"Kevin Durant is your NBA scoring leader through one month of basketball, averaging 28.6 points per game. You need a lot of opportunities on the floor to put up that many points, and the more you use possessions, the harder it is to be efficient. So is Durant the most efficient high-usage, high-scoring player?
Of course he’s not. Kevin Durant is forever cursed to live in the shadow of King James. The chart above, by Div Bhansali of the blog Statcenter, shows the usage rate—an estimate of the percentage of a team’s possesions a player “uses” when he’s on the floor—against the true shooting percentage—a shooting efficiency measure that accounts for threes and free throws—for the 25 highest usage players in the NBA this season (min. 240 minutes played, or about 15 minutes per game).

Anonymous asked: I think that MJ big ups Kobe over LeBron for a couple reasons. 1) LBJ has a legit chance of usurping him as the GOAT in a lot of folks' eyes. 2) KB's game mimics MJ's in a lot of aspects, so in MJ's mind it's like some of his success belongs to him and, at the same time, he betters KB in most statistical categories easily so it closes the argument that KB could be better than him.
I don’t think that’s the entire story.
I believe MJ respects Kobe’s demeanor and competitive spirit more than he respects LeBrons. Michael Jordan was a mean,vindictive, surly, egotistical bastard who would slit his mother’s throat on the court. Kobe isn’t exactly like Michael but he’s the closest thing we’ve seen.
LeBron is almost a polar opposite of that. He’s a nice guy, his rivals are his friends, he doesn’t harbor the kind of competitive nastiness that Michael does and I believe Michael Jordan views that as a weakness. Michael can respect LeBron’s talent but I don’t believe Michael respects LeBron’s demeanor.
Michael looks at LeBron the way DMX looks at Drake.
"everyone’s fawning over this soft ass bitch? Are you kidding me?"
Dedicating your life to sports has its disadvantages
The cool thing about playing for the Heat is when you’re LeBron’s teammate and you screw up, nobody gets mad at you for missing a shot or turning the ball over — they get mad at LeBron for passing to you in the first place.
I need everybody to appreciate this smug moment in sports history
LeBron ate this niggas lunch
One of the few instances where Beyonce isn’t the best looking woman in the photo
Carmelo will play second fiddle to LeBron his entire life. He’s Scottie Pippen who just so happens to play for another team.
LeBron is going to die first, but when Carmelo finally dies a few years later, they’re going to excavate Lebron’s casket, put Carmelo’s in the hole, and then put LeBron’s old casket back on top of Carmelo’s and bury all that shit over again.
