Durant is the better 3 point shooter. end of discussion. Kobe could be great if he got open 3s and waht not, but Durant is just straight up better. And btw Kobe is around his career average for 3 point shooting, so it really isn't that much of an off year, he just had an off stretch, but it still around where it usually is.
Durant's FG% right now is .512% and he started off even better than that. Kobe's great start still wasn't as good as Durant's start nor is it as good as Durant has done so far throughout the season. Kobe's legs give out as the season progresses which usually results in his FG% going down, this has happened like the last 3 or 4 years but it happens every time. He's too old to keep up that type of play.
Nash was playing when Kobe had back to back 14 assist games. You can keep telling me all these stats but they really don't matter, I've watched the majority of the games this year and I know how good Kobe is, he's still not better than Durant. He's 34 and Durant is 24 so it's kind of to be expected that he can't compete with a guy so much younger than him. Let it go.
