I'm taking McHale 10 out of 10 times.

Best post player I've ever seen....Hakeem maybe, but McHale had like 50 moves and counter moves for those moves.

Dirk, although Kevin beats him in post-up play and defense.

Difficult to tell - McHale played with 2 other great players for most if not all of his career, and Dirk never really has. I'll take McHale though.

i love mchale....but he is simply not on dirk's level.

the first thing people are going to talk about is mchale's defense. this is hugely over-rated. i grew up watching the celtics play and while mchale was a decent defender......he was not a good defender and was marginally better than dirk if it all.

dirk is also a far superior rebounder in the playoffs.

mchale could not take over games in the 4th qtr and has not even close to the crunch time player dirk is. i hate to critique one of my favorites in mchale....but i have a feeling people on this board are going to seriously over-rate certain aspects of his game.

Dirk's a better player overall but takes too many difficult shots and the rest of my team will just stand around and twiddle their thumbs while Dirk sets up free throw line extended and dribbles the ball into the ground to get off a one footed fadeaway.

Getting the ball into the post with McHale would make the offense flow easier, could create open shots due to double teams, or easy scores.

Plus I have no questions about Kevin's toughness/aggressiveness.

This is why I choose Kevin.

Erm... the question was not who you'd rather have on your team but who the better player is, so..?

The question isn't that easy for me....Dirk might be a better individual player but McHale was a better team player.
