NFT: Kobe, Duncan, & Garnett

SFGFNCGiantsFan : 2/14/2020 7:30 pm
It was announced all will be entering Springfield this fall as part of the 2020 HOF class.

Who was the best among the 3? I'd go TD, Kobe, & then KG in that order. I'd put all 3 in top 20 all time.
Kobe first

Duncan 2nd, Garnett 3rd. Top 20 seems a bit high for Garnett

Agreed with all of this.
I always thought it was fun to look at it this way

Wade was better than Kidd, Nash, & AI. I'd still put TD over Kobe. Dirk was better than AI.
Mine was in no particular order

Sorry I'm misunderstanding. You're saying "we have the 50 best players of all time"... as in who are those 50?

No Iím saying NBA already came out with 50 in the 90s. Since that list came out, name 10 more players to join them.
IMO - Lebron is # 1 - next ten  
GiantsUA : 2/15/2020 8:29 am : link
# 2 or 3 all time.

Curry  
UConn4523 : 2/15/2020 8:41 am : link
is better than Nash and Kidd, IMO. Needs a few more years for some of the stats but bigger overall impact than those two.
Order:  
JB_in_DC : 2/15/2020 8:59 am : link
1. Duncan
2. KG
3. Kobe

Duncan's postseason performances really were incredible. If I'm starting a team with one of these 3 as a rookie I'm taking Duncan.

KG was a complete player who got screwed by years of bad teams in Minnesota from being an even more transcendent star. All worked out in the end though.

Kobe gets boosted a lot historically by his self-mythologizing and the rings argument. Of course the first three were primarily won by a guy who at his peak was better than any of the three were listing here. Kobe is a distant third here for me.

The Celts are retiring KG's No. 5 next year, he wasn't there that long, but he certainly helped them to a championship!
(Celts should have had two....oh well).
As a Celts fan, I appreciated what KG brought to that team. I will also say the Celts have too many retied numbers,
I mean Don Nelson, c'mon man.
Top 3  
TyreeHelmet : 2/15/2020 12:48 pm : link
For me itís Duncan and itís not close. Then Kobe and 3rd Garnett. KG was a great player but I think heís a tier below these guys.

I can make an argument that Duncan is a top 5 player of all time. Legendary player.

And this is laughable.
McGrady over Wade is one of the more absurd

things Iíve read here lately. BBIs favorite cliche, ďItís not even closeĒ, is not even close, haha.
TMAC over Wade?  
SFGFNCGiantsFan : 2/15/2020 1:44 pm : link
GTFO with that.
Wade had the MUCH  
Enzo : 2/15/2020 3:22 pm : link
better career - but McGrady at his peak was a monster. Just as good as peak Wade - and maybe even a smidge better. The problem was McGrady's peak didn't last all that long and he was cooked before he was 30. His career likely looks a lot different if his best teammates (yao and Grant Hill) have better injury luck or him and Vince stay in Toronto together.
and while KG  
Enzo : 2/15/2020 3:23 pm : link
was a great player - Duncan and Kobe were on another level.

Ohhh got it. Thanks for clarifying. Can you link me to that list officially from the NBA? Every time I type in top 50 NBA players I get like a million different lists from random websites.
