Let's say he wins two rings as the guy on his team and gets the finals MVPs, and wins a pair of regular season MVPs, wins at least four more scoring titles, and busts all of Kobe's individual stats.
Would he be considered better than Kobe?
Kobe's first three rings came as Shaq's sidekick in a watered down NBA where the only good teams in the league were Sac town, Dallas, and San Antonio and they got a cakewalk path over a dreadful EC. Would those supersede Durant's hypothetical accomplishments? Remember, Kobe's only got two rings as the guy.
And I think I was pretty conservative with that bar I set for Durant. I think he's actually going to win several MVPs and rings before it's all said and done. I think he'll be remembered as a top ten player in NBA history. He's already too good too young and he's got talent around him and good management at his back. He's grown his game so much already, where's it going to be when he hits his prime? George Gervin meets Larry Bird? That's kind of an ultimate perimeter player.
