The argument over who is the best basketball player on the planet has become more intense during the 2017 National Basketball Association playoffs, largely due to the play of Kevin Durant. Lebron James and Durant’s teammate Stephen Curry have dominated that discussion for the past two years, with James generally getting the nod in overall playing ability and success during the time period. James returned to Cleveland and signed with his home town Cavaliers before last season and led the Cavaliers to the city’s first-ever NBA title. Durant had spent his entire NBA career before this season with the Oklahoma City Thunder and made the jump during the off season of 2016, signing as a free-agent with the Golden State Warriors based in Oakland, California. And, with Game Five of the 2017 Championship set for tonight in Oakland, Durant may be about to capitalize on more than the championship with the Warriors team that has proven to be a blessing for the outspoken Durant.
