That said, I still think it's fair to consider how far Dirk would have gotten in the playoffs if you plugged him into the teams that Tracy has been on. Dirk has had the luxury of regularly being surrounded by a very talented roster, and Tracy generally hasn't at all. You have to take that into consideration if you want to look at it fairly, that's all I'm saying.
i see your point and i took it under consideration...BUT how do you blow a 3-1lead when you made such a confident statement on national tv? yes dirk is surrounded with talent but its also coaching and his ability to space the floor...
what i believe is happening is that dirk is hitting his prime while macgrady's back is catching up to him...but even with injuries asside, i would STILL take dirk...only because he is a PF who can ALSO play like a guard.
