Playoff 2011 Dirk or 2019 Kawhi?
 

 
Both were on a tear

Kawhi particularly was more recent in memory and being from Toronto I watched every playoff game

That Toronto team was lost asf without Kawhi , especially in the Philly series , no 1 could hit sh*t , Kawhi being the focus of Philly's great defense , played 1 of the best series of all time to me imo

Dirk did his thing for sure , Mavs beat amazing teams but I think kawhi was that n*gga that year

Kawhi carrying the raptors is a false narrative. Laughably so. He also LITERALLY had a second allstar. Not the same situations. Duncan in 03, Hakeem in 95, and 11 Dirk are comparable.

But Dirk, and it ain't close. At all.

Carried nah, but he took them to a place they had never been able to get to, and his efficiency was some off the charts crazy stuff all time. Went through all the tough teams and won woulda coulda shoulda. If DeMar had stayed they wouldn't have sniffed the finals.

Kawhi Leonard now has 11 games with at least 30 points in the 2019 NBA Playoffs. The only players in postseason history with more such games prior to the Finals are Michael Jordan (13 in 1989, 12 in 1990) and Hakeem Olajuwon (12 in 1995).
Dirk took out everybody. He had a full season just k*lling everything, then went through a tough west, and took out a super team with no all-star on his side.
Hard to compare, and i respect both, but Dirk is the name lebron only fans hate to hear.

Yall gotta stop that it aint even close stuff lol.

Demar did actually almost sniff the finals, except he almost did it against LBJ, the year Cleveland won it. Kawhi had a deeeeeep team, including a second allstar and played an icu squad in the finals. Dirk, as the only allstar, played a healthy defending champ kobe and pau, Durant and Westbrook a year before they made the finals too, and a fresh Heatles big 3....lol, there's no comparison.

Im not comparing, you are.

Two different eras

Two different circumstances

You posting this repeating the same thing i said about Dirk trying to create an argument but agreeing with me at the same time.


and Demar wasn't going to do anything and you know it

You can't compare the two situations..

Kawhi had a great playoff run and caught some lucky breaks no pun intended.

Dirk went through a gauntlet of the best the NBA had to offer that year.

Kawhi had a great run.. but Dirk had a legendary run.. I mean you made a thread about a run from 10+ years ago.. that's gotta be saying something.

I’d say Dirk just because of the comp alone.

But 2019 Kawhi is clearly an all time great run, like literally some MJ/Kobe sh*t.

There won’t be another run like Dirks because all these n*ggas on the same team.

It’s up to someone like Trae or Luka to make a run against a few decent teams then a super team in the conference finals then possibly the finals

Dirk for all the reasons stated above. It's not like his Mavs team sucked and he willed them to win. They were tough veterans who really knew how to play offensively but just didn't have the defense to win most years.


While I respect Kawhi's chip it wasn't against a healthy squad. Steph was dealing with that ankle which is a factor most people forget.

Dirk. Iím a Toronto dude and in my unbiased opinion the competition wasnít as serious for Kawaii as it was for Dirk.

Grateful as sh*t we got Kawaii when we did though lol.

For years the Raptors issues were a lack of three-point shooting and they had no one to defend big wings.

That's why Paul Pierce k*lled us every series, so did Oubre, and Johnson.

Leonard really just fixed all their flaws by removing DeRozan's spacing issues and adding someone to defend big wings.

Danny Green was very important too since he's probably the best shooter Toronto had in the Lowry era that was playable

Dirk. Lakers- Kobe(defending champs), OKC-baby Russ harden and Durant, then the heat- lebron and wade (champs the next year) .

I'm sorry, it don't get much more epic than that.

Kawhi was great, but Dirks run is in the convo as literally THE greatest playoff-finals run for an individual star. They made the newly formed super-team that everyone was terrified of look like children and they swept the defending 2x champion (who does that?? )
