The Kevin Durant Conundrum...and follow up

Didn't see this posted anywhere and thought some might be interested. This is truehoop blogger Henry Abbot on KD and the Thunder...some interesting stuff here. Basic point is that the Thunder, for whatever reason, are a better team when KD is off the floor, according to the +/- system used. 

KD also had some responses for the article. 

Its hard to argue with the numbers but I think other factors could be at play as well. If KD doesn't play the entire game for a couple of weeks are the Thunder really a better team? Doubtful.
