so which one of these guys is Dirk better than ? I'll wait all day.


I will take KG, Duncan, Malone and Barkley over Dirk all day. I'm not so sure about Mchale though.


Only PF I would take over DIRK is Duncan because he was the only other PF on the list who proved you can build a team around him and deliver a title. None of the others could. KG needed to join The Truth in Boston to win a title and Malone & Barkley never tasted glory.

Can't argue much with this.
