And OKC has as good a chance as any West team to go to the Finals.

yeah durant is awesome with his 1 good game followed by five 8-26 performances.

He's averaging 50% FGA so uh, there's that.

KD's stats aside, Dirk has had an incredibly mediocre season so far. He's not even close to Durant's level right now.

he is happy with those stats... because he won the game dude.
i'd rather shoot 2-18 and hit the game winning shot than go 13-15 and lose a heartbreaker.

He isn't averaging 50% right now. Show me evidence because the last 5 games he's been shooting like shit.

Dirk thoroughly outplayed him in both meetings this season.

Thats an average day in the office for Dirk. but why ignore all the other games in which he's been complete shit? Thats what i dislike about durant fanboys.

Better offensively, better post up game. Equal defense Melo has an advantage over Durant because he is bigger. Both proven clutch players. Both went to WCF both lost. Give Melo OKC roster and i guarantee you he will do better than what Durant is doing. Durant does not have a great BBall IQ.

That doesn't make sense. They barely beat a team they were supposed to beat. If he hadn't played so poorly, they would not have been in that situation to begin with. The WIN is what is important, but the rest of the game isn't moot. Makes no sense to disregard everything before hand.

It was a very Iverson-esque statement to make.

OKC has arrived; I know this, because the haters are in full force. No one is saying OKC is perfect, but to say they are overrated is crazy talk.

dirk is a better player than durant. why is that so ridiculous? dirk is arguably one of the 20-15 best players to ever play the game. he has the hardware to prove it. come on. one ring. two finals appearances. three western conference finals. something like 11 50 win seasons in a row. why does he still get disrespected?

dirk is a better shooter and a better post player. his overall offensive game is more heady and refined. he is a better passer and rebounder and in some ways a better defender. he has higher basketball iq.

he hasn't been playing that well this season, but the season is way too young to come to any conclusions. he hasn't been that bad either. got off to a slow start, but he look fine.
