One quick move: 2-18
This one I have hesitated to give out, because this guy is one of the crown jewels of my portfolio. Kevin Durant at 65 dollars. I have more money invested in Durant than anyone on the market except for Lebron James, and Matt Stafford. He is a huge key to my plans in Jockbrokers. Mostly due to Durant having a major injury in 14-15, I feel his value has not reached anywhere near where it should be. In fact, I think Durant is undervalued up to $100. Some of you might be shaking your head at that, but lets put it into context.
He JUST turned 27, and is halfway though his 9th season. Lets compare him to the crown jewel of the NBA, Lebron through his age 27 season. Keep in mind, KD has the rest of this season still to catch up.
Points: Lebron 19045 KD:16839
3pts: Lebron 917 KD 1072
Rebounds: Lebron 4932 KD 4302
Blocks: Lebron 582 KD 610
Lebron kills KD in steals and assists, so we won’t worry about that. But you can see, he is right up there with James in 4 major categories, beating him in several in fact. Another thing to keep in mind with KD, is he shoots as good as lebron or better as well. KD is a better free throw shooter by a mile, slightly worse in FG% and has a way better TS%. KD to me, is Lebron without the price tag.
How about another guy selling for 60 bucks- James Harden. James Harden I think is a pretty solid buy at that price, which is what makes KD so great. Harden came out when he was 20, KD at 19- so that alone gives KD a massive advantage. However, lets compare Harden vs KD’s first 7 seasons.
Points: Harden:10428 KD: 14851
3pts: Harden 1039 KD 893
Rebounds: Harden 2282 KD 3751
Blocks: Harden 222 KD 529
KD takes 3 of the 4 categories. He does lose again in steals and assists, but not by a ton. Again, KD compares well shooting, posting better FG%’s, FT’s and a virtual tie in TS%. In theory, if you thought Harden selling at 60 was a great buy, you should jump all over KD at 65.
For me, Durant is the best buy on the market right now, regardless of price.
