    As much as I love Lebron, MJ would’ve found a way to STOP KD. Even if he had to stick to his hip the full 48 for 7 games, he woulda did it. Bron had a good team here, with some championship experience, MJ could’ve led them past this Warriors team.

    Klay Thompson, Curry, KD in one team, obviously a massive advantage. The playing grounds were definitely not equal.

    This is not just KD vs NBA, basketball is not a one man game, KD had a much better team, this isn't a right comparison.

    Why doesnt Durant, get as much as recognition as Lebron. He's on the same level?

    Durant looked so good because: he got Klay Green and Iggy having his back on defense. they top tier defensive players! Offensively, how do you guard him when you got 2 of the greatest shooters in the game especially when they always moving. Durant had the most freedom in the world and had sort of pressure on any side on the court. No challenge whatsoever.On the other side, LeBron had to run every play and guard the best player. The dude carrying a crazy amount of weight on his shoulders.

    Lebron was +7 in 46 minutes in game 3. His team was -12 in the two minutes he sat. Durant was +0 in 40 minutes. His team was +5 in the eight minutes he sat. Everyone talks about one shot he made. The reality? I’m not sure golden state even needed him to begin with

    10:56 damn LeBron blamed Jones for that he was like, "Yo where the fuck was you at, nigga?" lol. Anyway this was like they didn't play much D on each other it was weird. Plus I think it was awesome seeing Curry and Kyrie posting up on each other too. Wish I could see more of Lebron and Durant.
