Well, that's not exactly surprising. Kaman is a far superior offensive player, because he's not very athletic, yet his game is polished, and he has a variety of go-to moves: hooks, back to the basket, and mid-range Js.
Dwight is a superior athlete, better finisher on lobs, better finisher on extra opportunities (after getting a rebound), and far superior defender.
But yeah, offensively they don't compare. Kaman is more similar to Gasol on the offensive end. Dwight's game is totally different. You take away his favorite move -- the dunk -- and that's pretty much it. Fortunately for Dwight, he's a relatively skilled passer, so he can at least get rid of the ball when he can't score. If he does not get stripped first.
Kaman would probably be a decent big even at 37 years old. Slow, but effective for, say, 10-15 minutes. Dwight... I'm not so sure. Without the lift he can't do much, because his hooks are flat and his J does not exist. Yet, Duncan is still effective, although he's not fast or quick, and he can't jump that well anymore. He has great fundamentals though. Kaman is like that -- minus the defense.
