There is absolutely no doubt whatsoever that San Antonio Spurs' Tim Duncan has his passport stamped for the Basketball Hall of Fame.
From winning four NBA titles, staying with one team to back-to-back NBA MVP honors, there hasn't been anything Duncan has not done to earn the status of "Legendary." But where does TD rank among the best-of-the-best? How does he compare to those how equally have a resume which would make a person's eyes go wide?
SI Now discussed this topic and needless to say, TD has secured himself a spot among the pantheon of NBA legends.
TImmy will easily be considered the best PF of all-time and will be talked about as a top 10 player when all is said and done. I would personally put Timmy in my top 5 players of all-time but that's assuredly my bias talking. While Timmy's stats may not compare with other top 5 or top 10 greats; I believe Tim will be best remembered for sacrificing everything (stats, money, fame) for the betterment of the team. He is undoubtable one of the the most, if not the most unselfish players to grace the NBA.
No matter his place in history, we Spurs fans will be some of the select few to truly understand his greatness. Here's to #5 boys, let's get it done this year for Timmy!!!!!
@projectspurs "You can make the argument with Barkley, with Malone." Um, no. Tim= 21st in pts, 13th in boards, 8th in blocks, 4 rings, etc.
@BisonStarsSpurs@projectspursMalone is #2 on that scoring list..that alone puts him in the convo...that said I give TD the nod mostly because of rings
@projectspurs Don't know stats on Barkley Era & Malone Era for their respective teams, but guessing they don't compare to Duncan Era stats.
@projectspurs Didn't they combine for something like no rings also?
@projectspurs Yeah, when we start talking about centers things get a bit muddier.
@BisonStarsSpurs yep. Though I'm not sure how to rank the Duncan-Olajuwon-Shaq triad.
