That’s only been amplified with the career of LeBron James cresting at its highest point, as well as Kevin Durant earning the recognition of challenging for MVP.

Is there anything more attention grabbing than an individual battle between two Hall of Fame-bound players?

We were subject to it a few weeks ago when LeBron James and Kevin Durant went at it in Oklahoma City’s win over the Miami Heat. While the result is indicative of a lopsided affair favoring the Thunder, the battle between James and Durant was anything but as both players went for each other’s throat on one long-distance shot after another.
