It's a tough one. Whenever the Mavericks and Timberwolves play, Dirk and KG rarely guard each other. Give Dirk just an inch of daylight and that's enough for him to make the jumper. However, KG has some of the best inside moves in the league so when he's in the post, he could be impossible to stop. It's a toss-up.
you sound like a bitter loser. the only way Dirk is soft is if soft=white, in which case you're pathetic and a hater.
You always play the "you're a sore, bitter Suns fan card." It's getting old and it isn't true. I was down on Dirk being a finals MVP candidate all year, talking about how his style of play would never lead a team to a finals because his shot would go cold at some point.
I WAS RIGHT. I said it all year long, I swear, and I got flamed all year. This is before this years playoffs, after the 2005 playoffs where the Suns BEAT the Mavs. Bitter? Why play the bitter card now after I've been saying the same thing for over a year now?
Dirk is soft to me because Diaw, a 6'8'' 215lbs forward routinely pushed him around in the paint on offense. I call him soft after these playoffs because Tim Thomas stepped around him, backed him down and got in his head. Tim freaking Thomas? Brutal. If TT can do that imagine what KG could do. Dirk routinely got made to look like a fool by average PFs.
Dirk owns TT offensively and essentially embarassed him in that regard. Dirk also owns KG in a majority of offensive categories, unfortunately for him KG is 10004304838 times the defender he is. KG's game is also much more geared at a style that would do well in a one on one match.
PS. Dirk even said one on one Nash beat him most of the time. Nash said it was about even when they played. Would you take Nash over KG as well?
before dirk messes wit kg maybe he should try his hand on 2nd and 3rd tier pfs because he might even have trouble with some of those 1 on 1. If you cant stop you man in 1 on1 especially in the post you are in trouble.
Seriously.. have you people even watched basketball? haha
Dirk is always making KG look stupid.. Dirk averaged 30 points and swept KG in the playoffs.
I remember a game where the scores were tied.. only a couple seconds left ina game.. and Dirk is guarding KG.. he strips the ball from him and runs down the other end and scores on him. Game over.. I have games on tape where KG tried to guard dirk even with double team help and Dirk still scored 30 and beat him..
Bottom line is that Dirk is a winner and KG isn't. KG isn't in Dirk's league. Dirk does everything before KG does and Dirk is 2 years younger. Dirk got to the WCF a year before KG.. plus being 2 years younger.. that's 3 years total. Dirk gets to the Finals before KG.. same thing. You can say Dirk has a better team around him.. but KG doesn't make the players around him better, bottom line.
If you playing make it take it nash couldn't even beat me 1 on1 because he would never get the ball back because i would never miss. Just dunk, dunk, lay up all the way up to 21. And im only 6"7. Dirk is 7 foot and lost to nash. Either he was trying to be fair and didnt go down low or he is the softest 7 footer ever.
