I think if you put TD on the Lakers with Shaq instead of Kobe, they win more than 5 chips. Think about it- most dominant front court of all time, with Phil, plus they never break up because Tim's personality allows him to get along with Shaq's ego.
Therefore TD is better than Kobe.
Am I doing this right?
No, you're missing the logic part. Like saying Chris Paul and John Stockton would be the best backcourt ever, when really it wouldn't be very good.
Shaq and Tim would clog each other's space, make it easy for the defense to simply stuff bodies in the paint and clutter everything up.
But that isn't what you were going for, I know.
