why are some of you putting Duncan Behind LBJ.

Duncan still has some time in him and his defense is still great!!

You make some good points....but

I'm not going to give up on AI so quickly....AI's career scoring is 28PPG
and 30.6PPG in the playoffs, he has averaged anywhere from 5-8 assists
per game every year (10 years), coupel of steals, and he plays 40+
minutes a game his whole career!! These are MVP / Hall of Fame numbers!

My main point is he is much more skilled than Dirk!!!

No question. AI has MUCH more skill than Dirk. Silly to argue otherwise.
If AI retired today, he definately goes to the Hall of Fame. If Dirk retires today, no Hall of Fame.

they are superstars!!
Uh Lebron plays defense? he is a sub-par defender. Nowitzki is a better rebounder and shooter anywhere on the floor, he doesn't travel 49703838 times a game and doesn't depend on Stern bailing him out with phantom calls.

Maybe more, but that's six definites!!!
For God's sakes you put Lebron and KG ahead of Duncan. What has KG done in his career that Duncan hasn't? Forgetting the 3-0 chip count?

I'd put LBJ and KG over Duncan too. They got way better game than banking shots.

I see your point but LBJ is the King, and he's super young! You should
have him on your team for 10-12+ years. That size and talent and
young age.... I also like KG's attitude, it would mesh nicely with the
Lakers.... But I have no problem putting Tim infront of KG, they are
both right up there.
