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.

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.
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.
[QUOTE=mightybosstone;25255562]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?
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

WE BELIEVE... TILL THE LAST SHOT, TILL THE LAST REBOUND, TILL THE LAST WHISTLE "WE FIGHT!!!!!!!!!"
If (insert player) was on (insert team), would that player still be able to carry that team to the finals/win the championship?
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.
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.
He is right i have been saying this for years Duncan is a center and always has been.
