    1. I think last night shows why some ppl think KD is only slightly better than melo. At key times he cant even get the ball let alone get a shot off…he was invisible in the 4th

    2. er: I think last night shows why some ppl think KD is only slightly better than melo. At key times he cant even get the ball let alone get a shot off…he was invisible in the 4th

      Those people are insane, and I’m often in defense of Melo. Durant is like George Gervin good, except a better shooter and defender. Short of injury, Durant has a shot at ranking amonst the best wing scorers of all time. That’s unreal.
