Re: top 5 players....is Dirk still there?
In response to RICHIE2K6's comments that if you layed it all out Duncan would be greater than Kobe. I don't think so. Duncan stays on a great team, with a great coach who's franchise has been great enough and lucky enough (Draft Parker at 29) to be able to make this run. Sure maybe Kobe's ego had something to do with the Lakers breaking up and he appears to be a 6'6 cry baby, when you lay it all out he is the greatest individual talent. He is dominant on both ends of the floor.
The blueprint to win in the NBA you need 2 go to guys. A guard and a pretty dominant big man. You put KG on the lakers right now playing in Phil's triangle, they are title contenders for sure.
