Pre-Season, I'll take Stromile Swift. Off-season, you take Pau Gasol. :troll:
I have a hard time with him. I often rank Dirk #5 but I'm not sure. That may be because I've seen him so much and he was in an era with the true elite. While he was playing, Webber was genuinely a monster (and better than he was) and one of the best I've seen. But he lasted and only got better over the years, eventually winning that title.
Petit played 11 years, right? He was an all-star every year and, if I remember correctly, he was 1st Team All-NBA his first 10 years, and 2nd Team his last year. Two MVP's and a title. He's got huge numbers too.
He and Dirk would fight for #5, tho I might lean towards Pettit, this minute...but McHale would be at #7.
