Anyways...Kobe is slightly better.
No. But to be fair, Duncan had an amazing defense. Teams that played vs the Spurs in the 03 Playoffs averaged 89.3 ppg on .404% shooting! That is insane defense. Now Duncan was part of the reason why they were so good defensively, but when teams can't score on you, you don't need to do much on offense to win.
