    Tim Duncan vs Kevin Garnett (This is a close one, but I think KG takes it; TD is more of a team player)
    Larry Bird vs Magic Johnson (Magic)
    Shaq vs Hakeem (Shaq will over power him)
    P.Ewing vs D.Robinson (Robinson)
    Charles Barkley vs Karl Malone (Barkley)
    Dwyane Wade vs Dirk (This is a tough one due to the size, but since Irk play no D, I go for Wade)
    Kobe vs Lebron (Kobe, he is probably the best one on one player; and Lebron may choke at the end if it gets competitive anyway)
    Kareem vs Wilt (Wilt)
    Durant vs Dr J (KD, I have never been a fan of Dr J game)
    Steph Curry vs Gary Payton ( I think Payton shuts him down)

    Wade vs Dirk and Kobe vs LeBron doesnt seem like a fair matchup. You basically have a guard going up against a forward which wouldn't dictate who is better in the matchup since the forwards would use their height and strength to overpower the guard.

    Beat me to it. Who the hell plays a game up to 32? Are baskets worth 3 and 4 points?

    Almost always in these cases will be the guy who is the better jump shooter because you're rarely going to get easy layups. Only a few cases where one player is completely physically outmatched (Lebron vs Kobe) where it doesn't apply.

    Tim Duncan vs Kevin Garnett

    Larry Bird vs Magic Johnson

    Shaq vs Hakeem

    P.Ewing vs D.Robinson

    Charles Barkley vs Karl Malone

    Dwyane Wade vs Dirk

    Kobe vs Lebron

    Kareem vs Wilt

    Durant vs Dr J

    Steph Curry vs Gary Payton

    Seriously with the Wade vs Dirk? Kobe vs Lebron size wise is a little of a mismatch as a SG vs SF but it's no where near as stark as a 6'4 combo guard vs 7' PF.

    Tim Duncan vs Kevin Garnett: Duncan has traditionally owned KG in head-to-head matchups.
    Larry Bird vs Magic Johnson: Magic can't pass to himself, and Bird's shooting and size would make him tough to guard in a 1 on 1 matchup.
    Shaq vs Hakeem: Shaq is more physically dominant, but I don't see him handling Hakeem's athleticism well 1 on 1. Whereas Shaq isn't going to confuse Hakeem, and Olajuwon's not exactly someone you can bulldoze.
    Ewing vs Robinson: Slight edge to Robinson here. He was just the more athletic, physically dominant player in their primes offensively.
    Charles Barkley vs Karl Malone: Karl Malone blows. Enough said.
    Wade vs Dirk: Dirk's length and shooting would be tough for Wade to match up, but I can't see Dirk keeping up with Wade's athleticism.
    Kobe vs Lebron: Lebron's size and ability to score from anywhere on the floor at a hyper-efficient pace would just be too much for Kobe. God this one would be fun to watch, though.
    Kareem vs Wilt: I'd give a slight edge to Kareem here, as he was probably the more versatile scorer.
    Durant vs Dr. J: This is the first one that strikes me as a legitimate mismatch. Durant's length and shooting would be impossible for Dr. J to match. And Durant's length would be a problem for Erving regardless of his athleticism.
    Curry vs Payton: Another mismatch for me. Payton is an elite defender, but Curry is unguardable beyond the arc. Once he starts nailing 30-footers, this one would be over in a hurry. Payton doesn't have the scoring chops to keep up 1 on 1.

    Only one person picked The Glove over Steph. Really goes to show how many people actually watched GP play. Steph wouldn’t be able to breathe with GP on him and he’d get backed down on every possession. And I’m a Steph fan.
