Kblaze, do you think Tim Duncan has hit the "All-Time Elite" level? His best season was 25/13, which is merely average compared to other all-time greats at his position (PF/C).
Elite like Miachel, Kareem, and Wilt at the top of their games? No. But Tim at the top of his game and Karl at the top of his....Tim is both a better offensive and defensive player. More individually dominant. Easily. The 4 rings dont hurt either for the "Legacy matters most" types.
I really see no comparison between the two. Tim is on a different level. Not different like Jordan to John Starks. But a difference like Jordan to Clyde Drexler or Nique.
