UPDATE: The Cleveland Cavaliers announced that LeBron James will not take the court against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday.

Earlier this week, reports surfaced saying James was suffering from general soreness in his left knee.

Coaches said it would be a game-time decision whether 'The King' would play.

However, it was announced just after 5:30 p.m. that James will be sitting on the bench.

 

OKLAHOMA CITY - It's MVP versus MVP.

When it comes to Kevin Durant and LeBron James, their skills on the court are legendary.

"Durant's a little taller, lankier and skinnier with the long arms," said one passerby in Bricktown. "LeBron's a little shorter, little bulkier but they're both excellent players."

However, how do the two stack up off the court?

Surprisingly, they are very similar.

They have both been NBA stars in two different cities.

KD's stint in Seattle was short-lived but his time in Oklahoma City has been memorable.

LeBron's journey from Cleveland to Miami, and back, has been well-chronicled.

The two stars currently have homes on the market.

LeBron James' estate in Miami is reportedly listed for $17 million, while KD's former abode in Gaillardia is reportedly listed near $2 million.

Both have been featured on the cover of the NBA 2K video game series, and Durant's favorite player may just surprise you.

During an interview on NBC's 'The Tonight Show,' a sheepish Durant admitted to Jimmy Fallon his go-to player in video games is......LeBron.

These MVPs are also valuable assets in the kitchen.

'KD's Southern Cuisine' has been open in Bricktown for more than a year.

'Blaze Pizza', which is affiliated with LeBron James, is in the process of opening new locations in Florida, according to the South Florida Business Journal.

An article by Forbes shows that LeBron James' and Kevin Durant's line of sneakers are first and second in sales among active NBA players.

While LeBron's nickname may be 'The King,' you don't have to look far before it becomes crystal clear.

Thursday night, he'll be stepping into Durant's domain.

However, the anticipated matchup may not happen on Thursday.

Reports indicate LeBron was feeling sore before practice and whether he will take the court or not will be a game-time decision.
