Its impressive, and I was ready to hand him the ROY pre allstar break, but since Durant has grown so much over 2 months I cant say that I'd give Horford the award anymore because Durant has been much more impressive. I dont think he should be penalized for playing on a craphole team, hes played better than Horford over the span of the entire year. You also do have to look at their roles on their teams. I think if Durant was on ATL and Horford on SEA this wouldnt even be a discussion because Durant would likely be putting up better shooting %'s and betetr numbers overall whereas Horford would probably be struggling a lot as the #1 guy. Durants just been better this year, I wasnt impressed with him early but Im impressed with him now.
