KG gets older and fights the good fight at age 33.

Pau Gasol just keeps getting better and better.

But...this is the Playoffs. I think these guys would give each other royal hell in a seven game series.

Moron making dumb predictions. I'm pretty sure your account will be banned before the end of the Bos/Orl series.

Boston is 8-3 versus two very tough teams. I expect nothing less than 6 games.

Gasol has been consistently playing well but both are elite at this point. Won't know who's better unless they face each other.

Right cause Gasol's going against the defensive powerhouses in Jeff Green and Carlos Boozer. KG is still better than Gasol, his defense and toughness put him in front. Don't be mad and try to overrate Gasol cause he's carried your team through the first two rounds.

See what I mean guys? They're right back to their old BS. Told you they didn't give a rat's @$$ about Boston and now it's all back to KG is overrated, washed up, etc. Back to the Gay-G nicknames. So pathetic. Like I always say, they wonder why they're the laughingstock of NBA fans.

Default Re: Pau Gasol Or Kevin Garnett?? whos better

its a very tough call, to answer this one without being biased cos its very very close and you pick your favourite, then. i would say prime Kevin Garnett has the edge, just a few miles ahead. Still, if Gasol keeps his great level for several more years and win another chip he should be considered par to Garnett at the very least. to me, they are equally talented, being KG superior on defense and Gasol superior on the offense so its balanced.

As for careers, I have to disagree with most people giving the clear advantage to Garnett. Lets have a look at Gasol's international accolades

European Player of the Year awards
Mr. Europa (2004, 2009)
Euroscar Award (2008, 2009)
FIBA Europe Player of the Year (2008, 2009)

Spanish national team
Gold medal in the 2009 FIBA European Championship
Silver medal in Basketball at the 2008 Summer Olympics
Silver medal in the 2007 FIBA European Championship
Gold medal in 2006 FIBA World Championship
Most Valuable player in the 2006 FIBA World Championship
Silver medal in the 2003 FIBA European Championship
Bronze medal in 2001 FIBA European Championship
Gold medal at the FIBA Under-19 World Championship with Spain (1999)
Gold medal at the FIBA Europe Under-18 Championship with Spain (1998)

FC Barcelona
Spanish League Champion (2001)
Copa del Rey Spanish Cup Champion (2001)
Spanish League Finals MVP (2001)
Most Valuable Player in Copa del Rey (2001)

Only by this, an european player would become a HOFER automatically. In Europe, awards with the national team are far greater than any other achievement in any league. Now please tell me how Garnett's career achievements are above this or even close to this

As I said, to me they are both very close but please dont use the "career thing" to justify Garnett's advantage cos you just demonstrate your total lack of knowledge

This is the perfect demonstration of what a mindless troll is. Despite having proof of the opposite you cannot see it cos your head is so much stuck in Garnett's ass.

also its a clearly racist quote which shows what a piece of work u are. By the way, if you could read properly you would see its not only "european" but "world" bullshit, which includes the USA playing those tournaments, your beloved Big Ticket among them, by the way.

I dont say whos better cos its very close, no matter what. but stating Garnett is light years ahead...BASED ON WHAT? has Garnett played so much better than Gasol is playing now? ever?? if Gasol wins another ring, being key for the chip, is it not a bigger achievement than any of Garnett's? Not that i am stating it is, but at least it should make short-minded dudes like you think, if that is possible

Gasol did what vs Boston in the NBA Finals? Gasol did what vs Boston this year? Boston roughs up Gasol and he turns into a giant dryer sheet. Gasol can do nothing in his career to surpass KG. Only people who think that are those who live in Gasol old neighborhood or those who disilike KG antics.

Sorry, I have nothing else to add to this discussion.

my goodness.... "can do nothing in his career to surpass KG" ...

i bet my watch you are one of those who said Superman would crush Gasol in last year's finals , right? I smell hate all over the place...
Also, im sure you are one of those calling him "Gasoft" since for guys of your kind a real ball player must have tatoos and a foul mouth. One of the sympthons in a hater is that they wont change their mind, no matter what.

By the way, i love KG, hes a great player and again, im not saying who is better cos its much of a tie, in my opinion. Both have arguments to claim being the better player but some posters pro Garnett like you do not contribute with any reason or solid argument. Garnett and Gasol enhanced Celtics and Lakers and made them title contenders which they were not before 2008, so you have 2 players with a similar impact on their teams. is this not clear? doesnt take a PHd to understand it. or.... let me guess...Bynum is the reason for the Lakers ' rise ?

I call Gasoft what I do because when the game gets physical it shows. He's never been a top 10 player in the NBA. KG majority of his career spent time in the top 10. I acknowledged he's a skilled and good big man. So the "You're a hater" line is weaker than Gasol not going up strong after collecting an offensive rebound or recieving a pass inside. KG won league MVP and has been in the midst of MVP races before, Gasoft hasnt. How many ALL NBA teams has KG made? Lost count. KG won DPOY, Gasoft never came close. How many all defensive teams has KG made? Lost count but we can take this with a grain of salt given how some of these are selected. But you'd struggle trying to argue defense between the two.

But hey feel free to boost up his overseas resume.

And the whole both made a similar impact to thier respective teams bringin home a title? Review thier career prior to arrriving in L.A/Boston. Doesnt take a PhD to see who impacted the game and thier former teams more. Its not hard to understand who was a better player either.

NBA is the elite basketball league on Earth. Its the reason Gasoft came to America and remains here playing professional ball. KG dominated this league and put up a great career in the NBA. Gasoft career doesnt stack up. But I'm just hating and cant accept the fact that i L.A wins the title, it would give Gasoft 2 rings and that means something. Wait dont let me leave out his performance this season reg/post. That was cut the gap between the two. Cant exclude that. And lets factor or shall I say sit here and make up a scenerio where Gasoft in the next 10yrs wins 2-3 more rings, adds on stats to his overall career. That'll shorten the gap and make KG vs Gasoft comparable.

Maybe Jeff should create an ISH-Euro, so you argue who has the better euro career Gasoft or KG. Throw in some "by miles upon miles" and a couple "not even close!" while you're at it. See look, you have an argument you cant lose.
