I am so impressed with Kevin Durant! He is not afraid to take those three point shots and assist. I am so proud of him and he is such a humble sweetheart.

Lebron can't spend all night running in 2 point shots. Miami needs to step their game up period starting with Lebron. His game last night.........not worthy.
Go OKC!

They need to stop switching then... Because he had him way too much.

But that falls on Spo...

Lebron's reputation is at stake. He can't fall behind a player who's 6 years younger in number of championship rings.

I think when it's all said and done with this generation of NBA players Durant, not Lebron, will be viewed as the Jordan or Kobe of the era.

Durant is longer, has a better outside shot, and doesn't take bad shots. It's not too often you see Durant taking bad shots

Lebron on the otherhand doesn't have as good a outside shot as Durant which is why Durant gets the slight edge and will probably lead his team to their first title

Nobody's reputation is not at stake, OKC clearly has a better starting five and a better bench. As long as James scores and maintains his playoff average he will be fine.

I'm rooting for the Heat.

Durant - better shooter
Lebron - better moves going to basket and better passer

True.

Lebron is at his best when he is attacking and not settling for jumpers.

Let me add that Lebron is also a much better defender than Durant.
