James v.s Durant

By: Michael Mcknight

If your a real NBA fan you wonder who is better James or Durant well lets find out and see.

Lebron James one of the greatest basketball players ever to play the game and arguably the best. Lebron came straight out of high school in 2003, because of his great standards of play. When he got to the NBA he got even better and better and improved his game. He learned to shoot better and led his teams to the playoffs multiple times. (Miami Heat and the Cleveland Cavaliers) Meanwhile Kevin Durant also a great NBA player who came out of the university of Texas in his freshmen season and got drafted to the Seattle Supersonics in 2007. Durant was a great player but had to improve his game in his first two seasons.

Durant isn't competitive but his biggest competition is Lebron James. Durant and James have like the same milestones like they have both won MVP. (most valuable player) James has won this award multiple of times in 2009 2010 2012 2013 while Durant has only won it once in 2014. the only thing Lebron has done that Durant hasn't is win a championship he had a shot at winning one in 2012 but lost to the Miami Heat and Lebron James in a five game series. on the other side Lebron James has played in six championships and his record is 2-4. Those teams were the San Antonio Spurs, the Dallas Mavericks, Oklahoma City Thunder and the Golden State Warriors.

Their is no telling who is better because, their style of play is almost about the same but if you look at the comparison in a game against each other they average about the same and their record against each other is 3-12 which Lebron has won. Lebron has also won the battle between points averaging 29.9 points and Durant averaging 29.1 points. In the post season Durant averages 30.6 points while Lebron only averages 28.6 points so Durant won that differential. So their is still no telling who is better maybe until it is all set and done.Kevin Durant is younger than Lebron so Durant will probably achieve things that Lebron has already achieved.

Their is plenty of time to tell who is better they still got at lease ten more years to play against each other and when that all happens we should know who is better.
