Right, and he'd still have more help if one of them went down than Durant did after he lost Westbrook (say he lost Noah, Deng and Boozer are better than anyone Durant had left), while probably playing against a worse team than the Grizzlies unless he's playing the Heat; and if they were playing the Heat, they'd get beat.

Seriously, how can you not see how stupid you look?

The difference is LeBron is actually interesting. Whether you like him, hate him, etc. You can't help but talk about him. Durant is half-tick above Rose when it comes to personality/charisma.

And he's still, quite comfortably, the second best player in the NBA. If he continues to improve, and play at this level while still making deep playoff runs, he'll continue to grow in popularity. You may not think he's interesting, but he's doing something right, because he's top 5 in the league in endorsements, and has several commercials constantly playing.

Yea, they are a James Harden away from being a serious title contender.

They won 60 games this year and improved in every offensive category...all without Harden. There's a better than decent chance they're back in the Finals if Westbrook doesn't get hurt.

Funny thing is the NBA would gladly market Durant as the best player in the league if it came to a choice between him and Rose. Rose has absolutely zero charisma. Hell, he doesn't even play when he is 100% healthy.

The will make the Finals because the west is full of soft teams that don't play physical defense, sure. But they will be the new Buffalo Bills of the 90s when its all said and done.

And the funny thing is, Reggie would still be a more marketable player imo. He played in a small market and wasn't a superstar. But the NBA could play the clutch card, trash talk, and his fearless personality.

Sure, except that Reggie Miller was never as good as Durant has been the last 2 years. But other than that, spot-on comparison.
