Criticisim has followed Lebron James and Carmello Anthony through out their careers, but not Kevin Durrant of OKC.
A year ago the Thunder were in the NBA Finals, this year they are out in the conference semis.
I understand no Russell Westbrook, who is out with a knee injury, and remember the team dealt James Harden to Houston in the off season. So the entire Thunder offense was left up to Durant, who scored just 21 points on 5-of-21 shooting in losing last night to Memphis.
Durrant is getting a pass from the critics, something Lebron never receives and even Mello for that matter.
Durrant had seven turnovers in Wednesday nights loss. He is a combined 4-22 on field-goal attempts with 9 points in the 4th quarter and OT of the last 3 games. Remember when Lebron took an awful Cavs team to the NBA Finals back in 2007.
Durrant is not being criticised because he is likeable, where Lebron is not. Lebron broke up with Cleveland on national tv and is a threat to Michael Jordan. Likeablity can go a long way for an athlete.
As a Knicks fan I honestly believe they will win tonight but lose game six back in Indiana.
