Default Replace KG with Duncan on the Spurs

Do they still win 4 championships?
Is KG crowned the GOAT PF?

Or

Does Duncan lead the T Wolves to championships?

Might as well take the question farther.

Replace Barkley with Duncan on the Spurs

Replace Malone with Duncan on the spurs

Well, there is no way in hell that Duncan wins Minnesota a championship, but idk whether KG wins 4 or not. I'd say that most likely he does.

No way he wins four. He's nowhere near the offensive player that Duncan is. I'd honestly be surprised if they won one.

What? Their scoring averages and efficiencies are nearly identical in the playoffs and regular seasons during their primes. That literally makes no sense. Garnett was every bit the scorer duncan was. And his ability to anchor a defense was just as good too. Just look at what he's transformed this boston team into. These guys are neck and neck as individual players.

Duncan was a better on the ball scorer, KG was a better passer and off the ball player. I'd rather have Duncan as a scorer, but to say KG is "nowhere near" is a massive exaggeration.

Except for the fact that Barkley is a far better offensive player then KG and a better offensive player than Duncan

Would Duncan have a bodyguard like David Robinson early career?

I think Garnett is already the GOAT PF.

I'm surprised this isn't a KG5MVP thread.

Probably worse because Duncan fits in their system better and doesn't get injured as much.

And then we come to the harsh reality that none of these hypotheticals mean a thing and Duncan has 4 championships whiles Garnett only has one.

That's true, but even so you go from two top 10 offensive players (during their time period) and two of the three best defensive players to probably a top 2 or 3 (tough to say if Magic was better) offensive player in his peak and who at his best was an average defender, I think that's a pretty obvious choice. The gap between defense is huge compared to the gap between the their offense. I'd say that during Barkleys very best year he was probably equal to Duncan or KG.maybe
