    KD hate should be over by now, just get the hell over it and move on to Demarcus.

    19

    Why though? Just because it's been a while doesn't mean he should be excused from what he did.

    He shouldn't, when considering legacy, this will be a major arguing point. But we shouldn't be calling him snake under 2kmtc comments like 11 year olds

    Still at 6 foot 9. He is probably 6-11, 7-0.

    I just wish teams were held to the same "loyalty" standard that players are.

    1

    Fax if teams want their players to stay loyal, they should be loyal to their players

    2

    For real.

    When a team acts disloyal "It's a business, what do you expect?"

    When a player acts disloyal "How could he do that?! Snake!!" What happened to it being a business though?...

    Well if u think Bron 2nd

    Bron has passing and rebounding (barely) on him

    KD has scoring, success (recently), shooting, defense by a mile, and shot blocking on him

    0

    who's him? Are you talking bout LBJ

    -1

    Yes read the whole thing. LeBron really only has passing and rebounding. KD went to Golden State, which is a bitch move and really pissed me off, and I hate him for it, but he went to Golden State, and he wasn’t carried, he won both rings as the Finals MVP and the clear best player on the team both times and the best player in the Finals both times, absolutely cooking LeBron I’m both Finals.

    1

    Lebron averaged more points, assist, and rebounds than Kd in both finals

    0

    That’s because he took more shots. Also KD wasn’t the primary defender on Bron. And oh, who allowed the basically series Enders two years in a row to the new king? KD...

    1

    He didn't do it by himself. Usually to end any series when you have 3 and now 4 other all stars besides you

    He was the clear best player and most games were close, without him Warriors would have lost in 2017 and 2018

    KD is better, the same way Bron better than Jordan, but Kobe is GREATER

    -1

    by far way more skilled, a way better scorer, I also give him playmaking. That is already offense, defense is close, but imo Kobe is an overrated defender, and while KD isnt the best on defense either, he is improving, as a rim protector and an overall defender

    0

    Kobe averaged 35 in a season so tell me how he is a better scorer. Playmaking sure and kobe is a 9 time all-defensive first team, ur just saying he's overrated on D to make ur argument seem better

    1

    on 45% lol

    -1

    KD averaged 32 in a season, led the league in scoring numerous times, hit the 50-40-90 mark for a season, came close to it many times, and even averaged 25 on 55% shooting for a season. In his 6 year prime, he was averaging 28 points on high efficiency. Overall, KD knocks Kobe out in PPG, FG%, 3PT%, and FT%. And I call Kobe an overrated defender because of his lack of consistency. His defensive peak was in the early 2000s where I will admit he was a great defender and deserved his selections, this was the time when Shaq was there and he didn't have to carry as much of a load on offense as he did in the mid 2000s, anyways, later on, he started to play less well on defense, and didn't have all defensive games as commonly as he used to. Phil Jackson actually admitted that Kobe didn't play defense in 2006, which was his offensive peak. At that point, his all defensive teams were less because of his actual capability, but his reputation from earlier years. I'm not necessarily giving KD an edge, but it's definitely closer than people would claim to it being. KD is a great rim protector by far, and was allowing players he defended one on one to a pretty low %. Just from the logic that I displayed, KD is better on offense, and close if not as good as Kobe on defense. Next, I would like to look at some advanced stats. Kevin Durant has a higher PER, which mainly focuses on offense. His PER is 25.3, to Kobe's 22.9, Kobe's best PER for a season was 28 in 2006, while KD's best season PER wise was 29.8, and he had 3 seasons better than Kobe's best in that metric. Next is TS%, Kobe's TS is 55%, while KD's is 61.1%, Kobe's best TS for a season is 58%, which KD has done better in for every season except his first 2 seasons. KD actually has a lower USG rate which means that he is more productive for his teams with the ball in his hands less. His WS/48 is .219, which almost matches Kobe's BEST for a season which is .224, KD has done better than that for a season 7 times. KD's Box +/- is higher by 1.2. With higher DBPM and OBPM. Kobe's VORP is 20 higher, but according to the number of games KD has played compared to Kobe, KD's amount of VORP, around 50, is way better than Kobe's career VORP of 70 on almost 2 times as many games. Overall, I think KD is by far the better player overall, but maybe not the greater player yet.

    0

    Also of course Kobe didn't play as much D when dropping 35 a night, the guy isn't superman. Look at Lebron this year, he was no doubt the best player in the league but he didn't play defence

    -1

    My point is that overall that Kobe isn't a consistent defender, as his best years as a defender were only around 4 years, and he didn't deserve a lot of the selections he got. Also, may I mention that LeBron is nowhere near his peak with this season, his peak was in 2013 and 2009, where he was actually known for good defense

    0

    I said nothing about anyone's peak so that whole argument means nothing. I'm saying that when you need to carry a load that heavy on offence, like Bron and Kobe, your defence is gonna take a dip. Why do you think KD is all of a sudden playing better D, he has 3 other all-stars to help out on offence, now 4.

    0

    Yeh that's coz Kd has always played with another star and for the past couple years he's played with 2 guys who drop over 20 a game. Kobe played with Shaq, that was his last star. Pau was good but without kobe that team isn't nearly as good. Kobe's %'s aren't as good because of the loads he's had to carry. And KD hasn't proved that he can win a ring under similar circumstances to what Kobe had. You keep bringing up all these stats like they tell the whole story, you looking up some stats on basketball reference doesn't mean u understand basketball. Stop fronting like ur some basketball genius

    -1

    You are using the argument that Kobe had a larger load to carry, but for some reason, KD averages more shots per game for his career AND shoots better in every metric, that isn't supposed to happen if that was the sole reason, it goes to a point where that's not even the case anymore. And he played with Shaq, a top 5 player of all time, and that's the main reason he has 5 rings instead of 2. He didn't have to carry as much of a load the, but he still shot abysmal, with 45-33-83 splits. By far, using this simple argument won't dismiss the %s. I thought that Kobe was only shooting worse because he was carrying a huge load though. And since you mention the Finals, let's actually take a look at those. Kobe was averaging 32 points on 43% shooting lmao. Pau was playing excellent that series, averaging 19 points, and 9 rebounds on 60% shooting. Lamar was putting up 13 and 8 on 54% shooting. While Kobe was shooting 43% from the field in those Finals, his team was shooting 47% from the field. Oh yeah and the team they were facing that year, the Magic were shooting under 43% from the field. And the next year, they faced the Celtics who shot 43% from the field as well. Also, Kobe shot 40% from the field that year, while the rest of his team was shooting 42.3%. Also if I'm not mistaken, KD led his team to the Finals in 2012. If you don't count him, his team shot a horrible 42.3% from the field. And KD also had 30.6 PPG on 55-39-84 splits, which is extremely good. They would have won that series if they were facing any team not named the 2010s HEAT, the team with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh. Overall, I feel that this argument fails when you consider the logistics. Advanced stats definitely don't tell the whole story, but if Kobe is being crushed by KD in every single advanced stat, there is an indication there. You proceed to spend the next 2 sentences being jealous of how much I know about basketball, so I guess I'm going to ignore that.

    Ok so you didn't bring up the fact that KD had better teammates throughout his championship runs, you actually made it worse for yourself coz you made the argument that Pau and Odom played "excellent" when neither of them averaged over 20 points. You also said the KD averages more shots over his career, you should probably fact check that. KD averages 18.8 shots a game over his career whereas Kobe averages 19.5. So nice one there bud. And that's including the fact that Kobe wasn't expected to do anything in his rookie year which is why he went pick 13. So for his rookie year he averaged 5.9 shots a game compared to KD's 17.1, giving him a big advantage, in fact Kobe didn't reach the 17 mark until his 4th season putting it into perspective. Plus, Kobe has stats from after his prime whereas KD is in his prime right now and hasn't experienced the ageing process so don't even bother bringing up career averages anymore. You also say it's coz of Shaq that Kobe has 5 instead of 2. Althought that may be true 2>0 and KD would have none without Curry, Klay and Draymond so that's a dead argument. And at the end you claim I'm "jealous" of ur knowledge, don't even try to tell me that you know all those stats. You know damn well that you looked them up, so therefore I'm not jealous of YOUR knowledge coz it's not YOUR knowledge.

    -1

    1. They played excellent cause they were both extremely efficient and were playing their roles exactly as they should have, you also read Kobe's supporting cast shot 47% from the field in 2009, compared to KD's cast in 2012 shooting 42%
    2. I'm also sorry for the incorrect facts, and also doesn't the fact that Kobe doesn't take 17 shots per game until his 4th mean he should be more efficient in at least 1 of those years.
    3. You have a point, but I feel we are getting a bit off topic, because my original claim was that KD was the better player, while Kobe was greater, if you are considering that "better" aspect, KD's 2 finals were both better than Kobe's 2 finals.

    0

    Ok so I'm pretty much done with this now, it's been good whilst it lasted, my final rebuttle:
    1. You're comparing a 2009 team that won the championship with a 2012 team that didn't so I don't really think that you can use that as an argument. My point was comparing their respective teams when they WON the title.
    2. No because wasn't given the opportunity to play how he wanted in his earlier years due to his low expectations. Hence, he wasn't playing to his strengths.
    3. KD's 2 finals may have looked better on paper but once again this is due to their respective teams, KD was one of 3 lethal options the D had to worry about compared to Kobe being the only lethal option on offence for the lakers. (I don't consider Pau anywhere near a lethal option)

    1. This doesn't prove that Kobe is a better player

    post offense?

    0

    KD is also extremely capable as a post scorer, although maybe not as good as Kobe, he is overall a more efficient shooter and scorer overall, his %s are pretty insane compared to how many shots he takes a game, and overall I'd take him over Kobe to score 20 in a game on at least 50% shooting
