False, LeBron doesn’t choke they don’t win 2011 though I give Dirk A TON OF CREDIT for playing and helping the Mavs win game 4 with the ailments he was suffering, big-time stuff



Then I’m giving the Mavs their first meeting in 2006 for the shitty officiating if we’re just making up excuses.

I don't remember much about the officiating in that series but Dallas should have done whatever to take the ball out of DWade's hands. Dude went insane after being down 2-0.

Dirk's title was a more impressive run though. I'm still seeing the nets flaming after that 3pt barrage in the Lakers series that year.

Of course Dirk's ring was better, Durant was the sidekick.

Not the point, the point was but for the greatest choke in NBA Finals history by LeBron, Dallas doesn't win that title therefore it means less for purposes of this discussion, they got it because of a choke. Golden State with KD straight up arse RAPED the then-defending champion Cavs in 2017 with still-peak Bron, Kyrie, and Love and KD submitting the best series stats of his career then proceeded to SWEEP them (sans Kyrie) THE NEXT YEAR with KD duplicating his performance. Cleveland had no chance as the games transpired and we have to remember this was the defending champions who went 1-1 vs Golden State that regular season, because LeBron was still playing at that level, Kyrie and Love were on the team, and they just finished basically sweeping the Eastern playoffs with ease, I literally thought the Finals was a toss up but gave the edge to Golden State. They came out and flat out busted them so hard that it made me truly appreciate what they were doing here, they matured as a team compared to their playoff performance the preceding season.

Everyone remembers. The officiating in the Mavs-Heat 2006 finals is probably behind Lakers-Kings 2002 playoffs as far as most rigged by the officials & the NBA. If they touched DWade it was a foul. It was criminal what the NBA did to the Mavs.

Dirk’s legacy will go down as being better than KD barring a title in Brooklyn.

People using the number of titles as arguments are stupid. Are Robert Horry’s 7 rings better than MJ’s 6?

Typically, people use the amount of titles in these types of arguments when the players' achievements are very similar, basically a nitpicking factor to separate one of the players from the other

Wade had 97 FTAs in that series. Dirk had 55 FTAs and the Mavs as a whole 155. The Heat had 207. I can't remember a series I thought was rigged more than that one.

Yep, titles are a tiebreaker for players who are very close.

I think KD already has Dirk beat. Dirk only had 2 seasons with a PER over 27 and only 3 over 26.

KD has 5 seasons over 27 and 8 seasons over 26.

Neither was a lockdown defender, and they were both primarily scorers. KD's already eclipsed everything in Dirk's career except longevity.
