YouCallIllLose really seems to have some Durantula penor stuck down his throat.
LOL Durant gets the most touch fouls of anyone in the league. When LeBron gets to the line it's because he finds holes in the defense like a running back and trucks his way to the rim initiating the contact. If you so much as breath on Durants frail frame he will be at the line.

LeBron not only puts pu superior and more efficient numbers than Durant, but he also makes more a bigger impact on the defensive end, can rebound better, superior court vision, and is the best fastbreak player in the league. You mad bro?

LOL @ your inability to read.

I think everybody has been lulled to sleep. He's been saving himself all year long if you ask me. I think these last nine games he will be upping those numbers.

lebron doesnt "shoot" 58%, he dunks it. not a bad thing of course but the concept of "shooting" 58% is a completely different thing. thats y he holds better %s than players who rely mostly on their J rather than driving to the basket

That has always been and remains the worst argument in basketball. It isn't better to 'shoot' 58% from the field. It says something about a player's efficiency and basketball IQ if he is finding ways of getting better, easier shots for himself.

58% from the field is 58% from the field, regardless of how the baskets are attained. Shaq wasn't less dominant because he controlled games from inside the paint... Quite the opposite, in fact.

like i said, its not "worse". higher effiency still remains higher efficiency, I was pointing out the difference, cause if a pure "shooter" had 58% that would be even more amazing as in hard to accomplish.

Or the oldest basketball lesson in history "2 points is 2 points."

Watch before talking. For the month he takes 6 jumpers/game from outside 16 feet (the same attempts as Kobe), and another 3 from beyond the arc (compared to Kobe's 4), so he's been "shooting" as much as anybody for his 58%.

So, every player in the league is capable of getting a lot of dunks in a game? Fact is, if it was 'easier,' everyone would be doing it.

Sometimes, shooting a jumpshot is the easiest way out of a possession, not looking for a way to get to the basket and working for a higher percentage shot.

Months are January, February, March, etc. You can't just pick any period of ~30 days of when a player had exceptional stats and call it a "month" You're redefining the meaning of month just for Durant? lol

Lets reroll. 58% in volume is hard to accomplish by any standards, inside, outside w/e. You get to a high % fgma youre a great player regardless of how you did it.

My point is the concept of "he shoots x %" is missleading, because they refer to fgma, and that includes dunks etc. None can drive and make them pay like lebron or be a monster inside like shaq if i use ure example, not taking anything away from them.

BUT

I've yet to see some pure "shooter" score over 50% in volume. Over a long span of time. Its definetely harder to be a good pure shooter and have that fgma than be a good driver/inside pressence and have the same fgma%.

You'd be interested to know that LeBron is shooting 59% from midrange (16-23 feet) in March then.
