Don’t ever compare KD to LeBron if the Warriors lose Game 7 to Houston
While LeBron has been adding to his playoff legend with mythic performances and clutch shots this offseason, Kevin Durant has been all but invisible late in the fourth quarter of two close Western Conference Finals losses to Houston. All while surrounded by a supporting cast of all stars.
Despite the growing contingent of media and fans claiming that Durant had surpassed LeBron as the best overall player in the NBA following Golden State’s Finals win over Cleveland, James’ legendary playoff run has shown KD is still a distant second to The King. If the Warriors lose Game 7 tonight, and Durant continues to be invisible late in the game, Colin doesn’t ever want to hear KD’s name uttered in the same sentence as LeBron, ever again.
LeBron “The Emperor” James
LeBron has continued to build his legend by putting the Cavs franchise on his back and carrying them to his 8th straight NBA Finals appearance. Despite having a supporting cast of throwaways, James continues to dominate the Eastern Conference, and it’s usual suspects.
While James has been known as The King throughout his career, Colin thinks he’s more like an emperor, because he owns all the territories in the Eastern Conference. A King only has his kingdom, but an emperor rules over an empire. LeBron is the latter.
