Kevin Durant enters the All-Star break as a favorite for NBA MVP, but he'll also have to get through a difficult Western Conference and possibly LeBron James and the Miami Heat to win his first title.

James was asked this week when he expects the pressure on Durant to win a title will shift to him.

"When I retire," James replied. "When I retire. They're still talking about, am I going to win a third? You know..."

James was smiling when making the comment, but also serious.

"But I think, for him, obviously he's an unbelievable player," James said. "And I'm one of the guys that just don't, I don't believe that winning a championship defines your career, you know. There's so many greats that never won, and it's unfortunate that they didn't."

Durant is in his seventh season, which is when Michael Jordan won his first title.

"But I don't know when he's gonna start hearing it," James said of his friend. "I hope he doesn't. I don't think he should have to go through that. What he's been able to do for that city of Oklahoma City, what he's been able to do for his teammates is amazing. And we'll just see what happens with it. He's going to be in contention every year because of the player that he is, and they've got a great team. And we'll see what happens."

I think he is probably right but you never know, KD called him out for some one-on-one action tomorrow night! Huh

I think more along the lines if he doesn't have one by then kind of like the old LeBron no ring jokes.

Well, the King got the better of the Servant in Round 2. Still have KD as my MVP right now though, unless LeBron can ball like his past 5 games for the rest of the season while Durant underperforms.

LeBron is still behind in the race but he has certainly gained ground.
