I was talking to a friend about this today. Not for any specific game but through out the whole post-season.

No, how does a few good games against the Thunder get him into the top 10?

Maybe because he did it with one of the weakest championship teams of all time? That team was basically a bunch of outcasts that had a magical post-season run, namely the formula Dirk was looking for his whole career. Defenders, a defensive C, good PGs, and shooters.

But I'd still say no to top 10, top 15 definitely.

No. he played well, but it was an team effort. He hit the clutch baskets. You could tell Dirk was on his last leg

Wow ignorant.

Dirk is in the conversation. You will have a hard time pointing to worse overall teams on paper than those Mavs who won the finals. Dirk put them on his back multiple times in that post season. Saying his 2 beastly games against the Thunder were it is beyond enfuriating.

It definitely has to be up there. The way he carried that team was miraculous. I've only seen a few others in the game, ever, that can dominate the offensive side of the ball like he did. Those shots he was hitting, the faders, leaners, 1 foot leaners, etc. Just incredible what he did and it sure as hell gained my respect for him as one of the greatest players I've ever seen in regards to his career in all.

I'm 48 years old and have been watching the NBA since I was a teenager. That was a top-10 post-season performance.

He means performance not ranking as a player.

I have only been watching the NBA for a decade now and in this decade IMO the only person that was more valuable to their team than Dirk in playoffs, the year the team won the ring ofcourse, was 03 Duncan. There were a lot of guys with way better stats than Dirk, but everyone watching that years playoffs knew Dirk was doing something special. Heck, I feel like every fourth quarter they would just give it to Dirk in the last six minutes and say Dirk win us the game. I remember once against the Heat he scored on LeBron,Wade,and Bosh to win the game. I have never seen someone score so easy with being guarded heavily. However, Timmy was just plain unreal in 03.

Heat fans, Lebron lovers, and advanced stat nerds will say otherwise. But that was absolutely an all-time performance. He willed his team to victory with no other real superstars. Played all really good teams in the playoffs and pretty much dominated. He was unstoppable. But again, look through this thread and see the people who say otherwise.

Top 15...but it was definitely one incredible post season run for him. No doubt about that.

Who said it wasn't one of the greatest all-time performances? It's just not top 10.

Being on mission in all those fourth quarter rallies, yes but not if you're counting the whole games. Stats or no stats back and forth.

The Mavs were great though when they always seemd to be coming back from the dead. The best of all that always was the talking before, about everything that they are not and about everything that they can not achieve, but in te end they did.

Even their opponents played against them with that mentallity, missing to close them out when they were lying on the ground. Last laugh was on them, not on the big three Florida waterboys. In the end... god damn Hilarious.

Top ten or not. I'm counting this way: One for the Mavs. Heat got their second and Bron his first the year after, so we're all fine, aren't we? And yes, Durant will get his too. For sure.
