The torch has finally been passed. Our view of the NBA finals clearly show that when the most dominant player needed to step up for a team victory it was Kevin Durant. Durant scored inside, outside and played very good defense. Durant was an unstoppable force he made the big shots while Lebron James played steady basketball.
Durant’s skills are far superior than Lebron’s I would rate Lebron James as a better passer but since Durant’s play with the Golden State Warriors his passing has improved. The Cleveland Cavaliers have the talent to match the Warriors just to silence the naysayers who say Lebron has no help.
Lebron James is now 3-5 in championship Finals series. This is not a good record for the so-called former greatest player in the world. As for Kevin Durant you take him away from a selfish Russell Westbrook and he turns into a champion.
In order for Kevin Durant to build on his legacy, the coaching staff of the Warriors has to make Durant an even better passer and a less selfish player. If Klay Thompson’s role continues to lessen then teams will back off and do more double teaming.
The torch has been passed right now I would rate Lebron James just below Kevin Durant and Steph Curry.
