Default What makes Kevin Durant better than Derrick Rose?

I see on all these people's list Kevin Durant listed as a top 5 player. What's with this BS?

Do you think it would be that hard for Rose to average 28 ppg if all he did was jack up shots?

What's harder to do, score 28 ppg and average 3 apg or score 24 ppg and average 8 apg? You really think if Rose focused as little on getting others involved as Durant does that he couldn't average a pitiful assist total and score a whole lot more?

And please don't tell me Durant is a good defender. Last I checked he was starting for the 16th ranked defense in the league. Rose starts for the #1 ranked defense.

And please don't bring up shooting. How is Durant a better shooter? is shooting 32% from three somehow better than shooting 38% from three?

Enough with the jockriding of Kevin Durant. Overrated as they come.....

If Rose sustains his play for the rest of the season, he is in the top 5 for me. Durant is playing like bullsh*t

Depends on how you judge players

theyre both mostly scorers .. and Durant is just way better at it.

Watch FIBA last year .. when you see guys as teammates in competitive games it gives you better perspective .. and Durant was clearly head and shoulders the leader and best player on that team.

Kinda hard to get assists when you have a PG like Russell Westbrook on your team.
