Published on January 29th, 2014 by Astramskas, David | 8,370 views

If you haven’t heard enough comparisons between LeBron and Kevin Durant over the past month, here’s a new one, but atleast it has some fresh data, stats and facts.

ESPN”s Sports Science crew took at the two superstars and the results of their number crunching is pretty interesting. ¬†How about Durant having the wingspan of Roy Hibbert and a release time of half a second on his jumper. How about LeBron being able to reach 20mph on the court, the same speed as Chris Paul, with the ability to throw 40mph passes which is quicker than the average NFL quarterback.

If only science in school was this interesting.
