On the show Open Court (NBA TV) Barkley, Webber and Miller are all saying Durant is the next best player after Lebron. How when all he does is shoot 3s?

Dirk took his team to the final and beat Lebron something that Durant hasn't done yet but he's better than Dirk? Yea right....

I believe Dirk's going to comeback this season strong, but until then Durant being placed over Dirk isn't exactly a bad thing.

Last season Kevin Durant averaged 2 made threes per game. That's a total of 6 points. He averaged 28ppg. He does a hell of a lot more than just shoot 3s.

I see where your coming from but Durant is a jumpshot player not post game.

sounds an awful lot like dirk

durant actually doesnt shoot that many 3's at all

Actually, yes, KD is. In crunch time, he uses his length to try to guard guys like Kobe etc.


Plus, he's a double digit rebounder and his passing and playmaking have improved every single yrs. Plus, he's ferocious driving to the basket.


Do you not watch enough OKC games?

Sure do OKC was defeated by the Heat in the finals when Dirk lead his team over Lebron in the finals.

What a terrible bait thread.

Are we really debating who is the better player between a 35 year old Dirk who is currently out with knee problems versus the reigning 3 time scoring champion, because all he does is "shoot 3's"? Get a grip dude... this isn't even a debate.

2004-2011 he could be argued as either being the best player to third best player, and certainly top 5-8 in those years.

In that case why do people compare Jordan and Kobe? Jordan is 50 years old...

Definitely top 5 in that time period but as of currently, he's a just an aging injured player who is top 10 worthy, I don't know where OP gets 2nd best player.

Lost = 1.Unable to find one's way; not knowing one's whereabouts: "they got lost in the fog".
2.Unable to be found: "he turned up with my lost golf clubs".


Lossed = failure to gain, win, obtain, or utilize

He honestly can be THAT good, I guess I just think higher of Dirk than most people, but as of now seeing as he hasn't even played one game yet, he's the 451st best player in the league so far.

but kobe is the same age and is a argued top 5, and dirk has only missed a total of 38 games in his 15 yr career....

but i do agree about op, although he is one of the most difficult players to guard even at 34, outside of scoring he really doesn't do much....top 10 for sure 6 maybe 7

Dirk beat Kobe Bryant, Lebron James, Kevin Durant, Dwyane wade, russel Westbrook, pau gasol, Chris bosh, Andrew Bynum, and aldrige in order to win a championship.

He did but he's not superhuman. He's human. Statistically, he's never been Kevin Love either. He's simply Dirk. He came here and developed a career no one expected from him and he even set some standards for PF's of his height. No more, no less. He can be a pain in everybody's opponent *** but he can also fail. He can battle with T-mac, beat the Spurs by himself but overall he's a team player, since basketball is a team sports. He belongs without a doubt to those players which might be rare but he's not all alone. It's not an olymp for just him, the LeBrons, the Mambas &the Timmys of this world. Many are elite, on a high level and they've battled often enough on court so don't let them constantly battle in fans heart and appreciation.

To the OP, you need to put up more reasons than 'Dirk has a ring'. Otherwise this looks like a trolling thread. Dirk lost his first NBA finals too. Durant got to his first much quicker than Dirk did.

Closing thread.
