the WCF. This year they advance to the finals and will be favorites to win it all. If they do that's a scoring title, Finals MVP and a ring in one season which all are greater than Lebron's achievements.

    you have to wonder if LeBron will ever win one.

    i keep telling peole lebron might NOT win a ring at all......i know its hard to imagine this great talent, but karl malone was once a great talent and he thought he was gonna win....barkley thought he was gonna /win......somethings things just dont fall into place which is kinda sad......... and cosign what T/S said about durant....... imagine if okc was LA, NY...durant will be on some severe hero status right now....but okc is a small market so but give him props........

    Durant has to wing da ring b4 ya'll start ethering LBJ, in 2007 this same idea was thought bout Bron til he was swept by spurs

    "The only player who has put in the work and deserves comparison, is Kobe" - Jordan
    "Kobe Bryant has surpassed me as the greatest Laker" - Magic
    "If I want to have fun, I'll play with Lebron. If I want to win, I'm taking Kobe - Bird

    2000-2001 Kobe

    I'll take Durant over Bron at this point. Fuk all that make teamates better shyt, ngga GET BUCKETS.

    Lebron doesnt 'get it'. He's so stuck on 'makie the right play'

    Paul Pierce takes a hero shot, ill-advised, and MAKES it.
    Hrden takes Hero shots, ill-advised, and MAKES it.
    Westbrook had 3 turnovers in a row in Game 5, but still had the guts to take a shot late, and MAKES it.

    Lebron would never do that rather 'make the right play'.
