No, I am not saying alone. I'm saying of equal input. Dirk is better than his teammates but they won the title on defense. You are very familiar with this concept, now you are acting like you brand new. Its the argument you used against Derrick Rose for MVP. You know the argument very well.
. That's you. You said Derrick Rose wasn't top seven player because of that. When Rose shot like Dirk did the last three games of the finals you dogged him bad and called him all types of names. I have those post too. You won't answer who had a tougher assignment than Kidd cause you know I cornered you. Plus I practically have the video tape of you dogging Rose on the exact same principle.
Kidd had the toughest defensive assignment of any perimeter player in the history of the playoffs. You know it, I know it. Plus Kidd lead the team in assist, steals and three pointers as well, he controlled the tempo, he was the main man stopping Miami from running. He was important on both sides of the ball every trip up and down the court. So the distance between Dirk and Kidd is minimal in terms of effectiveness. Wade almost single handily destroyed Dallas in the playoffs before. Kidd's part of the pie was bigger than Dirk's. Terry's part of the pie was big in those last three games.
I asked and you give me an answer that would be true for every single player that won ever. Nobody won alone. When Duncan won in 03...his help actually did help him. When Hakeem won in 94...you could point to so many examples of his help coming through.
So I will ask again and hopefully you will finally answer. Which superstars won titles with less help than Dirk in the last 30 years. Please answer.
I answered that when you first asked. Dirk had more help than you realize. Dirk made hero shots but didn't have the bulk of the responsibility. He's there to score and his rebounding was ok. It was a very simple job. Lebron has way more responsibility than Dirk did despite having much more talent. Lebron lead his team in every category and if he plays bad, like he did against Dallas, the team can't compensate. When Dirk played bad in the finals the team was able to compensate and beat the Wade/Bosh team.
Therein lies my answer.
