    Dream isn't 20x better than Duncan but he is most certainly better.

    Horry just needs to admit the x times better part was silly. Duncan was great, Dream was great, no need to diminish one by glorifying the other.

    No he doesn't.

    Horry is more than qualified to have an opinion on both players.

    The x part MAY BE hyperbole, the "better" part certainly was not.

    Dream was better than Duncan

    Horry played with both in their primes

    he was on espn where Stephen A makes outrageous claims

    this is nothing and probably closer to the truth

    Horry is right, Dream34 was 20 times better than Duncan, but the Spurs organization was 100 times better at building a championship roster around Duncan.

    A lot goes into making an All Time great....In Dream's case, the incredible athleticism/reaction time/eye hand coordination/footwork that he possessed, honed to an edge.. ....the soccer background...UH/Guy V/PSJ....Moses....Fonde....CD....his faith...trusting his teammates....He was such a physical force when he was younger, but the finished product was something else altogether. I'm not taking ANYTHING away from young Akeem & those GREAT Rockets teams. Au contraire. The only team to get out of the West in the eighties besides the Lakers but to have to face the Celtics both times. The loaded Cocaine year where noone was going to beat us. Those squads were way more talented than our title teams. Bad matchups/zone defenses against Seattle....Handling the Bulls easily during those years with Vernon thrown on MJ, and Chicago having no answer for our inside game.

    Dream is severely underrated, STILL....He belongs with Wilt, Kareem, etc..

    Duncan does not.

    Prime hakeem was unstoppable. DPOY MVP FINALS MVP all in 1 year. 93-95 hakeem was the greatest Bigman I have ever seen.

    Skill was probably fairly equal — different, but equal. However, Hakeem had far more athleticism to go with that skill.

    I don't think so man. Can't recall Duncan making crazy fade away jumpers on a nightlight basis. That takes skill.

    The real argument is whether or not Shaq is better than Hakeem. I would like to hear Horry's thoughts on that.

    As an expert on all things Duncan, Hakeem is better.
