He had a chance... this playoffs. This was his chance... He blew it. Simple as that. Great regular season performer, glorified Harden in the post-season

This is Durant's chance.

Lebron in 2012 went into Boston and won to save the series and of course the Heat went on to win the Finals.

This is also Paul George's chance too.

Ya, it's time to give Durant a break.

He simply doesn't have the necessary tools to enter LeBron's statosphere. Imo it would be doing KD a service to stop comparing the two. He and his fans should be very pleased with the fact he's pretty much locked up the number 2 spot behind Lebron for the next couple seasons, provided he continues playing at a high level.

The comparisons to Lebron (quality-wise) were irrational at best and severely cringe-inducing at worst. I feel bad for the honest fans who actually bought into notion that KD had become THE guy.

Thankfully for him, he's not THE guy at the moment - the media and fans in general WILL forgive yet another playoff collapse - but their patience is wearing thin ( think Lebron circa 2008-2011).

^^^Give Durant a break? **** that. If fans want to label him the best player in the game, then all the criticism comes with the territory. Simple as that.
