Gordon Hayward Reveals Who’s Tougher To Guard, LeBron James Or Kevin Durant


Let’s start this with a little throwback!

NBA Finals 2017, Game 3 in Cleveland. The Cleveland Cavaliers lead 113-111 with 47 seconds left in the 4th quarter.

Then, Kevin Durant pulls up for the 3-pointer over LeBron James and makes it. The Cavaliers can’t recover from that dagger and the Warriors take a commanding 3-0 series lead.

You all know how the series ended. The Warriors won the Championship.

In an interview with Zach Baron of QQ, Durant shared his thoughts about this career defying moment and said it felt like LeBron passed that torch.


“That was the best moment I ever had,” Durant told me. “I made the game-winning shot in the finals against my fucking idol. Somebody that I really, really, really followed since I was a ninth-grade high schooler. I felt like he was passing the torch to me.”


While LeBron and KD are the two best players in the league, there is no doubt that LeBron still ranks infront of Durant, even though he just won back to back Finals MVPs. NBA fans just love to compare players.

Gordon Hayward, who has recently been answering fan questions while streaming Fortnite, was asked if LeBron or Durant is tougher to guard. His response was interesting:


“They’re both tough to guard man, for me KD’s always been a little tougher to guard, but like when LeBron just puts his shoulder down, sometimes, it makes it a little difficult”
