Kevin Durant Ranks Michael Vick
Kevin Durant loves to engage his fans on Twitter.
But often times, the Thunder star likes to avoid basketball talk.
So what did Durant do yesterday?
He showed off his NFL acumen.
It all started when @waldorfsfinest posted his opinion of the top five quarterbacks today. His list, in order, was Michael Vick, Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers and Cam Newton. Three minutes later, Durant blasted the guy for his rankings. It stirred a spirited social media debate between the two about the game’s best quarterbacks, along with their analysis on the skills each player has.
Durant listed his top five QBs as Brady, Manning, Philip Rivers, Rodgers and Drew Brees. He then said Newton is nowhere near the top 10. And like any good sports debate, the player’s stats, awards and accolades quickly entered the discussion as a means of proving or disproving a point. Durant disregarded pro bowl appearances and other achievements such as Vick being the first quarterback to have his own signature shoe (is that accurate?). Durant instead focused on such things as Super Bowl wins, touchdown passes thrown, passing yards and QB rating. He did give Vick credit for being the premier athlete of the bunch and listed the Eagles’ dual threat as No. 8 on his list.
