The thing that amazes me is how the really obsessive types can talk about one player or subject for literally years at a time without getting sick of it. I got so sick of the Tim Duncan versus Kevin Garnett argument on here in 2003 that I still donít want to talk about it now. But we have people who have 8000 or 9000 posts either directly or indirectly about LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan or in some specialized cases Chamberlain or Giannis.

How they do it is completely beyond me. Nobody is that interesting.

If aliens invaded Independence Day style and we fought them off I donít know that I could post about it and nothing else 10,000 times in a row.

This is kind of ironic considering you'll write 10 page essays on some of the most boring shit in existence.

Duncan > Garnett

It's clearly close and I am not even considering championships. I think peak/prime Duncan is top 10-12 all time (depending on how you value bball before the 80's)) and Garnett is more in the top 25-30.

But in the grand scheme of things, that is close.

Tim Duncan was never as impactful as a 2004 Kevin Garnett was. KG definitely peaked higher.

I assume many are just doing it because they get a kick out of annoying other people.

But I donít know how one can spend that much energy arguing that Jordan is better than Lebron or whatever....I would get tired of it.

Bullshit

Tim Duncan peaked higher in 2003, literally one year earlier.

That ranking for KG is me giving respect for the pre 1980's generations.

If we are just talking post-1980, KG is top 20.

Kevin Garnett >> Tim Duncan and it ain't even close.


Give 03-04 KG a prime Kawhi, Ginobili and Patty Mills = championship cruise.

Pm me.

I dono I'll throw some shit out. Depends on how the discussion is going. People need to be reminded of some of the few fax... Like unfort kobe isn't better than Bron. ****** need direction.

I have a weird memory for words and I ain't lying when I say we all have posted the same shit, word for word points and phrases . Probably unavoidable but sux nonetheless.

It's hard to understand why people do the Stan thing but id respect them if they really cared about bball and not just trolling. I'll discuss anything at any time, maybe. It's just a game time decision whether I close the thread or spam it with irrelevant bs.

It's super rare that there is any engaging discussion like someone says something where you're like wow I haven't heard that pov before. We all probably know way too much about basketball. At least in the sense of how bball discussions unfold.

But I'm not above jumping in.
