His post game is woefully inadequate and he has a long way to go to learn dominate footwork in the paint. His back to the basket game also needs more versatility to it, as right now he just uses basic moves (but since he's SO long, those moves are unstoppable). Tim Duncan is far more "skilled" than KG. However, KG brings so much versatility - he can rebound, dish, dribble, shoot - that it makes him ferocious out there.
A pairing of Kobe and KG is championships caliber and, therefore, worth far more than Lamar and Caron (and that's that I LOVE those 2 guys).
Well, let's look at it: Name a big man with ALL these skills and or better than the skills KG has:
Name a better ball handling Big Man than KG?
Name a better scoring Big Man than KG? (Meaning not just be able to shoot, but be able to get to the rim)
Name a better rebounding Big Man than KG?
Name a better passing Big Man than KG?
Name a better defending Big Man than KG?
Name a better shotblocking Big Man than KG?
Name a Big Man with better footwork than KG?
Name a quicker Big Man than KG?
Name a Big Man that averaged 20pts/10rebs/5assts for 7 straight years like KG did?
Now, after you've done ALL of that, if you've actually come up with better Big Men than KG in any of those categories, how many of them have ALL of those attributes like KG? No one.
Duncan is the most fundamentally sound Big Man of all time, but overall skills (Ball handling, scoring, rebounding, defense, passing, athleticism) no one matches up with KG. Dude is a freak and he revolutionized the PF spot: Big Men with guard-like skills and adeptness.
You can talk about his post game all you want...if that's the biggest knock skill-wise on him, he's STILL ahead of the rest of the Big Men in the other categories.
Amare is quicker than KG and a MUCH better scorer.
Ben is a better defender
There are better defenders than KG and there are quicker guys than KG and even shot blocking guys and scorers but KG is a combination of everything on a high level.
