Anytime you are mentioned in the same breath as Larry Bird, you are great. Kevin Durant is a great player and one of the few SUPERstars of the league.
He has a problem though and that problem is named LeBron James.
LeBron has hit his prime and has a perfect team behind him to go on a run of championships. Only one person can stop him and that’s KD.
It is easier said than done though and just like with Wilt and Russell or Bird and Magic, in the end those rings no matter how you get them is what sets two great players apart.
The good news is KD seems to understand this and the critics have been very quiet. They were also quiet when LeBron lost his first Finals to the Spurs. It will only last for so long, no matter how nice of a guy Durant appears to be.
He is going to get more chances, but in the immortal words of Jay-Z, he doesn’t want to check his own video and always be #2.
BEST OF MAXIM
Even though the NBA playoffs started this weekend, the basketball topic getting the most publicity right now is 14-year-old Seventh Woods’ mixtape. Woods is a 6’1” freshman guard from Columbia, South Carolina.
First off, props to this kid’s mom for naming him Seventh. That is an awesome name.
Secondly, this kid is an elite athlete. I mean top-notch. And this kid is only a...
After the Miami Heat’s game one victory over the Milwaukee Bucks, LeBron James wore a bizarre sweater to the post game press conference. I guess if you’re the best basketball player in the world you can do stuff like this, but it can’t be recommended. I hope his teammates gave him a lot of grief for wearing this hideous thing.
I’m not judging. I’m just pointing out that LeBron James wears the same type of pants that your wife or girlfriend (or both) does. LeBron took some time to pose for this picture (which was posted to his Facebook page) after the Heat’s Game Two win.
Like I said, I’m not judging. But those pants look much much much better on my wife.

MIAMI LeBron James is in full playoff mode. Well, maybe.
The Miami Heat star said he has given up his cell phone to concentrate on the playoffs. But such a task can be tough in this era.

I can use yours? James...

Russell Westbrook stars in this new “We Are All Watching” ad, the second in the series of 2013 NBA Playoffs commercials – the first one featured LeBron James. In the latest commercial, people all around the world watch Russell Westbrook as he dominates and wins big against the Lakers.
After beating the two during a 3-point contest at practice, LeBron 'Drill Sergeant' James made Ray Allen and Mario Chalmers do 20 pushups each.
To put into context the challenge any team faces in a seven-game series, just take a gander at Miami's regular season results. The Heat lost just four times in their last 41 games dating back to Jan. 27 - with one of those losses coming without LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.
Any team that plans on knocking out the defending NBA champions must find a way to beat them four times...
Carmelo Anthony did it again last night by dropping 34 on the Boston Celtics to lead his team to a 87-71 victory Tuesday night. His performance is just further proof that LeBron James is not the only stud in this league and may not run away with the MVP this year as expected.
I know that voters are only supposed to look at the regular season when deciding their vote, and that...
