    If Dwight wins a Title/MVP THIS Year.....

    How much does it elevate his status in the pantheon of great big-men?


    By that I mean if this is the pinnacle of his career and the rest of his career is solid nothing elite or bad, but he has this ring, does he have a greater career than the following bigs:

    Alonzo Mourning, Patrick Ewing, Karl Malone, David Robinson, Moses Malone?

    I wouldn't put him there yet. He's become a beast but he doesn't have the longivity that that they had. He's definitely not over robinson, both malones, and ewing yet.

    I think it all depends on the rest of his career. It sure gives him a great shot at being better than those players.

    He will be considered better than Alonzo perhaps but not the other guys. The other guys were constantly top 5 players in the league yearly. How long has Dwight been considered a top 5 player in the league?

    Thanks MJ-Bulls for the picture.

    Solid reasoning, had a feeling hed be better than Alonzo, Im on the fence as to whether this puts him above Ewing. But the rest he would need a few seasons where hes ruling the NBA to be in there class

    Not over any of those listed (except for Mourning) yet. You can't fault Ewing or Karl Malone for not having rings when they happened to be in the league at the same time as Jordan and Olajuwan. Especially Jordan.

    Think of it as a grade scale, Zo as great as he was, is step 1, moving gradually to the top of the class where Moses resides (Only 1 title). He marks the beginning for the GREATEST bigmen of All-Time IMO, once Dwight reaches that point we can start comparing him to the Duncans and Dreams of the world.

    By the end of his career if he got 1 ring he will be considered better than all those guy's except Robinson.. and he would still have a chance to be better than him, if his career goes somewhere down the line of shaq's

    If he wins the title and MVP, he'll be well on his way to that class of all time great C's. He won't be there if he does it but if he does, oh my, he'll be headed toward the shaq, hakeem, russel, kareem wilt territory. Notice, I said he'll won't be there with a title this year, but it's not unfathomable to think if he can win a DPOY at 23, and a title and finals MVP at 23, he'll have a ****ing amazing career ahead of him.

    Chronz that sig is freaking hilarious, but to the thread. My opinion won't change on Dwight if he wins it this year, if he doesn't im not going to say I think he is garbage.
