Chuck too real. He changed the way we play ball. He changed the culture of ball. He is pound for pound the best. He paved the way. I can go on and on. But he’s a legend and I’m just walking the path he created.
For starters, I have never liked these pound for pound comparisons. It's like the kid on the playground who states he would be in the NBA if he were only four inches taller.
Having said that, Iverson was a warrior and I'm a fan but he's the type of player that you will never win a championship with as the focal point of the offense.
In fact, when did any team with a score first point guard win a championship?
This is why I would definitely trade Rondo for Westbrook if I was OKC and I would have pulled the trigger on the Kevin Love for Klay Thompson trade if I were the Warriors.
This is an interesting statement from Durant that also comes at an interesting time.
The window of opportunity for the Thunder's championship hopes is getting smaller by the year and subconsciously maybe Durant is thinking he's a player that doesn't want to be defined by championships like Iverson.
