Why is LeBron jealous of KD?

Given his position as the NBA's reigning two-time MVP, double championship winner and arguably the best player in the history of the sport, one would think there is little in basketball that would make LeBron James jealous.

The Miami Heat superstar is, however, unable to prevent the green-eyed monster from consuming him when it comes to analysing the game of fellow Olympic gold medal winner Kevin Durant.

Durant is the offensive leader in the NBA this season with an average of 29.6 points per game for Oklahoma City Thunder. LeBron, though, is back in third - with Knicks star Carmelo Anthony placed second.

LeBron, though, reckons he would be able to nail over 60 points a game were he afforded as many chances to shoot as Durant.

"I do get jealous, I'm not gonna lie," James told ESPN Insider's Tom Haberstroh. "I get jealous sometimes when I look over at KD and he's like 16-for-32 and then 14-for-34. ... Man."

More pressing for LeBron, meanwhile, will be attempting to arrest a mini-slide the Heat have endured of late. The champs have lost their last two games, and will be desperate to not make it three in a row against the Wizards on Thursday.
