So, when will the day come when the title pressure will move from LeBron James to Kevin Durant for the Larry O’Brien trophy?
“When I retire,” James replied. “When I retire. They’re still talking about, am I going to win a third? You know…”
Funny thing is according to BleacherReport he was serious when he said that.
“But I think, for him, obviously he’s an unbelievable player,” James said. “And I’m one of the guys that just don’t, I don’t believe that winning a championship defines your career, you know. There’s so many greats that never won, and it’s unfortunate that they didn’t.But I don’t know when he’s gonna start hearing it,” James said of his friend. “I hope he doesn’t. I don’t think he should have to go through that. What he’s been able to do for that city of Oklahoma City, what he’s been able to do for his teammates is amazing. And we’ll just see what happens with it. He’s going to be in contention every year because of the player that he is, and they’ve got a great team. And we’ll see what happens.”
Could it be sooner than later?
