Duncan has feasted on the weakest era of bigs in NBA history. Surrounded by stability. Who are the bigs besides Shaq he's faced that are great? Yao, Ben Wallace?
Wait so you do admit that Kobe has been washed on defense
Yeah the big man game has been "weak", but he still has to compete, and he has done well against BG, Randolph, Nowitzki, Aldridge, Gasol brothers.
KG is the same age as Duncan and has been worse than Duncan the past couple years facing the same competition.
