Default Durant's season is really underrated

29/8/5/1/2 on 51/42/91 65 TS%

This is literally one of the 15 greatest regular seasons in NBA history, yet he's in the shadow because LeBron is having a top 5 all time regular season.

For real. If LeBron didn't exist these past couple seasons, he'd have 2 MVP's and probably a ring right now.

Durant's stats vs:

27/8.2/7.3/1/2 on 56/41/75

hmm...

Both are simply absurd.

Yes, it is an amazing season. LeBron also overshadowed Chris Paul and Wade in 2009.

You take LeBron out of the picture and he probably ends up the GOAT based on accolades.

You would be talking about a 24 year old with 3 MVP's, 1 FMVP, and would be considered far and away the best player in the league several years before his prime.

It's amazing how 1 player can change the entire landscape of a players career. Durant will ultimately be in LeBron's position when he's in his prime, as LeBron will be on the downside of his career while noone else will be there to challenge Durant. But no LeBron means Durant would be accumulating accolades that noone his age has ever come close to.

Default Re: Durant's season is really underrated

He is not having a top 15 season and Lebron probably isnt having a top 5 season either. If you cant find 15 more dominant years between Kareems first 12, Jordans first 10, Shaq 94-02, Wilt on Philly, Magic from 87-91, Bird in his prime, and so on...you are just finding ways to act like those years dont count for one reason or another. Thats 40 years of crazy dominance and I left out Russell, Duncan, Moses Maone, and others.

If Drob had his 95 season, Lebron had his 2009, Jordan had his 92, and Shaq had his 2000 Durant and Lebron from right now....might combine for 10 first place votes. Durant likely getting none of them. They are 3 games back of first seed...which wouldnt help. Kareem probably has 2 non MVP seasons before 1978 on as high a level as anyone ever played.

Only way to rank them outside the elite is to pretty much say "It happened in 1973 so....whatever". And once you throw out long periods of time the idea of being top ____ doesnt matter anyway.

Lebron being so dominant.....while having a very good team...in the worse conference...not even having the best record in the league?

Its kinda odd. 14 game win streak so maybe they end up better...not that being on pace for 60-61 wins isnt great.

But I dont know how it compares to leading those Cavs teams to 66 and 61 or so while also putting up "WTF?" numbers.

Really...someone else has that Cavs team and leads them to 66 wins doing usual Lebron numbers while he has his current year....is the Cavs guy not winning MVP?

How would you not give it to him?

Default Re: Durant's season is really underrated

Top 15



We've seen this %'s before. He's not doing anything historic. Just doing it while scoring at a higher pace then Bird did when he did it.



If it weren't for his 14-20 FTA games whenever the Thunder are on national TV, he would just be duplicating Bird's 50/40/90 year.
