Looking at this list of top players can you honestly argue that Dirk blongs in the top 25? This article was written this year and now that Dirk won a Championship he's going to move up, but how much. I just stopped posting after Dirk.

I would honestly put him in the 25-35 ranking, but it's hard for me to rank him any higher because he's so one demensional. He's an awesome shooter and I'd rank him higher in the best shooters but not all-time.

I think it's hilarious how people argue for him in the top 20. Letting people know Dirks decline won't be like Duncan's or KG, as they play in the middle defense, so they get banged around a lot more than Dirk. IMO the 2nd key to the Mavs winning was Chandler, without his inside presence, there's no way Mavs win.

Dude, there is literally a thread open right now that is asking the exact same question.
