sorry give me dirk. Tmac cant get out of the first round...dirk atleast took his team to the finals. a 7foot three point shooter is a NIGHTMARE of a matchup. hes a decent passer and he is an unselfish superstar. give me dirk all day any day.

McGrady is a loser and has a bad back. Gimme Dirk.

TMac is more skilled all-around, but if I had a choice, I'd rather build my team around Dirk

When healthy I'd take Tracy by a hair over Dirk, but if the Rockets were to get Bonzi I'd actually rather have Dirk simply for lineup reasons (Rafer/Bonzi/Shane/Dirk/Yao)...


but why do some of my fellow Rockets fans feel the need to make these kinds of threads? It always turns into a flame war and makes "us" look bad.

McGrady because he has the ability to take over a game and much better in the clutch.

Dirk over T-Mac

T-Mac will always be better than Dirk
Dirk is a scrub compared to him

this is dirk even when tmac is healthy. Throw in the injury concerns and its not close.

Is this supposed to be funny?
Anyway this is hard, a healthy T-Mac vs. Dirk, I honestly can't decide.

Id just as soon trade Josh Howard, Devin Harris, and Stackhouse for TMac and have them both.

Im too bias to answer this one, Dirk is a top 5 player and TMac is a top 5 player when healthy.

Ill take both of them.

macgrady chokes just as much a dirk. he had a 3-1 lead against the pistons. said "its great to finally get out of the first round" then lost 3 straight and was sent home. also choked away a game 7 against the mavs a few years ago.

iam looking at this from a opponent's defensive standpoint...there is no PF that can efficiently guard dirk because his ability to take his man to the perimeter leaves the paint open. macgrady may be the better scorer but thats basically all he does. he doesnt play much defense and he doesnt rebound...dirk was averaging double digit points and rebounds in the playoffs.

its also hard to compare the two because they play two different positions, but if was starting a team i would rather start with dirk because a player of his size and caliber is hard to find.
