Default [Prime] Duncan vs [Prime] Kobe

who would you rather have in your franchise and build your team upon?

1) In their primes
2) In their peaks
3) Career as a whole


this is not a thread about who is the better player, but who would give your team the better chance of winning the championship/s for as many times as possible.

Kobe in his prime because he plays like he's still in it and it may be true.

Career as a whole?....Kobe as well.

1. Duncan for sure

2. Duncan. Duncan played about 12 quality/elite years. This will be Kobe's 13th. Not a big enough gap in longevity yet to trump the fact that Duncan was superior in many of those prime vs prime years.

I have a hard time picking Duncan for the simple fact, Kobe has been ass rapping his team in the playoffs his entire career.

It's amazing how Kobe started his career before Duncan and to date; he is still a superstar and Duncan is a shell of his former self.

There is no way Duncan ends up higher then Kobe on the all-time ladder.

Uhm Duncan hasn't been elite since about 2008.
Don't let the All-Star nominees fool you to think otherwise.

Kobe would sell about 10x times more tickets and jerseys than boring duncan. That alone should be a reason for any owner to build around some1 like that.

Basketball wise both are great choices, though I'm sticking with Bryant.
