In a bold proclamation, former NBA player Rashad McCants asserts that Kevin Durant will ultimately be remembered as a superior basketball player to LeBron James.

McCants, speaking on Gil’s Arena, emphasizes that the comparison is for the future, stating, “The real hoopers know that Kevin Durant is gonna go down as a better basketball player than LeBron at the end of the road.”

The discussion delves into the promotional aspects, with McCants highlighting the marketing disparities between Durant, LeBron, and Steph Curry.

“But promotion, you look at Steph [Curry], LeBron and KD. The promotion between Steph and LeBron is [big]. KD is [small]. I don’t know if he’s presentable or marketable. They have more commercials,” McCants said.

With six NBA championships collectively between Durant (two) and James (four), both players have left an indelible mark on the league.

Durant’s impressive career includes averages of 27.3 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 4.3 assists over 1,000 regular-season games.

In contrast, LeBron James, currently at 1,435 career regular-season games, boasts averages of 27.2 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 7.3 assists in 38 minutes per game. Notably, he holds the title of the all-time leading scorer with 39,012 career points.

As these two basketball titans continue to shape the NBA landscape, the debate around their legacies and contributions to the game will persist.
