Tmac or/vs Kobe was a legit topic of discussion back in the day. I picked tmac because his game was silky smooth like MJ. He made the game look easy. It's a shame that injuries robbed him of a better career. Imagine injury free tmac vs kobe. That would have been a spectacle.

Tim Duncan almost signed says Doc Rivers, but they actually only had enough money for 2 of the three players and would have taken Hill and Duncan if choosing

Man tmac said he has a connection with Kobe that nobody else has... I think he did
This is "Exhibit A" of what's wrong with the basketball Hall of Fame..While I like T-Mac, he is not a Hall Of Famer! There had been many great scorers in the NBA/College who are not in the Hall. Where is : 1) Dale Ellis 2) Dale Curry 3) Vinny Johnson 4) Roland Blackmon, 5) Mark Aguirre 6) Robert Horry... 8) Otis Thorpe 9) Bill Laimbeer `10) Chauncey Billups 11) Rip Hamilton 12) Rasheed Wallace 13) Ben Wallace.. The Ball Hall of fame has become a TV marketing show..Nothing..

@richard dean i understand that. A.I was my fav player until i got hipped on Kobe mind frame n how he approached the game. But Tmac was definitely on par with Iverson. It comes down to playoff matchups. Which is why Lebron stayed on the East n which I dnt blame him because ppl dnt see the uphill battles. In 02 McGrady lost to the hornets averaging 31 while Baron Davis averaging 25. The hornets players averaged (without BD n Tmac pts) 76pts to Magic 63 pts plus out rebound them every game. Tmac wouldve had to avg. at least 45 pts just to barely win. In 03 The Magic was face to face with the Detroit champs who played swarming defense on Tmac because he was the only scorer who still took them to 7 games putting up 43 n 46 in 2 games while avg. 32. He had one team mate who only had 14 pg. and everbody else under 10pts a game. Thats a lot to ask for out of a player giving their all

@mansoor p Well they probably would of won in 04 had Sam Cassell not gotten injured...You cant think Kobe (since he was 2nd fiddle to Shaq) is on par with a 33 year old Latrell and the Spurs had alot of solid role players and the Piston were basically a 5 team unit of all bubble allstars...Dirk always had alot of teammates if Dirk and KG switched spots we wouldn't be even talking about Dirk right now...You seem to not take into account that KG's offense he could of scored more points no question but he was averaging 5 or more assist during his prime that's insane for a PF he even averaged 6 for an entire season. His MVP season was better than Dirk or Duncans as well...24/14/5/2/2 with great defense

Early 2000s basketball was different. There never really was a duo tandem of superstars with the exception of the Lakers (shaq and kobe). 00-02 Lakers were champs, 03 Spurs (Duncan was #1 and rest talented bunch), 04 Pistons (no superstars), 05 Spurs (Duncan #1), 06 Heat (Shaq...wade lit up the finals but wasn't a superstar up to that point), 07 (best spurs team legit stacked), 08 Celtics (big 3) Timberwolves had one legit chance of winning the championship and that was in 04. KG timmberwolves had the #1 seed and KG was the MVP. His wolves were pretty good. Last great year by sprewell and Cassel. A team with enough talent to win it but never got it done. Sometimes I think KG was extremely overrated. I never saw him in Duncans class or Nowitski and not even Prime Amare. He was a hell of a defender but his offensive game had much to be desired. I never understood the hype. Duncan had unstoppable moves (posting and hitting the glass on a turnaround), Nowitski could shoot it anywhere, and so forth. T-Mac had a 3 year window of being the best basketball player on the planet. As soon as he gets to the rockets like a year later he got injured and then it kept happening.

They just had opportunities as role players. Its saids like cheating but role players may not get the checks that all stars get but they will be able to get rings that some all stars will never get. Even though their skill sets deserve rings their teams can be under matched against these big 3 teams or squads that have a deep bench

rock davis lol. I’m a fan of the game. LeBron is my favorite player. Jordan is a better player than Kobe. I’m not arguing that point. I’m simply talking about skill. When we talking about skill, we not talking about efficiency or stats. We’re talking about your moves. What you do to create space, your footwork, how you play angles, etc. In that area, Kobe was better because (as someone noted above), Jordan was more athletic (in comparison to his peers) so he didn’t have to rely on skill as much. The same way that most of LeBron career, he’s played bully ball with precision passing, his scoring hasn’t been super skillful (not until later in his career). Kobe’s footwork is better than Mike’s. He scored from more areas of the floor. He had the ability to learn from greats that played with Micheal and incorporate them into his game. Subtle hooks, spins, and different dribble moves, it’s a total package. I’m not arguing who’s better. If you’ve been thinking that for days, you haven’t actually paid attention to a single word, just posting because you’re emotionally

What are you guys talking about, the spurs weren’t bums before TD, hell, the admiral lead them to the conference finals two seasons before TD got there. They were a constant playoff team before TD and the only reason they got him was cause the admiral got hurt and they made it into the lottery. KG had to develop under a sub par Flip Saunders (good but not great) and mentored by an underwhelming Sam Mitchell, imagine KG being mentored by David Robinson and Pop, no disrespect to TD but saying Spurs wouldn’t win if they had KG instead is straight blasphemous.

@daindigokid I agree with everything you said except Duncan came in the league ready. He was an MVP candidate his first year in the league and won a ring in his second. KG averaged 10ppg in his rookie year, Tim Duncan was flat out a better from jump. Pop may not even have lasted as a coach for the Spurs if they don't acquire Duncan.

To my opinion..I think Duncan is overrated. I still respect his contributions to the game and especially to the spurs organization but in my eyes he’s not touching Barkley, Malone, or McHale(arguable). I see Duncan being a top 3 or 4 all time. I’m not factoring in when talking about the greatest PLAYERS of all time. Not who has the most rings. Etc
TrueKnicksFan25 5 oy oldin
Russell Green I know that. This was just my opinion. I never said he was a bum or he had no competition All I said was I’d take those guys ahead of him. From my perspective the only one I would take Duncan over is McHale. Of course Duncan is a hall of famer and the face of the Spurs organization even over Gervin but Barkley and Malone were beasts in their own right. Malone is the 2nd all time in scoring. All 4 are great regardless. Again, this is just my opinion. I sincerely would love to hear yours

champagne kevin I’m not talking about chips. If that’s the case then Robert Horry is the best pf ever. I’m talking about PLAYER. Secondly this is my opinion if you don’t like it then go kick rocks. If you read what I put I said I respect him for what he did for the Spurs insinuating that the Spurs wouldn’t be the Spurs without him. Period.
TrueKnicksFan25 5 oy oldin
Tremayne Williams winning chips doesn’t make you the best of all time. If that’s the case then Horry is the best PF of all time. I’m talking about player...not chips.
TrueKnicksFan25 5 oy oldin
LEZ not really. McHale wasn’t flashy either. Some other people might say that Malone was just a pick and roller. I respect Duncan because without him the Spurs wouldn’t have won multiple chips and he’s a winner no question. I just think he’s not better as a player than the 3 guys I mentioned. The only one I could probably replace with is McHale

Jay Money I would agree that Kobe was the better defender but I’d argue, look at what they were playing for. Like TMac said, Kobe was playing for championships and he was playing for scoring titles. Had Tracy been in a better situation where competing for titles was the goal, he may have been a better defender than we had seen. Not an excuse, just a deeper look
