just his opinion. Some people think Kobe is better than Duncan, other believe the opposite.

I just don't see any objective basis for that opinion.

People who thinks it's not debatable either way are ****ing idiots. I give Duncan the edge, but I don't mind anyone thinking Kobe as long as they admit it's close.

I love how anyone can think it's crazy to say that the guy that has essentially never won less than 50 games in his entire career and has won 4 titles as the man...one of the best teammates ever...

who has career playoff averages of 22/12/3 while providing some of the best defense of all time for 16 years now....

what a crazy notion...

Duncan's career winning% is above 70%. Seriously. Just let that sink in.

Stats, FG%, overall TS, playoff numbers, rings as the man, etc. indicate that it's not really debatable.

Unless you have on permanent Kobe goggles, I don't see how you can realistically rank Kobe ahead of Duncan.

Despite all the things yall say about Duncan's greatness, why hasn't his team ever been dominant?

Kobe has went to 3 straight Finals on two separate occasions -- a 3-peat and a Repeat. People seem to forget how RARE a 3peat is.

Duncan has never repeated. In fact since the Lakers repeated in the 80's, only the '04 Pistons, Mavs, Heat, and Spurs have not repeated. That's almost 30 years.

If we're drafting them from their rookie year, I take Duncan every single time.

What's Kobe's advantage other than 1 more ring?

Didn't seem to stop Kobe from winning more rings and the Lakers from going to 2 more Finals.
