Hmm interesting thread. Nope I don't think Garnett's overrated. If there was anything negative to be said about his game, it would definitely be his performance in the clutch. He gets too unselfish at times. And loves to mix his inside-outside game too much. When it works it's great, but when it doesn't, he should prioritize down low rather than try to get his rhythm from outside. I also don't think Odom and Gasol took right into Garnett with ease and dominance. In Game 5, Garnett got in foul trouble early and that was because they lacked Perk in the lineup. Garnett had to take the responsibility of defending both Odom and Gasol, who for once, took it aggressive to the basket. Gasol is soft period. Do you ever see Garnett flop? I didn't think so. Nonetheless for what Garnett lacks in the clutch, he makes up tremendously for his defensive intensity and leadership. Garnett, overrated? No freakin' way. This guy's a future hall of famer.
With regards to comparisons to Pierce, I never thought there was any. Was there? Anyway Pierce deserved the MVP 100%. And I congratulate him. After 7 long years of following his career since his breakout season, I'm very happy for him.
Tim Duncan is a great great player. My bold statement for this post would have to be that, at least for this season, Garnett was better than Duncan. Overall of course would go to Duncan hands down.
Start fresh under new management! We don't need any more unproven veterans! Go for youth!
Dwight's rebounding alone makes him a marvel, plus his size, quickness, athelicism, upper body strength, agility is all on a different that no one in the NBA is at. Dwight doesn't have much "skill" but he gets by averaging over 20 ppg and over 13 rebounds. The man is a BEAST, and once he learn those skills he has the potential to averaged 28-30 ppg and 15 rebounds, which would make him a MVP.
Amare is an okay rebounder, and not such a good defender. Offensively he's the best center in the NBA.
Oden won't be better than Dwight, well I'm still stuck from Oden's terrible summer league/preseason preformance.
