Who is your choice for NBA Player Of The Decade? The fans voted for Kobe. I disagree of course. I vote Shaquille O'Neal. 4 rings, 1 MVP, 3 Finals MVPs, helped 2 franchises win NBA titles. One of those being an "expansion" franchise. 9 playoff appearances in the decade. Shaquille is the last player (2000) to lead the league in scoring and win an NBA title in the same season. One of the most dominant big men of all time, Shaq's impact on the decade was the biggest.

I would have voted for O'Neal, but by the time the 2000's came around he was already up towards 30 years old and only had a few dominant years in the tank.

I went for Tim Duncan. I think he'll go down as one of the most under appreciated talents of our generation. He's not loud with his game and he's really quiet and goes about his business. His defense is as good if not better than his offense and he's a winner.

4 times a champion without ever having an elite scoring guard to take the pressure away. Tony Parker is a great player but he's mostly a compliment.

3 times a finals MVP.

2 times league MVP.

12 times all defensive NBA team.

You make a good case for Duncan. His 10 playoff appearances top Shaq & Kobe's 9 for the most of the decade.

I also voted Tim Duncan. He's always been about the team.

Kobe Bryant of course. No one this decade brought the talent and skill that Kobe did. He entered this decade winning championships and left this decade doing the same thing.

I disagree with LeBron being 2nd. Are you serious people? Timmy and Shaq are both tied for 2nd.

I agree completely. I have always thought this about Tim. I love his game. He isn't flamboyant, he doesn't have puppet commercials, he isn't getting in troubles or any of that, etc. but Duncan is as consistent as they come. They built that team around him for the last 10 years. Find me a more classy guy on and off the court. In a league that gets a bad rap for "thugs and troublemakers" Duncan has never been in that group. His numbers also do not lie.
