The Steph Curry vs. Kevin Durant debate is one that ironically began when the two were teammates. Debates about who was more important to their consecutive NBA titles were prevalent in NBA circles, while Golden State Warriors fans were just happy to have both.

NBA and Miami Heat legend Dwayne Wade joined the Dan Patrick show recently to discuss a multitude of topics, with one being this Steph vs. KD debate.

He severely outclassed Durant in their only matchup together so far this season, and while it is still early, this start from Steph has 2016 unanimous MVP vibes written all over it.
