Default Is Duncan overrated?

Just Kobe, Lebron and Shaq's. Specifically in that order.


Discuss.

I think Duncan gets overrated when people claim he was a better (not greater) player than Shaq.

Otherwise he's a top 7-10 player all-time IMO.

Who is talking? Was he better than kobe? Zero debate yes. Shaq (there's an argument for shaq due to peak, but overall not wrong). Better than Bird? At this point I think he's made a case but you could call that overrated.

Is he a top 5-10 player? No question. If you're hearing people rank him higher than 5 then yes he's entering into the discussion. As it is I never see him over 5 so no, he's not overrated. He is for the most part still mostly underrated, and by a lot from some posters here.

Duncan did pretty much everything better then Shaq. He was a much better defender, better offensive player all Shaq did was dunk and do a hook shot and Duncan did not take games off like Shaq while having no one near as good as Kobe on his team.

His peak is really underrated, but his post-prime is very overrated. Career-wise I think he's rated pretty fairly.

His post prime is about as good as anyone ever, maybe even goat worthy. It's him and Kareem for best post prime. Am I missing anyone?
