Dirk seemed better than KG when it counted to be honest

Dirk is the reason journeymen got a show called all the smoke and they celebrate making the 2nd round

Stak was a baller though he just had a terrible attitude which caused him to a journeyman but he got buckets for SA, Charlotte, Indiana, and of course GS. Matt Barnes on the other hand I’m not really sure what he was good at I didn’t even know he was on that Magic team and didn’t care for him when he went to the Lakers.

This the perfect example of how people undervalue defense. As a big one of your jobs is rim protection, Wade saw and exploited Dallas's lack of interior defense. They lost because they had nobody to lock the paint up, that's on Dirk.
That's that's sh*t that burns slow

KG never wanted to be the dominate scorer. He doesn’t get that much heat for it because he’s never in that all-time discussion.

Truthfully, I’d go KG over Dirk, but OP makes a valid point.

They did. Mavs and Wolves both gave KG and DIRK sh*t supporting cast tbh, especially if you compare them to the tarnished legacy losers in today's league.
Dirk had Steve Nash and Finley then terry, Kidd, peja and chandler

Dirk always had a great supporting cast

Nah B. I was looking at random playoff seedings from the past and the KG Twolves had the best record in the NBA. Who was their second best player Troy Hudson lol.

No. From 2004 - 2019 he played with another all-star twice (2006 and 2009).

I can name a bunch of over the hill guys that played with KG in Minnesota too.

Their supporting casts were similar most years.

You are underrating 2 things, the Joe Smith fiasco took away all of Minnys 1sts and the owner was cheap. Cuban eas always willing to spend and tinker with the team. No one ever say Glen Taylor one of the best owners in sports. Minny couldnt get free agents, keep players, or draft.

Look at Minny post KG, 1 playoff appearance.... Look at Dallas post Dirk, ready to contend.

So let's if ignore dirk while k.g was one and done and was basically get the choker moniker before he joined the celtics.

That all changed when both k.g and dirk got a ring. sh*t dirk took down, Kobe, Durant and LeBron in one playrun. sh*t k.g missed the playoffs in his prime

K.g playoff criticism is because he only made it past the first round once with the wolves. And then he got destroyed by Shaq, Karl, Malone, Gary Payton, Kobe Lakers. The very same Lakers that got backdoored swept by the pistons in the finals.


Dirk has destroyed k.g every time they played. I don't care how great k.g defense is, but he never beat Dirk or Tim Duncan in the playoffs. Dirk at least beat Tim Duncan in a playoff series.



Destroyed KG every time they played but KG has better head to head stats and the record is 20-17 Dirk

Dirk cinderella run in 2011 made people forget all the times he choked in the playoffs
Kg would have 2 rings if pau and kobe didn't take more free throws than the whole celtics team

And Dirk would’ve had 2 rings if Wade didn’t take the amount of free throws he did compared to the whole Mavs team too.

Overall I think kg was better but not by much, very close. Durk had a few great years which makes everyone forget when he wasn't as good. Kg was consistently a beast just did have a team until boston

The whole Dirk didn't play with all stars in 2011 narrative was always a reach. Chandler was on the olympic team for a reason. Marion was a jack of all trades player, that was a past all star. Some think he should be in the HOF. Kidd was still kidd, who gives a sh*t if he made the all star team that year lol. He brought intangible sh*t to the squad, and his improved outside shot came in handy. Terry was always a wildcard, but one of the better instant offense type players around at the time.

2 things can be true, Dirk was amazing in 2011 obviously. I stay with my stance of thinking it's disrespectful to sh*t on supporting cast that win.

A 7 foot n*gga with a fade away is an anomaly
He's going to get buckets. You locked in on scoring only. You even look at the rest of the sheet?
Add in he played in a more stable and better managed system, hence the success while lacking the tools kg had

Don't be a revisionist
That's bogus
