According to Ball Don't Lie… KG falls behind only Tim Duncan on the list of greatest players this decade.
KG takes the cake over Kobe
by a hair due to his defense, an area that isn't always accurately documented
His stats, though, are pretty awesome. Garnett averaged over
20 points, 10 rebounds, and five assists for six years, only Larry Bird has
come close to that, and you know damn well Bird was defending or blocking and
stealing (combined, usually over three blocks/steals per game) like KG. Pity it
took Garnett until he was 31 to get a team worth shouting about.
I'll buy TD above KG. but how about Dirk Nowitzki above LeBron? That'll buy the BDL guys a bit of hate in the comments.
