They probably have a minimum games played thing, because they don't include Iggy or Melo who have missed some games.

Melo is averaging exactly 3 apg, same as Durant. Iguodala is a freaking SG, gtfo

Face it man, Durant stunk it up when it truly mattered (in the playoffs).

Rose's first ever playoff game he dropped 36/11, best playoff debut ever. And he's only gonna get better.

Durant in his first playoff series shot 35%.

I'll repeat that: THIRTY FIVE PERCENT!

He was owned badly in those series...Westbrook had to carry that team on his back for them to have any chance

Iguodala a shooting guard? Dude, you'll find absolutely no one that will agree with you on that. Melo was averaging more assists per game when the posts were made. Additionally, Melo is still averaging more assists per game technically if you go into more decimal places, so technically Durant is still behind him.

All of this coming while he had the worst month of his career since his rookie year. By the end of the season Durant will be at 30~ ppg on 52-53 eFG% and this thread will be a joke.

You put Durant on the Grizzlies and they're a 3 or 4 seed right now.


That's a very bold statement, and that's where I believe the Gay vs Durant argument ends. I feel the same way, Durant on the Grizzlies they would be one of the top teams in the West right now record wise. Gay is very talented player though.


That being said give me Derrick Rose because he can pass the ball and score
