Kemp and Barkley the best bar none. Any prime version of those two would destroy any PF in the game today. I miss those old Western Conference races.

Amen

Kemp was the Best Style Dunker among Big Forwards and Barkley: lead the league in dunks years before.

Kemp was smarter than people think: Not only was he The Best Defender of the Sonics (DRT will agree) but also he knew we wasn`t as talented and an unselfish player that shot lesser because he knew he wasn`t as skilled to over shoot.

He was the best defender by far. He made teams scared of the middle from a PF position, pretty impressive. I agree that he played unselfish and realized he wasn't talented to overshoot but that changed in 96. I think he knew in 96 that he was the best basketball player in the world bar none. He was just very humble even though his personality seemed cocky because of his passion for the game and his competitiveness. He asked for all the responsibility, he wanted late game shots not dunks. His post game skill and footwork was unmatched that year. I laugh at the ones who say he couldn't shoot, what did they do? stop watching his career from 95 on because it wasn't on youtube? In 96 his fadeaway from 13-20 ft mark was ungaurdable. His baseline spin was he fastest move in the nba. He was by far the best at rim finisher in the league, either hand tightly gaurded tremendous foul and he is still completing the lay up or dunk. There is a reason Jordan was giving him props. Jordan doesn't give props to younger guys, rarely. He hit clutch freethrows, you couldn't hack a shaq him. He got constant And 1's. His turn around, his use of the bank, the killer crossover at 6'10, his jump stop pump fake, his hang in the air and wait for you to come down and hit a shot in your face move, this guy had it all! This was rare air best of Jordan and Kobe level type of trickery on the opponent and having too much of an arsenal to stop. Only less than 20 players ever to play the game really had ice cold blood in their veins and that killer instinct that probably only kobe, Duncan, Wade, and Paul Pierce have today and Kemp was one of those. Kemp was the best player in the world in that season no matter what anybody tries to say, Jordan just had slightly better team. The best part about it he still never overshot and always remained a team player.

Not sure if serious.

Kemp was a RIDICULOUS talent, as that video shows, but let's get real.

From 96-98 he upped his overall game from what you see on youtube of Kemps dunks to what you would see from a legend who had a whole arsenal of tricks. There's a reason why Malone didn't make any finals untill kemp was shipped and the Sonics went down.

He wasn`t better than Barkley, Malone or Duncan

But he was in the level at one point he was almost as good as McHale or Webber. Also don`t forget Derrick Coleman.

U Will se How Easy for Barkley to Dominate the 2-Point Region. He would shoot fades and straight up shots with no Jump...ala Bird-like. The speciality of Barkley was Post Play and Mid Range Play

Kemp was the Best Defender of the Sonics. I always said this and ofcourse DRT agrees (Payton was just the trash talker, solid defender) but not the anchor defensively, that was Kemp

Barkley, Kemp, and Malone all won and lost to each other multiple times, he was definitely as good or better at one point. The others are different. Webber got shitted on by Kemp when they did see each other. Mchale don't remember them battling. Duncan is a whole other case. I think Duncan prime vs Kemp prime would be the most epic battle ever. Two kings of efficiency going at each other.

why dont these fans of retired players like barkley and jordan get with the times and give up trying to prove how good they are

we know how good they were.... barkley was the 3rd or 4th best pf ever. top 25 player all time

jordan was arguably the goat....

no argument here. pick a new favorite player for god sake... stop living in the past like some 40 year old single overweight loser

tired of your kobe hating threads and 5 barkley youtube videos every day
