Default Has Durant Been Exposed?

We've been hearing so much about how he's one of the top 2 players in the NBA ( ), but has he now been exposed as just a shooter?

Where do you really thinks he ranks among current NBA stars?

Third behind LeBron and DH12.

I think he's had a pretty good series honestly. He's scoring very efficiently.

OKC could very easily be up 3-1, they've just made some stupid mistakes at bad times and the call against him in game 3 was a bad one.

Also Scott Brooks has been outcoached. If anyone's been "exposed" it's been Harden.

Still second.

Exposed of what? He's a pure scorer. Always has been. Nothing new here.

I honestly don't think Durant is a top 5 player. Top 10 for sure.

I think as time goes on, Russell Westbrook will surpass KD, if not already.

Durant's not a good defender.

LOL, maybe Westbrook is better, but there's no way Durant is not a top 5 player.

He is. Easily.

He's had a pretty damn good Finals, when he hasn't been stapled to the bench with fouls to be honest.

You want to see a bad Finals performance, that would be LeBron and Wade last year.

Yup. He just needs to smarten up. Once that happens, he easily surpasses Durant.

I think people overreacted to those series against those 3 over the hill teams. I don't think any of those teams could beat the Pacers. Maybe SAS.

This is how I've always had it, though KD had a better season than Dwight I still think Dwight is better.

I had him as #2 coming in to this series, but would move him to #1 if OKC won the series... but after these first four games, he just doesn't provide much else other than scoring, I think now that other players contribute more overall to their teams such as Kobe, D-Howard, K-Love, Rondo and Chris Paul. Good thing KD has lots of time to improve his defense and rebounding.

The only thing I honestly see with OKC as a whole is

- They're young.

- They sometimes make stupid mistakes.

- Probably need a more veteran coach.

- Durant/Westbrook will get their title soon.

Last year it was simply Dallas' time to win it. They wanted it more badly.

This year, the same is true of Miami. They just want it more because of all the criticism of last year.

OKC is going to learn the same lesson I think.

To be a champion, you first have the taste the bitter pill of defeat.
