Despite the parity between the two players, this actually isn't a stupid question. It juss seems stupid to most of us, simply b/c we're basketball nerds.

Obviously, Dwight's a Top 10 player (many say Top 5, and I won't blatantly disagree b/c he's indeed that on most nights) while Kevin is a Top 50 player. So while they are both elite at a number of the same things (scoring, rebounding, & non-stat reward things like ace pick-setting), Dwight is set apart by his outright dominance in all areas defensively, dominance offensively in the paint *AND* his on-court & locker room leadership; things that everyone has praised him about before, yet that idiot Otis Smith still doesn't respect all what Dwight brings to the table.

Kevin has more offensive versatility, but Dwight is equally dominant offensively in his own way, and is a freak defensively not seen since Hakeem Olajuwon & David Robinson were in their prime.
