Durant

I think is well on his way to being one of the most devastating scorers in this league for a long time. Roy is a more do it all type of player who gives you 20 plus everynight. Roy handles the ball better, is the better passer and plays better man to man. With all that said. I see Durant only getting better he is pretty damn young and killing dudes already. I go with KD.

Lol... Don't even get Q started on that again.

They are both talented players, but with completely different games. Roy is better because he has a more complete/do it all/all around game, while Durant is pretty much just a scorer at this point. RIGHT NOW Roy is better.

no the blazers are too young

no the blazers are too young they need a slightly older and more experienced player like Roy. it would help them in the future but hurt them now.

Idk about that... Roy does a

Idk about that... Roy does a lot more than just score. He has a complete game. He can shoot the 3P, mid-range, go off the dribble, play off the ball, catch and shoot, rebound, defend (on the ball, off the ball and in the post) post up and create for his teammates... Roy's game isn't as flashy as Durant's, but he is the real deal. Portland has progessed and won almost 10+ more games every season since Roy was drafted. That's why he's a two-time All-Star.

I think Blake is servicable

but that team needs Roy's ball handling ability and passing skills to keep it from being a one man scoring team. With Durant he would be the scorer who can't set up all the other guys. You need to spread the ball around on offense. Roy is whats best for them now at the current time. No one can create their own shot besides Roy. He is the key to that squad.

lol...how do you gain

lol...how do you gain experience?

you play. I laugh to because you guys keep rating Roy like he has noone around him and his leadership makes them a playoff team.

Durant right now, is a top 10 player. I think he is a superstar 2 day. People forget that

A- After Kobe, the SG spot in the West is weak and that made Roy a 2 time all star

B- Durant should have been a all star last year

C- It took Roy 3 years to lead Portland to the playoffs and he wouldn't have if Outlaw didn't have a good season & Aldridge didn't take another step in the right direction. Not saying Roy does nothing but, Those guys stepped up...dont forget.

dude Durant didnt even lead

dude Durant didnt even lead his team to many wins, sure he has help but you could see especially in the playoff that no one but him and Aldridge were ready to do much scoring and leading that team was experienced last year.

durant isnt a top 10 player

durant isnt a top 10 player right now..maybe after the season but i cant put him top 10..he didnt even make the all star team yet you think this past year he was a top 10 player?..wouldnt that mean he makes first or second team all nba this past year. i mean i like durant more but right now its roy. untill durant can lead his team to alot more wins and or playoffs then i just cant put him above roy. right now roy is the better leader

talent? of course but that

talent? of course but that team was young. and Westbrook and Green are high talent too. dude you realize he won as many games as the Nuggets?

Blake, Batum, Aldridge, Pryzbilla,
vs
Billups, Jones, Martin,
and there benches are close its even debatable hes better than Carmelo as you can see hes a much worse scorer but a better leader.

It's not about potential and

It's not about potential and being tall in this question. If the question was whose the better long-term player, then I'd go Durant but the question was whose the better player. Roy is obviously better, he doesnt do anything worse than Durant except score/shoot the ball. It has nothing to do with leadership really at all to me.

I think Roy is closer to being a top ten player than Durant at this point. This is easy... Long term it's Durant, but right now... It's Roy.

Right now is right now...

Right now is right now... September 16, 2009... 9:42 PM. Roy is better than Durant. I see no reason why this won't be the case after this upcoming season either. One guy will be leading his team and taking his all-around game to the playoffs, while the other guy will be at home watching... Preparing for the lottery again. Durant is an exciting great individual scorer at this point... That's all.

portland wasnt better then denver this past year and i dont think they will be better this year.. even if some may think portland has more talent they dont have a better team. portland had better talent top to bottom then the spurs but the spurs were and still are( esspecially now) the better team

26 points, 6 rebounds and

26 points, 6 rebounds and how many wins? How many playoff appearances? As a matter of fact... What has Durant EVER won, other than individual awards? How many All-Star appearances?

You're right though... He's 20 years old and has the sky is the limit type potential. However, right now in the short term, as in the next 2-3 seasons... Brandon Roy is better.

yeah but we talking about

yeah but we talking about the here and now qhaynes. and in the here and now roy has accomplished more. the mark of a truley elite player is leading youre team to at least the playoffs..now eventually durant will do that i have no doubt. an di actually like durant more. ive never been to fond of roy but i respect talent and always gives props to players that show me. which is why im not quick like most on here to jump on the next best this like a highschooler. anyway durant (in my opinion) will eventually be the better player. and maybe this year he may prove it

If I'm not mistaken, hasn't

If I'm not mistaken, hasn't Durant been listed as a guard/forward the last two seasons? He was eligible to make the All-Star team as a guard or forward.

Regardless... I'm not for those excuses. The fans didn't vote him in as a starter and his peers didn't vote him in as a reserve. There are players who put up great individual numbers on bad teams every year. Look at Al Jefferson last season. If Durant is the superstar and top ten player you say he is, then next season he'll lead his team to at least 10-15 more wins.

Brandon Roy

Although Kevin Durant is a more prolific scorer and has the potential to be one of the great scorers of the game Brandon Roy has a better overall game. The thing that mainly made me choose Roy was his superior Defense it makes me go shamWOW
