    Superstars are:
    Harden
    Lebron

    All-stars are:
    Durant
    Westbrook
    and the rest of the all-stars trash

    What i considered Superstars are those that can carry their team to the playoffs without any help.
    And to me, only Harden and Lebron can do that ATM.

    Just no, Durant is a super star, it's not even questionable.

    Top 5
    Lebron
    Harden
    Durant
    AD
    Curry

    Russ is a superstar missing half of his brain, so that downgrades him.

    Durant cannot carry this Houston team like Harden. To me, durant will make Capela usless and will not utilize the 3 point shooters.

    Put any D-leager on durant place and GSW will still be top team in the NBA. They break the nba record without him and for some god reason, they choked 3-1 to the cavs...If they were to play again, that wont happen twice.

    Point is durant has never done anything by himself. He has always play with players that are greater than him. Back when he was in OKC, many thought Westbrook was the better player.

    hes done plenty by himself. and you can easily make the argument hes done more than harden bc hes still catching up. your logic doesn't make any sense kid. westbrook the better player by who? idiots that think melo is still a good player too?

    what is it with these westbrook fan club kids. he just got beat by a rookie and rubio. yet hes the 4th best player in the league. what does that tell you about your list.

    What has Harden done "by himself". Durant was an MVP and 4 time scoring champ with OKC. He went just about as far as Harden in the playoffs by himself the year Bev took out Westbrook.

    The supporting casts for both teams were about the same that year.

    This.

    Kawhi was last season. Who knows when or where or how good he will be when he comes back.
    I believe Embiid has the potential to become a superstar. But he isn't there yet and still needs to prove he can stay healthy.
    Giannis is close. But he hasn't made that leap yet.
    CP3 was. But he's taken a second role to Harden which has worked great for him and for us.
    And Westbrook. Geez he should be. If he wasn't so boneheaded and stubborn.

    You take Durant off the Warriors and they don’t beat Houston this season and wouldn’t be favorites next year either. In 70 years of NBA basketball, Durant is #5 all time on the scoring list. He is only .2 points a game from being #3 all time behind MJ and Wilt. That is a superstar.
