Dirk > KG. Superior title-run, won more games, dominated head2head, better at scoring, way better at scoring in the clutch. Frankly I’m not sure how people get so hung up on the aspect that KG was a much better defender than Dirk and extrapolate it to mean some fuzzy math equation where Dirk’s offense and KG’s defense had equal value when the reality is that Dirk’s shortcomings merely necessitated a Tyson Chandler while KG needed 2 other prime or barely post-prime HoFers and a baby Rondo just to achieve the exact same record in the Finals.

KG might of been the more complete player, but in the playoffs im going with Dirk.

The reason why I put KG over Dirk is because of the defense. 9x All Defensive 1st Team appearances for KG compared to Dirk's 0. KG was a two way player, Dirk was a scorer.

Might as well say Dirk > TD since he was a much better scorer than him too.

You're over valuing scoring and under valuing defense, passing, rebounding, etc.

Talk all this stuff about KG needing hall of famers but Dirk had Steve Nash for half of his career.

KG made it to two finals and was robbed of one.

How many finals did Dirk make it to? Off top I only remember one.

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.

If anything kg is lucky to have that one ring. He joined up with 2 other stars to get it, Dirk didnt have any co stars in 2011

When the Celtics won in 08 it was against a Lakers team that didnt have Bynum and trevor Ariza. Yet all you hear from Celtics fans is how they didnt have Perkins for game 7 in 2010. Perk was getting dominated by Bynum and Sheed was doing a better job anyways

9x All-D KG got swept by DIRK in the playoffs

DIRK dropped 33 & 16 on 53-73-89 on KG's head in that series

DIRK always won a title without another all-star or All-NBA player and had a legendary run. KG did not.

There is a decent gap between Timmy and KG dummy...saying Dirk is better than KG is not the same as saying Dirk is better than KG. Timmy was a rock regular season and playoffs all thru, can't say the same of KG....

KG HISTORICALLY didn’t have the good players and coaching that Dirk had.

Prime Steve Nash, Michael Finely, antwan Jamison, Jerry Stackhouse, Jason Terry, Josh Howard, Jason Kidd, Peja, Tyson Chandler.

KG had who? Sprewell, Sam, Ray, Rondo, Pierce.

KG was the better all around player

That's not a fair comparison, KG is one of the greatest defensive players of all time, Dirk is a terrible defender. KG was a good scorer, Dirk was a great one. So KG is doing both at a high level, Dirk is only doing 1.

All Dirk had to do was score. KG had to do everything on both ends. Minnesota had some of the worst rosters in the NBA during KG's prime, Dirk always had a solid team around him
