Yeah, instead he had to go against a harder West. I keep hearing Jordan as the reason Malone never won a ring, but even if Duncan never won, he still made more trips to the Finals through a stronger conference. Also, I would choose Duncan over Malone even WITHOUT the rings.

Keep in mind that Malone has played 9 more seasons than Duncan:

Duncan: 4 more all-team 1st defense team
2 more 2nd all-defense
only 2 less all-NBA team (and 1 less 2nd team) but with 9 years less than Malone played
(oh, still don't forget those 4 more rings, and 3 Finals MVPs with more possibly coming)

I'm not that dumb. It's like an old school rap record battle. It's doesn't really matter who's the better rapper as much as who has the bigger boombox on the block. The reason, IMO, why the Bulls won that series is because Jordan rose to the occassion much more than anyone else on the floor did (except Game 3...that was all Bulls, man). And, ok, I went over my head with "definately" better, but to me they were a better team, and I say this being a fan of those 90's Chicago teams.

And I say that Chicago was the better team, even though Utah gave them a run for their money, and didn't play as well as they were capable.

Duncan never eclipsed 26 ppg. Malone was much better.

The thing is, Stockton got Malone many of those pts. Duncan has the offense completely run through him. Hell, the entire team is built around his presence. This is not even mentioning the awards and rings tim has won. This isn't even a competition. Duncan by a mile.

Are you freakin' kidding me? Karl Malone has played with John Stockton throughout his career. Heck, he even once had a prime Shaq.

Stockton + Hornacek >>> Parker + Ginobili

And Robinson was at the tail end of his career.

Their scoring stats aren't directly-comparable, and certainly not evidence of Malone's superiority. Duncan has never played with a HOF'er on the perimeter. Malone had the benefit of a Top 5 all-time PG and the best assister ever throwing him points for two decades.

the MJ BULLS > any playoff team the Duncan Spurs played against

Hornacek was also at the tail end of his career. Not to mention... Stockton and Malone were older guys too, unlike a young Duncan that had great teammates... The young Stockton Malone didn't have much talent playing along side of them.

Ignorance at it's very best boys & girls.

The 3peat Lakers were better than 95% of the teams Jordan faced in the playoffs.

I read you're original remark wrong, as I thought it said any team the Bulls played in the playoffs were better than any the Spurs faced.

That's my fault.

But there is still a legit claim that the '01 Lakers were better than at least 3 of those 6 squads the Bulls won a championship with.

Malone, McHale, Barkley.....all better than Duncan.

Although Tim is a great PF (top 7 all-time).....he's vastly overrated due to team success (like Bill Russell).

Maybe, but my money would be on the Bulls. Sure would be a fun series to watch, that's for sure.
