This debate is if Kevin Durant is a top three player in the NBA, Here are three players that are better then him

LeBron James: This was a down year for Lebron and many considered it, Right? His averages this year was 27 points per game, 8 rebounds, And 8 assists. Keep in mind the fact that he was dealing with a injury the whole season, As was reported after the season, So just imagine if he never got hurt. Lebron is widely considered the best player in the world, And even though his defense isn't up to par with Kevin Durant, No one can take over a game like Lebron when healthy. He was a mvp candidate all of last year, Carrying a talent depleted Cavs teams all the way to the finals, Which Kevin Durant has never shown the ability to.

Giannis Antetokounmpo: Giannis has had a MVP caliber season and is taking the league by storm. Giannis averages 27 points per game, 12 rebounds, And 5 assists. With the Bucks, They don't have to worry about Giannis getting thrown out of every game like the Warriors do with Kevin Durant, The Bucks also don't have to worry about Giannis leaving in free agency, Like the Warriors do with Kevin Durant. What that proves is that Giannis is much less of a emotional wreck and is much more dependable. Giannis has played the better defense because of his size and pure athleticism compared to Kevin Durant. Giannis by the numbers is a more efficient player then Kevin Durant scoring the ball.

Kawhi Leanord: Kawhi Leonard averages more points, Steals, And rebounds this year then Kevin Durant. If you want one person to have a lock down defensive night, It is going to be Kawhi Leonard who is a former defensive player of the year. Kawhi Leonard also has a higher three point percentage then Kevin Durant and had less turnovers then Durant. Think about this for a moment, Two years ago when the Spurs were obviously less talented then the Warriors with KD, Kawhi had a 23 point lead before halftime in the oracle game 1, I am not here to say they win that series but Kawhi had taken over that game before Zaza ended his season. Kawhi is overall a better defender, And is up to par and even better then Durant scoring wise, And last time they met Kawhi was killing Durant's team head to head.
