Green was asked who was better, LeBron James or Kobe Bryant and he answered diplomatically. Kind of.
depends on what category...Kobe is a better scorer, LeBron is better all-around
That's pretty much accepted at this point, what with James having won four of the last five MVPs, the last two Finals MVPs and two titles, but there are still holdouts who maintain that Bryant is the best player in the league based on his scoring ability and reputation. After seeing James up close in a seven-game series, though, hard to imagine Green could come away with any other answer.
Green was also asked who the toughest player in the NBA to defend was, and he responded not with Kobe or LeBron, however.
In my opinion, Kevin Durant...he's 6'11 and moves like a guard, you can't block his shot
This comes on the heels of Raymond Felton calling Carmelo Anthony "the best scorer in the league" earlier this week, so it's kind of an interesting debate. But just from a pure physical standpoint, Durant feels like he's 7 feet tall and can hit from halfcourt. Not exactly a controversial comment from Green. You can defend LeBron, but he's just able to do so much you can't really stop him even if you flummox his jumper or cut off his passing. But trying to stop a guy one-on-one? Durant barely notices defenders.
