    Malone is such a douche and remains the biggest choker in the history of the NBA. The greatest PF of all-time? He's not even in my top four! Duncan is clearly better than him (not debatable), and I'd also put KG, Barkley and Dirk ahead of him. I think you could even make a case for Kevin McHale, albeit not a particularly strong one.

    Also, saying he'd rather take Pippen over Jordan? What an idiot...

    I would put Barkley just outside the top 5.

    If you look closely Barkley's only 5'9.

    Fabricio Oberto- 6'10 (could play the 4/5)
    Tiago Splitter- 6'11

    Duncan is a PF who could play C if/when needed. Just as Magic could play multiple positions, Lebron, etc...

    Granted he's played with Blair/Diaw the past few years in the starting lineup, but again he's capable of either.
    I have seen box scores where Duncan was listed as a PF next to Malik Rose. I have seen box scores where Rose was listed at center.

    I know, I was simply pointing out the Centers he's played next to in addition to someone like Rose or Blair. Also noting the fact that he's capable of either

    The people who have Dirk and KG ahead of Malone don't know **** about basketball. People want to talk about Malone's "struggles" in the playoffs but neglect to mention that KG didn't get a ring until he was put on a completely stacked team. When he was the man the T-Wolves were a joke.

    And I really wish people would stop discrediting longevity like it's something that just doesn't matter. You guys know it's part of your job as a professional athlete to be in the best shape you can be and make sure you can play at your highest level for as long as you can.

    And this whole Barkley stepped it up so much in the playoffs and Malone didn't. Their career playoff stats are almost identical (Malone better scorer, Barkley better rebounder) and Malone played in 70 MORE games than Barkley and played a lot of those well after his prime. So somebody is going to have to show me something that I guess isn't there for me to believe Barkley's playoff performances just blow Malones out of the water. And this talk of no rings...Malone went to one more Finals than the almighty Charles did.

    Duncan is clearly the best PF to play the game. In my mind Malone is second, Barkley third, KG fourth, and nobody else is really close.


    Rippin' lips son!!

    Challenge accepted (just like the Rockets accepted the challenge and crushed the Jazz by 45 points last night ).

    Good point. Oh wait... No it's not. When did KG play with arguably the greatest distributor and one of the best No. 2s in the history of the NBA? And Malone STILL couldn't win a title. His career PER dropped 12 percent and his career WS/48 dropped 32 percent in the playoffs. Sorry, bro, but choking is choking.

    And I really wish people would stop discrediting longevity like it's something that just doesn't matter. You guys know it's part of your job as a professional athlete to be in the best shape you can be and make sure you can play at your highest level for as long as you can.
    Longevity does matter, but it also shouldn't be taken nearly as seriously as peak performance and postseason success. Also, it certainly helps that he played with Stockton essentially his entire career. 19 seasons, 0 titles, 2 MVPs he didn't deserve. Color me unimpressed.

    And this whole Barkley stepped it up so much in the playoffs and Malone didn't. Their career playoff stats are almost identical (Malone better scorer, Barkley better rebounder) and Malone played in 70 MORE games than Barkley and played a lot of those well after his prime.

    I don't understand what point you're trying to make. Of course he played in more playoff games and had more Finals appearances, because he had a superior supporting cast in Utah than Barkley had in Phoenix and his later years in Philly. But if you want to argue postseason play, Barkley's career playoff PER and WS/48 absolutely dwarfs Malone's. It's not even close.

    Duncan is clearly the best PF to play the game. In my mind Malone is second, Barkley third, KG fourth, and nobody else is really close.
    Dirk won a ring with an inferior supporting cast against his era's greatest player. Malone failed twice. His postseason (and regular season) numbers also crush Malone's and he also has an MVP that he probably didn't deserve. To say he isn't anywhere close to Malone is to simply ignore his accomplishments for the sake of your argument.

    This has probably been mentioned quite a few times but Malone is just mad that Duncan is the greatest PF of all time.

    1. Duncan
    2. Malone
    3. Barkley

    then it gets interesting with Nowitzki, Garnett, and McHale. Hell, you can even throw Bob Pettit and Chris Webber into the argument but most people would probably put them after those 3, and rightfully so. I'm just saying it's only fair to mention them in the conversation.
