I just don't believe there have been many players that are the winners that Duncan is. He does what he ahs to and will most probably win another championship or two before he retires

MJ is genuwine icon of our time. Duncan is like MJ. not by the skills or game. but MJ was the best SG of his time. Duncan is the best PF of his time. it's simple as that folks.

Duncan doesn't have to get huge numbers anymore as he is enough of a player to make his teammates better and make them step up their game, A HUGE difference between him and Garnett

I agree with this post. The stats are too close (a bit towards KG), but I think Duncan is a better leader. Of course, that can't be measured through stats, so it's hard to prove. It's just an opinion.

No, I didn't miss it, but I don't think he can be labeled as a favourite. Not when your greatest joy came from seeing him dunked on. Being a favourite implies that you liked something about his game, not his lack of it.

Maybe could be a favourite scrub... but there's another thread for those. :wink:

the stats aren't close at all. KG has the edge in points, boards, assists, steals, blocks, FG%, FT%, 3p%, Turnovers, and Fouls. It's basically a wilt vs. russell argument. Do you want the guy who won rings (with an MVP and a couple of other allstars on his team) or the guy who played with a bunch of YMCA players but dominated the league thoroughly. If I'm starting a team, I'll pick KG every time because he can get you about 40 wins on his own. If duncan had sczerbiak as his best teammate how do you think he'd do?

This is one of those cases where stats don't tell the story. Garnett and Duncan are about even but Duncan does what he has to to win. Garnett has had decent teams with Wally and Brandon alongside him, Hudson (had a great first season there) with Wally, Billups (also had a great season there) and Wally and has also had solid role players like LaPhonso Ellis. Duncan has had better teams but not a whole lot better. David Robinson was not much of a superstar after Duncan's first season and Duncan had to make do with players like Avery Johnoson and Jaren Jackson, who were solid at best. Parker and Ginobili have risen now but they are still not great stars

Dude, you're putting guys like laphonso ellis and troy hudson at the same level as michael finley and bruce bowen. Look at the roster the spurs had this year.
G - Tony Parker/Nick the Quick
G - Manu Ginobili/Michael Finley
F - Bowen/Barry
F - Duncan/Horry
C - Mohamed/Nesterovic

Now how does that team not win a ring? I'll tell you how, because Dirk outplays TD. KG is dirk's cryptonite, he does similar things to dirk, but better. TD is not close to the leader KG is. Who gets the ball in the clutch? Not TD usually, it's bob, or even Manu. KG would have willed himself to win those clutch games because he has more desire and guts than anybody in this league save maybe AI and Kobe. He just has never had his backup five look like a starting five.
