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.

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.

He made it to two as the main guy and was robbed off of his potential first chip by the refs gifting wade fts like they were candy
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.

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.

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.

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

Because elite offense > defense
And Dirk had an unstoppable move
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.

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

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

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.

Malone played with a perennial all-star HOF PG his entire career and DIRK still outperformed him
Half of Dirk's career he was getting bodied up by smaller players

The We Believe Warriors really showed yall what was up with him until he decided to man up and get in the post a little bit.

Until he did that he was getting hounded by small forwards.

DIRK is better franchise player too. KG missed the playoffs 3 straight years in his prime. DIRK never did.

From 2004 - 2019 when DIRK retired, he had another all-star on his roster twice (2006 & 2009)
We know the Mavericks were a better ran organization than the Timberwolves. Didn't the TWolves lose 4 first round draft picks over JOE SMITH
