    There's never a right or wrong path, but let me tell you why each of those has a **** meaning to them.

    TD, too ez. Clearly number 1 but only because he took the ***** path and stayed on a team that would protect his center minutes. Always a great team defender but I'd argue his defensive peak came far later in his career, post peak play. Should be ranked with centers.

    Dirk, you have some balls. I like the precedent you set going with a limited defensive factor and downright liability for early/final portions of his career. So my question is, why not chuck? Dude made the finals and lost to the guy you consider greater than any other involved here. I'd argue chuck played better in his finals than either of Dirks. He just ran into peak mj, oh well, at least he wasn't Malone.

    Oh ****, you have Malone ahead of sir Charles too? Why is it greater to be inferior so long as you sustain that level of play longer? Remember when dream team was happening and people were hyping up how it would be Malone breaking through as a threat to the trinity. Instead it was chuck who stole the show and dominated in ways Malone never could despite having Stockton forever.

    Gasol? Short peak, KG had many arguably longer stretches of superior play but gets ranked beneath? Why? Both great passers and defenders at their peak, both shunned away from big moments but kg carried franchises while pau bought into playing limited minutes as his primary intangible.

    Power forward is one of the hardest positions to judge because so many of the all-time greats at the position played before our time and it's really tough to measure the offense-first guys against the defense-first guys. It's top heavy, so pretty much everyone will have the same top five guys in some order. But after that, the lists are going to vary drastically from 6-10 depending on how you judge newer guys versus older guys and offense versus defense.

    Some people will have guys like Brand, Stoudemire and Bosh in their top 10. Others will have guys like Rodman, Debuscherre and Jones. Some will give more credit to a guy like Gasol over a guy like Pettit, whose numbers are superior but who played so long ago that it's hard to judge. But I'm willing to bet this position will be the one where we see the greatest variation in those 6-10 spots.

    KG was easily contained offensively. Rarely demonstrative. Lots of greats had it hard but went ham despite their cast and defensive attention. KG shriveled every step of the way, even his champ season is tainted by so many losses. KG is a great glue guy, chuck drilled you regardless.

    The game has changed more in the years you've been watching than it did than any other era. It's not hard to compare because of age, but because of recent innovation

    Measuring KG, Barkley, Dirk and Malone next to each other is really hard. I gave KG the slightest of edges over Barkley because of his defensive impact, but I gave Barkley the edge over Dirk and Malone because of he was probably the most dominant offensive player of the four. And Dirk got the edge over Malone because of the superior postseason resume.

    But you could use any number of barometers to judge those four guys, and it's impossible to have a right or wrong answer.
