Some of you think "The Big Ticket" is a guaranteed top 5 player, id take kobe wade lebron nash duncan anyday. Those are are proven winners. Kobes and Duncan got 3 rings. Wade just got 1, lebron is one man team who almost beat the pistons and will most definitely win one, and Nash lead a team of overachievers to conference finals and 2 time MVP. garnett will be 31 next year, it aint gonna get easier. I think some of you took the overated statement out of context. Garnett is great player but if he wants to be considered one of the defining players of this era with the likes of kobe, shaq, duncan he better win something. Even barkely, Malone and Stockton, Gary Payton, Patrick Ewing were able to lead their teams to the finals. Garnett's career can be remembered two ways: champion or Dominique Wilkins
I think this start another more reasonable question Is Steve Nash overrated ? i say yes 2 MVp and has yet to lead a team to a finals ? How many years was he with the Mavs and now with Jason Terry they make the finals. I can name 3 guards that Id take over Nash and he gets MVP Give me Tony parker, Allen Iverson and of course Wade over Nash. How does a man get 2 MVp and cant lead his team to a finals I guess this years playoffs should who the true MVp is WADE.
