So how great is Duncan's shape this year?top10 player? top5?
i mean it's been 3-4years people expecting Spurs to fall, it's been like 5-6yrs people saying Timmy isn't elite..but he always proves them wrong..
even last year Tim was so underrated his 15/9/3/2 in 30mpg was still allstar efficiency and Spurs had the best record in the NBA, but this season this 36yo playing legend looks to show he is even better than that
i mean his stats are great but he still plays only 30mpg his per36 numbers looks sick, it's 21.1ppg 11.8rpg 3apg 3blp 1.1spg
so he rebounds steals and even blocks as well or even better than Dwight this season, experts already talks about his DPOY chances and offensivelly he is still the BIG FUNDAMENTAL
where you guys have him rated? still the best PF in the game?
"still the best PF in the game?"
he is playin as the best PF in da game... Duncan is just so great on defense this year and looks so fast and agrresive unlike the few past years. Kevin Love has struggled this season and Blake griffin has improved on defense but is still missing alot to be at Timmy's level. Like Kenny 'the jet' Smith said on thursday... 'Jason Kidd has been playin basketball until he's 40 because he's smart, you dont need to only shoot the ball, you dont need to be a freak athlete. This analogy fits Tim Duncan at perfection.
This whole Spurs team seems awesome. From Stephen Jackson admitting he'd rather be doing other things than playing, Popovich showing the team his rap-vid, and the general feeling I get that this team is just so good they can show up for game-time, dominate, then head back home and completely forget about basketball. Feels like they don't give a &$#%#&@! in the best way possible.
Also, Timmy is the best PF of all time by far, and a top 5 player ever.
A combination of great conditioning and Coach Pop managing his minutes and slowly handing the torch to Tony Parker is what's making Timmy's production so flexible at his age.
Great coaching and great players at every position. Everyone is looking good on the Spurs. They were even able to beat the Rockets the other night. ;-)
Spurs just need a few breaks come playoffs time and they could easily be in the finals.
He surprises me every damn year.. yes he's still the best power forward in the league.
I hate calling Duncan the best PF in the game considering that he's been really playing Center for over a decade.
So lets compensate and say the best post player in the league. Happy? ;)
I mean honestly, If i can have any PF in the game for my playoff contending team I would most definitely stick with Duncan.
I would not count on any PF out playing him.
