    I completely agree with him and have said it numerous times. Duncan is a versatile Center. Malone is the best true PF in the history of the game.

    perfect list for me.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    This is just wildly inaccurate and ignorant. Duncan't numbers, postseason success, defense and every other possibly feasible measure of him as a player completely dwarfs Malone's to a point where it's absolutely no contest. But hey... Malone was a better free throw shooter. So there's that, right?

    I love the list, but I'm not sure how Dirk doesn't crack the top five. Defensively, he's certainly not winning any DPOY awards, but neither did Barkley. If Barkley is No. 2 despite being an atrocious defender, how can Dirk be left off this list?

    Guys like Duncan and KG could play either position, but the bulk of their time came as true PFs. They have range, but can also score inside, defend around the rim or in the perimeter against bigs with range. Calling them merely "power forwards" doesn't do them justice, but they're certainly not just centers either. People who claim Duncan is a C playing PF are just nitpicking because the guy is tremendously talented and versatile. In fact, I would argue that someone calling Malone a "true PF" is pretty much an insult. If he was half the player Duncan was, he could have defended opposing 5s, but in the 90s he would have absolutely been slaughtered by Hakeem, Shaq, Robinson, Ewing, Zo, etc.

    Bottom line, Tim Duncan has spent most of his career at C and no matter how you chose to classify him, he absolutely crushes Malone in every fathomable way.

    I somewhat agree, if you replace Dirk over McHale, I can live with it. But the list itself was right on. I think the 4-7 spots at PF are so subjective, its not even worth arguing.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    I'm ok with Dirk over McHale. Top "whatever" list are difficult and usual can be alter slightly. I would have Dirk right after McHale so if you have him ahead of Kevin that's totally understandable.

    You can say what you day about my oppinion, but centers are low post, of are high post. Do you want Duncan shooting the 15 footer or posting? He could do both, but he is and ess mainly low post esp.when it came to Shaq. KG. high post. Pf

    No rings and played with a top 3 PG. He was a great player but not an all time great like some want to think. I'll take Duncan and KG easily over him and maybe Barkley too. Dirk could make a case too.
    Well it took kg many years to win his one and only ring... And the main reason he got it was of the 2 hof's he played along side with

    My top three would be the same, but I would put KG ahead of Barkley because of defense. I'd also put Dirk at No. 4 ahead of Malone and then McHale at 6. But I definitely think those are the six best.

    interesting argument:

    If (insert player) was on (insert team), would that player still be able to carry that team to the finals/win the championship?

    duncan
    dirk
    kg
    malone
    barkley

    spurs
    mavs
    celtics
    jazz
    suns

    duncan is the best. i have no qualms with that. but i think dirk deserves more credit as well.

    if you gave each pf above the mavs roster when they went to the finals twice, only duncan at his peak would've been able to replicate or best what dirk did imo.

    I actually think Barkley and KG could have accomplished that in their primes. Barkley was an offensive force and placing him between Marion and Chandler would have hid a lot of his defensive struggles. And imagine a defensive frontcourt of prime KG with Tyson Chandler.

    Malone, however, I struggle to see winning a title with that squad. Aside from a couple of solid postseasons, he regularly hid from the big moments. As a huge underdog against the almighty Miami Heat trio? No way that Mavs team with Malone wins that series.
