What the hell?

Durant has little handles. When it comes to isolation play, T-Mac utterly destroys Durant. Plays did not need to be ran for McGrady at all. T-Mac had the speed and handles of a point guard, length of a power forward, and scoring ability of a shooting guard. It was an insane combination of athleticism, skill, and IQ.

Durant is an explosive athlete with amazing IQ. He can draw fouls like no other, but that jumpshot of his is streaky as fu*k. All scoring players are streaky shooters, but T-Mac can play through a slump. Who averages 32 points and 5 a.ssists? Not Durant.

C'mon man.

A prime Vince would quickly fill up the bucket, with a smooth jumper and a bunch of one handed 360's. Y'all forget that his 3 point shot was indistinguishable from Ray Allen's in '01. It's just a shame his prime years were about 2 seasons long.

Durant is a better jump shooter than Tmac...lol actually Tmac was the streaky one lol...Tmac at his peak is better but na his jumpshot isn't as nice as KD's
They virtually shoot the same percentage from the field. The difference between the two is the fact that, Durant is a lot of catch and shoot, alley oops, and quick shots from the iso. T-Mac would literally walk up the court and launch a shot. There's a difference between the way they play.

T-Mac's style forces defenses to commit more resources to defending him.

yes Durant is a more of a run off screens catch and shoot type...T-Mac since in his prime didn't play with a elite playmaker had the ball in his hands alot...Durant get's his point more from the flow of the offense while T-Mac always had to make something happen i prefer Durant play style and is more efficient because of it...and i don't see how your arguing who is the better shooter between Durant and T-Mac imo Durant is clearly the better jump shooter while T-Mac is the better ballhandler and better at attacking the basket.

I don't think Durant is in his prime as yet. But McGrady is in his prime was a better all around player. Durant is a better shooter both from the field and the free throw line. Both are good but not great finishers around the basket. Durant moves better without the ball. McGrady initiates the offense better. All in all I'd say McGrady but Durant isn't in his prime yet.

This is both an interesting question and a really stupid one.

Interesting because they are two of the most unstoppable scorers the NBA has ever seen.

Stupid, because Kevin Durant isn't in his prime yet. Which is kinda scary.

He's gonna be a more athletic Dirk with way better defense... KD is a few years from being the best in the world
Blake Griffin will be better than him

That's some ol barbershop sh*t right there. What T-Mac was doing offensively was just impossible to defend. There's nothing you can do when he just pulls up from anywhere, then decides to drive the next play. Given that, edges out what Kobe was doing defensively. He wasn't putting the lock on n*ggas like Ron Artest.
need I remind you about the 05-06 season Kobe had.. talking about offensively impossible to defend night in and night out.

Durant isn't near his prime but he will have some work to do to acquire that skill set that prime T-Mac had...for those who watched T-Mac during his Magic years knew that he literally did everything for that team and was the complete package on offense and was a way better defender than he was given credit for.

His post-up game was second-to-none at the 2/3 position, his handles and passing ability were exceptional at his position and he could create his shot any where on the court from coming off screens to isolations.

Durant has already proven that he is a scoring machine, but if he can get those handles, passing and post-game right along with being a more physical player then he will be better than T-Mac by miles once he hits his prime and will probably be the best player in basketball by then IF he diversifies his game.
