I'm not sure what you mean here... How can Durant have NO playoff/big game experience? Does being .4 seconds away from pushing the champs to a game 7 not count as playoff experience?
Congrats, he has 6 games under the belt in the playoffs. That doesn't mean he have big game experience. It doesn't count to me because it was the 1st round. Let's not also forget he didn't dominate any of those games (not the ones I remember) other then game 2 (32 and 8) and game 3 ( 29 and 19)
If your going to compare him to Jordan and Kobe, get it right. Both had big game experience by age 21. Jordan had 3 seasons of college, hitting game winning jumpers as a freshman. Kobe had the terrible experience in Utah but still, he took the big shot even though he missed.
It's a double edged sword. I say let him get the big game experience he doesn't have before he's a top 5 guy. Then you guys would say "He's only 21!". The fact still remains, he didn't have a "big game" yet.
I'm not comparing him to Jordan or Kobe... I'm just saying that he does have playoff experience.
You're saying that he has no playoff experience because you don't count the first round?
I was unaware that the first round was actually a play-in to get to the playoffs.
This is what confuses me: If you take my previous quote, why would you think I'm talking about you? I know you didn't compare him to MJ or Kobe.
It's the first round. That's 6 games he played. Let him get some more games in is all I'm saying.
@churchboy did you really just T-Mac was more skilled then Kobe in his prime
Top 5 or 6, the fact is Durant is a BEAST... He killed at Texas and he is killing in the NBA, when you consider who are the top players in the league you have to ask yourself who would you rather have in a 7 game series... Kobe, Wade, James, Durant, and Paul are the top 5 players who I would want in a 7 game series... I think Durant showed he is a "gamer" when he stepped up and guarded Kobe at the end of the Lakers v Thunder series last year (and he showed potential as a defensive player using his length to make things tough for Kobe).... Durant struggled with his scoring against the Lakers, but he did carry his team against a powerful Lakers team (sometimes you have to throw stats out of the window)... I think Durant showed aganist the Lakers that he is a big game player, but he needs to pay his dues... Jordan was a top 5 player before he started winning championships, but he had to pay his dues...
