Von Miller claims he’s the Kevin Durant of the NFL; reveals he has a burner account

Von Miller thinks he is the Kevin Durant of the NFL. That might be true, but his choice for the LeBron James of the NFL is wrong.

Kevin Durant and Von Miller

At first glance, you wouldn't say Von Miller is the Kevin Durant of the NFL. The 6'3'', 250 lbs linebacker is a defensive menace, the complete opposite of the 6'10'' (7'00'' if he's talking to women) 240 lbs lethal scorer. But according to Miller, this is where the differences end. 

Kevin Durant's similarities with Von Miller

Von Miller thinks his counterpart is NBA scorer Kevin Durant. The outside linebacker is a defensive team member, while KD is known as an offensive powerhouse. Aside from that, Miller claims everything else virtually checks out.

I love winning. I’ve just created this obsession with winning. I’m not afraid to go to another team to do it. I’ve been on super teams, been playing football for a long time, and all I want to do is win.

Willing to join super teams and doesn’t mind being a bus rider more than a driver? Check. Willing to do everything to win? Check. Has burner accounts? Check. That's right, Miller confirmed he has “a little finsta.” Miller is a 2-time Super Bowl champion. Durant is also a 2-time NBA champion. The similarities are uncanny, but Von didn’t stop there.

LeBron James, Steph Curry of the NFL

He also mentioned Steph Curry’s version in the NFL. For the Dallas native, Cooper Kupp is Chef Curry’s counterpart in football. Miller revealed both maintain a clean image, consistent, and aren’t flashy but get the job done. On the other hand, Curry’s impact on basketball is greater than Kupp’s impact on football. The Golden State Warriors star changed the game forever with his outside shooting. What did Kupp do so far that could be considered game-changing?

Meanwhile, he likened LeBron James to Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers has four MVP awards in his bag but only won one Super Bowl in his career more than a decade ago. Von Miller said Aaron is the poster child for success and championships; however, other fans would point out that James should be Tom Brady when it comes to consistency, winning, and success.

Brady won three MVPs and seven Super Bowl titles. Compared to The King, both delivered titles to different teams they played in and still gave amazing performances even in their late 30s. So, in terms of numbers, Tom is closer to the achievements of LeBron than the Green Bay Packers star. However, if Rodgers wins another MVP or title before calling it quits, he would have solidified his stake as one of the best in NFL history and closer to LeBron James comparisons.
