-Duncan is the proven winner

-Duncan is a bit more fundamentally sound

-Duncan's defense is at worst, equal to KG's

Yeah if you call Duncan a center he'll whine about it and cry to coach pop and the spurs to change it. Guess he doesnt wanna be compared to great centers who play the game like he did. Wants to be compared to guys who actually played like Pfs like Barkley and Malone. Most egotistical thing I ever saw TD do, I was shocked. He is still my fav big man but I was shocked

It may be a little easier to build around Duncan's style, but Duncan's greater team success also has much to do with his GM never conducting an illegal trade that cost the Spurs 5 consecutive first round picks. Just to get Joe Smith a large payday.
Duncan's a better player on both ends. Garnett is versatile but not dominant in any one category while Duncan dominates the inside like no other in the last decade except Shaq. But Shaq's post defense was never on par with Duncan's.

Since when was Charles Barkley a good defender. Even Barkley will tell you he was average at best on the defensive end. So, because Boozer blocks Duncan ONCE, Duncan's crappy on the post? Mehmet Okur destroyed Yao in the playoffs. Does that mean Okur's defense > Yao's offense?

This has probably already been said in this thread, but Duncan is a Center, while Garnett is a Power Forward.
