Lebron will probably still be the best at age 32. The experience factor will make up for loss of athleticism. I just don't see Durant winning championships.

If Durant isn't marketable, then how come he's top 5 in the league in endorsements? And why do people keep putting him in commercials?

Not bad for a player with no personality and isn't very marketable.

I think they get passed over in all honesty. There is always a team that rises up to be a contender. Im not a psychic, obviously. But I really don't see OKC winning any titles. Not hating either. But by the time the LeBron Era is over, there will be other teams looking to contend. OKC is far from dominant. There best player is a huge offensive threat, but not nearly a threat on defense. And there second best player relies 100% on athleticism and is dumber than a bag of hammers. Yea, not seeing any titles for them. Especially with a GM that trades a top 10 player in Harden for magic beans.

Bullshit. That's exactly what you're doing. You just started basically the exact same thread, with the same premise, less than a week ago.

Plus, the Heat can reload in 2014 by taking pay cuts and adding pieces. And by the time those guys are done, who knows which teams will be ready to contend?

Besides, OKC will still probably have Durant, Westbrook, and Ibaka in the heart of their prime; and maybe Reggie Jackson continues to improve, Lamb breaks out, and PJ3 and Steven Adams become good solid role players.

See how easy that is? You're basically just speculating (like I just did) to support your ignorant argument, and think it's fact and the only option.

I have no hate for KD or OKC. Which is one of the reasons why the NBA won't market him as the best player. Simply doesn't have the appeal of a LeBron, Jordan, Kobe, etc. You either loved or hated those guys. Durant is just kind of meh. No one really hates the guy.

Keep telling yourself that. After you make this same thread for a 3rd or 4th time this summer, I'm sure you'll still be saying you're "not hating" on Durant.

d rose is already more popular domestically and internationally than durant is. doesnt really matter about charisma its the game that sells not personality, do you think lebrons douchebagery sells?

Lebron won't be winning all the league titles for the next 10 years. The Thunder could have won the chip this year if the owner hadn't been so cheap and traded Harden.
