I can think of about 13 off the top of my head I'd put ahead of him and another ten in his region.

Kobe's moved above Shaq to most people, but

Love West but not above Shaq, Isiah? No, Stockton? def not

The rest were the guys I figured you'd come up with even though I'd say no to a couple


One you left off that could be argued that I thought you may put is Duncan, no one else should be mentioned above Shaq.

I include Duncan we got at worst 12th for Shaq

Two random sites, yup it's decided Rolling Eyes I can find you one that has Kobe #2 def not the case though.


And you can not have Shaq above Magic or Wilt, can not. And Kobe's resume has past a lot of players, you'd be surprised.

Now that I think about it, Shaq has a good top ten argument, 10-14 range maybe.

i was never comfortable with comparing players from different eras against each other... we'll never know who the absolute best was, as thats reserved for each persons opinion...

Shaq and Dream played in the same era... half, but if your talking all-time surely it's tough, we all know athletes and teams improve over time in sports, but it really comes down to resumes.

Gotta go Shaq. Yeah Dream was more skilled, but Shaq was just more dominant.


4 Titles, 7 appearances. Compared to 2 and 3 for Dream. Yeah Shaq had better supporting casts, but Dream winning his during Jordan's retirement phase hurts. Most take it for granted that Jordan would have 8 titles if not for that.

Stats lean his way also.

I dont think there is any reason to believe the Bulls wouldnt have won those 2 years as well as the other 6 they did win.

And then we have to ask did dream beat Jordan twice, or do they go 1-1.

2 wins would give Dream a big boost in my mind. 1-1 would actually hurt slightly. 0-2 would put Dream in the Mailman class.

And slight chink in Jordans, if they went 1-1, little bit bigger if 0-2. To see someone beat Jordan during his unbeatable stage changes things. Though if he still followed up with multiple titles the way he it did, then he still tops the charts imo. 2-0 by Jordan, giving him 8 total? Well he's already #1, but at least then we wouldn't have to hear the stupid "is Kobe better then Jordan" debates.

Shaq has his own martial art and has been training in MMA so I am quite convinced he'd win.

Maybe DREAM can get back on it's feet by finally booking Shaq vs. Hong Man Choi
