most of KGs big games came in a small 2-3 year window. tims numbers have been consistent from start to today.
Kevin Garnett vs. Tim Duncan | Basketball-Reference.com
Right, just like I said. KG has better head to head stats with Tim. Does that make him better?

Thats simply not true. I dont think youve watched much of him except against the Spurs.

People may say, “Garnett worked with inferior talent.” Well, did he really? Let’s evaluate.
Over their careers, Nowitzki has had a player on his team elected to an All-Star Game seven times. Garnett has had a teammate elected to an All-Star Game on 16 occasions. On the way to Garnett’s only championship, he shacked up in Boston with two other Hall of Famers, both still in their prime. (Paul Pierce and Ray Allen) Both Pierce and Allen were elected to the All-Star Game that season and the Celtics were hyped as the preseason title favorites. People forget but it was Pierce–not Garnett–elected Finals MVP. The Celtics were the league favourite from day one, and they never looked back.



Who’s Had The Better Career: Dirk Nowitzki Or Kevin Garnett?

Wow, your words moved me just now. I officially change my opinion based on how eloquent your words are and how thorough your counter points are......WHY can't you accept Dirk for what he was? A fantastic player, world class even. But a sieve on defense. C'mon man, it's pretty well known around the league, among the players, coaches design plays that go at him all the time, fans know it. He's probably Hall of Fame but your glasses def have a pinkish hue if you think he's adequate defensively.

When you say "he's probably hall of fame" that says it all about your perspective. Discounted.
