2006 Dirk
2011 Dirk
2007 Dirk
2005 Dirk
2003 Dirk
2008 Dirk
2010 Dirk

08 Kobe
06 Kobe
01 Kobe


Those are the ten seasons. Now where to slide the Kobe seasons into Dirk? Much tougher. My best attempt:

06 Dirk
11 Dirk
07 Dirk
05 Dirk
08 Kobe
06 Kobe
03 Dirk
01 Kobe
08 Dirk
10 Dirk

. All were on the ATG level and all of them generated impact within the half SRS threshold between the best(09 Kobe) and the worst(01 Kobe).

11 Dirk
06 Dirk
09 Kobe
08 Kobe
07 Dirk
01 Kobe (2007 Dirk and 2001 Kobe are like... the opposites, but I went with the MVP season vs a young but already devastating Kobe)
08 Dirk (I like this mature Dirk but I could change with 2005)
06 Kobe
05 Dirk
03 Kobe

Dirk definitely ahead for me thanks to his two best seasons and slighlty better average prime seasons

I think my list would go something like:
1. 2008 Kobe
2. 2009 Kobe
3. 2006 Kobe
4. 2011 Dirk
5. 2010 Dirk
6. 2006 Dirk
7. 2007 Dirk
8. 2007 Kobe
9. 2003 Kobe
10. 2001 Kobe


2008 Dirk, 2009 Dirk, 2010 Kobe, and 2005 Dirk are probably my closest seasons that didn't make it in, and like feyki said these seasons are only really within about a half point of value from the best season to the worst so they're pretty close.

2006 and 2011 Dirk are solidified-in-stone, Top 2. I'm dismissing all lists without this order.

11 Dirk
10 Dirk
06 Dirk
08 Dirk
07 Dirk
01 Kobe
09 Dirk
05 Dirk
03 Kobe
02 Kobe
Now that's the difference between first and last place.
