Make it quick and simple, I have Durant and am considering offering him for James.

Who is more valuable by seasons end?

It's personal preference. Do you want to build your team around an elite FT% and 3s or elite assists? I'll take Lebron although it's really close. Help: http://forums.rotowo...opic=326369&hl=

Its tough they are so even but I give the edge to LeBron because he is much more capable of getting a triple double on any given night than Durant. Its really a toss up and it depends on team needs.

Depends on who your other players are. If you're short on assists, go with Lebron. If you're poor on %s and 3s, go with Durant.

my opinion is durant. The guys are both absolute studs, so it's kind of like deciding between two girls who are tens, but have different coloured hair (a situation that i have never been in, so I don't know why I'm going to give you advice here).

To me, the main thing is shooting percentages (field goal and FT) here. Durant is much more consistent in this area. I think in the both stat lines they can both go off on any given night for any stat line although, granted, both guys differ on which they generally dabble in (James more on the ast and rebounding side and Durant from three point).

my experience in a head to head league is that the shooting percentage categories are often the deciding factor in a tight match. Because they both have the potential to put up big numbers across the board, I'll take Durant's demonstrated ability to shoot consistently higher percentages any day.

Just one guy's opinion.

...I only noticed the "keep it quick and simple" after I posted. Sorry:

I have Lebron and I admit I'd rather have Durant. Some weeks, Lebron's FT% really hurts me and it's hard to make that stat back up.

True percentage wise Durant wins, those 3's and FT% are just the game winner. I know AST's are hard to come by sometimes too but you can actually tank Dwight's FT% if you have durant + another high volume high % FT shooter.

It's really up to you, but i'd go durant. He's stealing and blocking crazy this season. The man is on a mission

Durant for sure. Not only is he killing in literally every stat line but he is also dishing 4.5 assists this season which has made him a helpful factor on that end as well. At this point Durant is the clear #1 with him helping you on literally every stat. LeBron on the other hand is actually hurting you on FTs
