Malone is nowhere near Duncan.
Duncan surpassed Kobe with this championship, but who knows what would of happened without the whole Kobe rape trial. That Shaq, Kobe, Payton, and Malone team had way too much drama going on. Malone wanted to fuck Kobe's wife, Payton hated the triangle, Shaq wanted more money, and Kobe was possibly going to prison. Kobe could of had 7 championships. The Spurs have just been more consistent with Duncan.
