KD is the go to guy when sh*t hits the fan for the thunder. Say what u want about teams winning championships but u look at all the lakers and bulls championship wins and in crunch time Kobe/MJ got the ball and Kobe/MJ delivered. In game 3 he was in foul trouble so I can let that go but not in game 4.
I would rather have my best player score 0 points in the first 3 quarters then win it for them in 4th than kill it for 3 quarters and choke in the 4th.
I won't judge too harshly bc KD still young so he has a lot of room for improvement but it doesn't change the fact that it should be him leading the way in crunch time not Westbrook.
Just b/c Im a 50 year Knicks Fan, Im not going to lie to myself.
Durant is a better player, teammate, and team-leader when compared to Melo.
What kind of person would I be if I lied to myself every mourning I look in the mirror?
If u cant trust yourself....u not goin to trust anyone else....family, friends, or your best NBA player.
I dont recall any OKC player getting stitches for breaking the glass on a Fire Extingusher b/c they were shutout of the offense by Durant performance all season.
Durant stats has ball-movement in every Iso-play....as if Durant is the final option....huge-huge difference when u only look at individual stats and disreguard the team-stats.
KD and it's not even that close.
KD was the second best player in the league this season. Melo was barely top 10. Melo has the potential to be an elite player again next season though. Here's hoping.
