07:53 AM ET 11.19 | Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant is one of the NBA's brightest young stars and one of the most natural scorers in basketball that we have ever seen. The scary thing for Durant's opponents is that the former Texas Longhorns star continues to improve. On Sunday, in a 119-109 win over the Golden State Warriors, Durant reached a new career milestone. Durant recorded the first triple-double of his career with a great all-around performance that goes to show Durant is developing into more than just a brilliant scoring machine. Durant's line on the night was 25 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists. He also added two steals.

Durant is filling up the stats this year. To me he is the best player in the league. His defense is also picking up.

I can second that. He is more consistent than Lebron. He is more of a playmaker now because Harden is gone.

The only thing KD does more consistently than LBJ is shoot. KD is a great player and he is improving as a playmaker, for sure. But LBJ is a better defender, playmaker, rebounder and all around offensive player. There is no way that KD is a better player than LBJ.

KD is a better team-mate and a better person that LBJ will ever be.

His humility along with his talents will take him to greatness.

Now you have all the morons who work for the GPD (Grammar Police Department) telling how Durant is a better player than Lebron and this is largely predicated upon hate and ignorance. You see you have a few in the elite unit CSI (Critically Sucker Interpreters) who more specifically goes on ignorant tantrums and hate filled tirades tryin to correct someone and spewing insults, along with a massive amount of self-centered conceit. Yeah you have these morons identifying themselves as the very best of the GPD and its very elite force CSI, the only problems is no one really gives a $hitt about their rather incomplete and silly investigative techniques......morons I'll say! Apple and I'm out!

hmm...LBJ does A TON of great things for people and communities everywhere he goes. I also have never, ever heard a teammate complain about him. But neither of those things speak to LBJ's or KD's abilities on a basketball court.
