No freakin way he's ahead of someone like Bill Walton as a prefect example.

I don't think any Spurs fans stay up at night worried about Dirk being considered better than Duncan at anything other than maybe yodeling or eating schnitzel.
Dirk is a better scorer than both of your examples. 6th best all time! !

Dirk should be very close to Wilt or pass him this season. May not get to Jordan though.

If he scores totals like last season he won't pass wilt. He's going to need a 2015-16 type season to get there.

Depends on how many games, at his average last year he would need 80 games. I think he can up the average a tad though if he wants to.

Current ALL time top NBA scorers.

Lebron will pass Dirk, so he will most likely finish his career at #6 if he goes through next season.
