[QUOTE]Dirk is top 15 for me. His ability to lead a team almost singlehandedly for 13 seasons is impressive. What's more, his loyalty to his organization sets him apart from this new generation of stars. From this fading generation, only Duncan, Kobe, Dirk and Pierce are finals mvp's that have spent their entire careers with one team. Dirk has had nowhere near as much help as those players.

Top 15 , really , where did you have him before this. I had him around 40-50 , now ill put him between 25-30. I think everyone needs to relax , i mean the loser that started this thread said LeBron was better than MJ. Everyone needs to relax , top 20 is rare air , Dirk is not a Top 20 Player all time. There are many things you need to look at , first off its his first , again lets relax. Second lets look at who he beat , the Heat absolutely choked and just werent that good of a team. The C's were bang ed up , old , slow , coming off a trade that the players took to heart ( even though Perk is very overrated ) , didnt play D like were used and our 4th qr O really came back to hurt/haunt us. The Bulls really blew their series and i have got much respect for Rose after watching those games. The Heat got almost every 50/50 call in all their series. Amazing the NBA handed them this finals and they blew it. The Heat got all the key calls in the paint even though the Bulls have a better , more talented , physical front court. The Bulls know they gave that away , looking back they know if they kept hitting the Heat , they would break. Rose played 1 against 4 on times , besides Deng nobody showed up on the O end. Get Rose a real # 2 scoring option , get rid of Boozer the loser , keep your core and you have 1-2 rings in 2-4 years. Give Rose a Landry , West type PF and they have a real squad. The Bulls had the best D on the year , Boozer especially couldnt defend the Pick n Roll to save his life. Thibb's did a great job and deserves a lot of credit , aagin i really believe you subtract Boozer , add any better player at that spot and their for real. Again lets take a deep ahhh their we go and look at who the Mavs just beat. James disappeared and was a total bust. He can win 2-3 rings but will never be respected again after this. LOL They actually started Bibby for a few games , besides James who didnt show up. The Heat had no real options on O or D. Dirk went 1 for w/e in the first half while Terry exploded for what 18-19? Where was James then when all the mojo was going towards the Mavs? The Heat had no pg , no low post game at all , no 4th qr o at all. Its tough to give take the Heat seriously after that showing , doesnt matter what they did to us or Chitown. They mailed it in during the finals , made excuses , flopped , cried , bitched , moaned , made fun of a sick Dirk ... again lets relax here. Dirk just put himself inside the top 30-35 players of all time! Just take a look at who he is ahead of , some great great players.
