The question year after year we have is who is going to overtake LeBron James as the best basketball player in the world? There have been several guys who have stepped up and played big-time basketball against the King in the Finals.
Whether it's Kawhi Leonard, Steph Curry or Kevin Durant, each of them have had their moments of glory at James' expense.
In an interview with Dan Woike of the LA Times, Durant said, "
Looks like The Best Player on the Planet just won All-Star MVP with 6 of 9 threes and 31 points. Congrats, Kevin Durant.— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) February 18, 2019
However, not being better than anybody, but having nobody be better than him really is impossible to understand from Durant. Is he trying to say that he, LeBron and others are all equally great and should be recognized as such?
Maybe. But, that sort of attitude from Durant seems to have been left behind since he bolted from Oklahoma City two years ago.
