"I'm going to take LeBron James," he said. "I think he's the best player in the league, in the world. I think Kevin Durant is proving that he is going to dominate this league for a long time, as well, but right now I'm taking LeBron James."
"LeBron James is better because he's smarter," he said of the growth in James' game. "He added to his game a post up game, which has made him unguardable, and also made him, even when you double-team him, and we saw this in Game 4, he was able to make all his teammates better by taking the double-team and kicking it out for easy jump shots or 3-point shots.
"Before, my biggest knock on LeBron was he was just playing off his God-gifted talent. He was just the best athlete. But he didn't play with his head to match that. Now he's playing with his talent and with his head, and wow, watch out. This guy is going to set the league on fire for a long time."
