Re: Lets Be Real: Dirk Was More Successful as a Lead Dog Than KG
Dirk is the more valuable piece. You can pick up a few role players to give you what KG would give you, but Dirk is special.
Dirk is one of the few players who can be a true number 1 option on a winning team. There aren't many in NBA history, most of them are top players.
You are just nit picking if you talk about Dirks lack of D or rebounding, such things are easily picked up (as you saw by guys like Marion and Chandler who, while good, were nowhere near all-star level impact.)
