Kevin Durant downplays matchup against LeBron


Everyone that is vaguely following the NBA is salivating over the matchup of the league’s two best players, Kevin Durant and LeBron James. Well, everyone except Kevin Durant.

“One guy vs. another guy,” Durant said. “It’s not going to be a one-on-one match-up. I know everybody here is worrying about the one-on-one match-up but I can’t really control that.”

Dwayne Wade offered his take on the matchup.

“I think it’s going to be a great match-up,” Wade said. “I look forward to seeing what my teammate has going against one of the best players. I’m glad he has that challenge. It’s going to make him focus more. I think it’s going to bring out the best in both of them. I think it’s going to be great for the game.”
