Question Great Players that were passed by the torch?

Kobe
Wade
Garnett
Dirk
Carter
McGrady
Webber
Yao
Kidd
Nash

The Torch went from Jordan to Shaq to Duncan to Lebron to Curry

Kobe and Dirk were the closest to grabbing it, but neither had sustained dominance across individual, team and reputation success for a consistent period. By 2007 Lebron had taken the torch from Duncan, and ran with it all the way to 2016. You could argue Kobe had the torch from 2006-2009, but Lebron was already a better player by then.

alot of greats in that early 2000's. Duncan really had a great run. One of the best torch handlers.
