    Default Stirring the Pot - Bosh vs. Durant

    Bosh & Durant were named NBA (East & West) players of the week.

    http://www.nba.com/2010/news/04/05/p...s=iref:nbahpt2


    Wondered how RR readers feel about the two players in terms of preferring one or the other on the Raptors. Of course this would not happen but serves the purpose of comparing Bosh to a peer receiving the same accolade this week.

    Would Durant have a larger impact on the Raptors than Bosh? Which player brings more to the table in terms of making other teammates better or provides greater leadership or is more likely to be a game changer.

    Both obviously pretty good....but....who would be better taking the Raptors forward?

    Durant is better than Bosh. He's in the west and isn't struggling to make it to the post season.

    Sign and trade - Bosh for D. Lee would be good for the Raptors

    Ya I agree with OzRapFan. No way can you compare the two guys. The way the team is structured right now though? I'd say Bosh is more suited to the team because if we simply switched Bosh for Durant we would have to start Amir, Reggie, or Rasho. Also, that would mean that we have another guy on the team that needs the ball in his hands to be effective.

    I realize they play diff. positions. As players who won their respective conf. player of the week...who would Raptor fans rather have...comparing all of their tangibles and intangibles.

    I appreciate the nature of the post, they both had good weeks, but a more realistic question would be would you rather have any other player in the history of the NBA over Durant right now. He's 21, still scratching the surface of his talent and possesses the kind of game usually reserved for guys 6-2.

    Jordan had a great career and was blessed with an insane work ethic, but he wasn't even close to this good at 21. Lebron might have a better body and overall game, but he's 25, 7 years in the league and still can't shoot as well as KD. The kids entire history is still to be written and he could theoretically end up without a title, but i'd argue hes the best 21 year old to ever play the game.

    I wouldn't trade his future for any other players past, but that's me.
