Going to the finals show that he's legit. If winning a ring is the standard then Durant or Lebron isn't a legit 1st option too.

I thought you made a great post up until this point. Both of these players are legit superstars and near unguardable on their positions. Why shouldn't the MVP and the DPOY of last year not be mentioned in the same breath?

Because the DPOY was only not given MVP because Rose's team was better. If it's an individual award, wins shouldn't be so important in the voting process.

I liken Dwight to Bill Russell.

Somehow the fact that Bill won so many titles, his game was probably not as complete and yet he gets a pass from criticism (which is Dwight is not).

Russell is an average offensive player, but being the best defender more than makes up for it. He has the ability to take over games. Do you know of his 30-40 game 7 performance? Dwight doesn't have any of the intangibles Russell had.

nelson was missing up until like game 3 of the finals. turk was a good playmaker, and he had a ton of shooters, but i dont think that team was stacked. tbh i think they were fortunate to get past the cavaliers, the just happened to mach up well with them.

even when you factor in how many free throws he takes a game, on a per possession basis, he is still the 6th most efficeint scorer in the league. he is sixth in TS% at 61%. bear in mind league average is around 54%. so he is very efficeint.

i understand that howard isnt up to par as a go-to scorer as some of the guys you mentioned, and i you imply that the fact that he gets easy buckets is a bad thing, well i disagree. a player who can get easy buckets but is only a good go-to scorer (like howard) is just as valuable on offense, as a guy who is a great go-to scorer, but cant get easy buckets as regularly (lets say d-rose for example). when you factor in his defense, i dont think theres an arguement for him being outside the top 5 in the league.

It's worth noting that the OP also thinks Kobe>Jordan, so take his opinions with a grain of salt.

He still has some areas he needs to improve, but no I wouldn't say that he is overrated.
