Peak vs peak?

Dirk. His 2011 performances was better than anything C-Webb done. Dirk was on fire and couldn't miss a shot. He was great all year, but he activated god mode in the playoffs.

C-Webb, unfortunately, wasn't really clutch. Dirk was also consider a choker prior to the 2011 season, but the Mavs teams always C-Webb was more fun to watch, and you could build a great team around him. It wasn't like he wasn't capable of winning a championship (Kings 2002), but injuries did do him in.

But Dirk ever since his third year until now, his team always had 50+ wins. C-Webb wasn't the same case. It could be a little unfair since you have take account coaching and other teammates, but a team with Dirk had more success. So, I would take Dirk to win.

But that Kings 2002 team was better than the Mavs 11 team, and is one the best teams to never win it all.

I'm a big fan of Chris Webber, but I'd probably have to take Dirk Nowitzki here, of whom I'm also a fan. Webber was nasty good, but I feel like he could be stopped or thwarted to some extent easier than Dirk. At his best, Dirk Nowitzki was essentially unstoppable. Once he had that look in his eye, you knew it was over.

I don't know that Webber ever fully hit a peak. But he was certainly more talented. Sure, Dirk's run was better than any one thing Webber has done, but that's not the same.


This is actually hard for me. Webber was better when they were both playing, but Dirk kept growing. He never had a team as good as the 01-04 Kings (shame that officiating and an injury ended 3 potential runs), but he's consistently had a good team around him, made for him to succeed...


I don't know. Dirk got it done and was consistent. Webber was kinda up and down and didn't set a standard for himself to play at. So I guess I have to take Dirk.

I would also take CWebb for the all-around game. But late-career-clutch-Dirk is lethal.

I don't believe CWebb hit his prime. He played on bad teams pre-prime, and then got hurt during what was probably his prime.

Taking Dirk by default.

Webber was great, but the guy just wasn't clutch at all. Calling time outs in the national championship game when they didn't have any. Air balling clutch shots in Sacramento. Bibby was their go to guy at the end of games. So I'm going with Dirk. Webber was the man though. I wish he would've stayed and played out his career in Golden State.

Webber had a nice all around game, but he was super overrated as a scorer. Thought he was much better than he really was. Dirk kills him in that one category enough to easily get the nod.
