That playoff run saw Dirk run through the most elite teams in the league, sweeping the Lakers and taking a considerably worse Mavs squad to the Finals is already impressive enough. Bron has no excuses for 2011, he was considered to be at his physical apex with a way better roster than what Dirk was working with. Tell me when KG actually lead his team through a juggernaut conference with a roster of that mediocrity
That was a great run no doubt, but I just cannot put Dirk over KG. KG was just SO much better defensively and was close enough on offense without a three point shot. KG is the only player in history to reach at least 25,000 points, 10,000 rebounds, 5,000 assists, 1,500 steals & 1,500 blocks in his career, the only player to average at least 20 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists per game for 6 consecutive seasons.KG is one of four players to win MVP and DPOY during his career. (Michael Jordan, Hakeem Olajuwon, and David Robinson).
In 2004, KG won MVP averaging 24/14/5/2 on 50% + led his team in ALL 5 stat categories. Also, was THREE votes away from being unanimous MVP.
KG in '08 averaged 19 & 9 on 53% while being the DPOY + 3rd in MVP voting. He ancored Boston's defense in which they allowed 9
KG in Game 6 of the 2008 Finals: 26 points, 14 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 steals on 10/18 FG. Celtics win by +39. Should've won Finals MVP.
The Celtics in their prime years: 2008: Finals Apperance w/ KG 2009: 2nd Round Exit w/o KG 2010: Finals Apperance w/ KG
Kevin Garnett's MVP season: 24ppg/14rpg/5apg/1spg/2bpg on 50% fg...just look at those stats lmao he was such an elite rebounder and passer he was the best passing PF of the 2000s
Dirk Nowitzki's MVP season: 26ppg/7rpg/3apg/0.7spg/1bpg on 48% fg...you mean to tell me that KG wasn't better
