The NBA All-Star game will use a new team format this season. Usually, the format is East V. West. In order to create more competition during the game, they have adopted a newer format. The top two most fan voted players are team captains, and they will draft their team. They must start with the other 8 starters as they draft teammates.
In 2012, Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, and James Harden would all make it to the NBA Finals to face LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, and Chris Bosh. The Miami Heat would then go on to win that finals series, 4-1. James would then go on to appear in five more NBA Finals to Durant’s one. Many will try to argue that Durant is better than James after the 2017 NBA Finals, where a stacked Warriors team beat a stacked Cavaliers team. Many will try to use stats to tell you that Durant is better than James. Many would tell you that James would’ve had a 1-4 record in the Finals had he never went to South Beach. Many would tell you that James made a model that Durant is just following. When it comes down to it, is the Kevin Durant v. LeBron James argument really a debate though?
