Duncan is the 5th best C of all time. Barkley is the best PF.

You're about to rustle some serious jimmies.

I've ALWAYS thought of Duncan as a center. It's what he is.

Not sure, but KG would be just as great in Popovich's system.

But you also said Parker was the best Spur in 07, even though he has 0 case...and I'm pretty certain you started watching basketball after the decision (you're a Heat fan, correct?)

Unless you're Shaq or Yao Ming, you're probably going to have an interchangeable skillset...and play a bit of both positions.

Duncan is unanimously considered the greatest PF ever, and that's where he played for his entire prime. If we're calling him a C because of height and play-style, why aren't we calling Barkley an SF or Jordan an SF? Because they played the PF and SG.

He's still a top ten player regardless. Labeling him a C to fit your agenda doesn't change anything.

I choose to believe that Kobe Bryant is not a PF

I have no agenda. What position he is labelled as has 0 impact on anything.

You mean your agenda. He's a center loser. Still the 8th best player of all time though.

Make the case then. Stop the stupid one-liners.

If Duncan is a C why isn't Barkley an SF?

Why are Duncan stans so touchy about him being a Center? He's played the "Center" position for most of his career. If the Center on the opposing team is guarding you, and you are guarding the Center on the opposing team, you are a center. The end.

Duncan is a center.

At one point he called Kobe top 5...then again out of the top 5...then he laughed at Kobe being called the Player of the Decade.

He's called Duncan the greatest PF ever numerous times. There's a difference.

Also, Barkley and Dirk are PFs, and Sloan coached arguably the GOAT PF...That's why I used what they said...you know, because they have a knowledge of that stuff.

Stop picking and choosing what points to address. Did Duncan play the C with Nazr and Rasho? You clearly were watching back then, so you should have a very clear opinion on it.
