Duncan now has the highest personal winning percentage in nba history
 
Tim Duncan had 16 points, eight rebounds and four blocked shots as the Spurs took command early and lengthened their lead throughout a 109-86 victory over the visiting 76ers. It was the 819th time that Duncan has played in an NBA victory, tying Shaquille O'Neal's career total of wins played in, which is the ninth-highest in league history. But while Shaq played in 388 losses, Duncan has played in only 327 losses, giving Duncan the highest personal winning percentage (.715) among the 105 players in NBA history who have played in at least 1,000 games.

If Kobe won all the games he lost, he would have a 100% winning percentage.

Kobe has Dwight, Pau, Nash on his team and they still suck. Kobe's a system player - Without Phil Jackson and the triangle it's impossible to build around him.

I was going to mention that Bird's personal win % was higher, but he doesn't qualify for the 1000 game minimum.

The Bill Russell of his era (with infinitely more skill). People won't realize his true greatness until after he's gone :bowdown:

I was gonna say the same thing.

Damn impressive mark by Timmy, and admittedly I didn't know Shaq was the leader previously, I just assumed it was Bird or maybe Magic.:lol

If people said he was "boring" while he was playing, people aren't going to suddenly become appreciative of him after he's gone. I remember reading in 2007 after the Spurs' last title people taking exception to the assertion that Duncan was a Top 10 GOAT player. You overestimate people.

And after Duncan retires, he'll then be a player from a past era, which means that people would discredit and disparage him, as they do to everyone who isn't playing in the here and now.

Just another reason why you can't rank Kobe over Duncan all time without being a homer. Another there are infinite other reasons; it just really goes to show that you can't keep TD out of you're top 10 reasonably. And if he's only like #8, is Kobe even top 10 at all? :confusedshrug:

Yes im bringing Kobe into this dammit! This thread needs replies!

Don't the Spurs have an absurd streak of 50+ regular seasons going right now?

This is not surprising. Shaq being the previous leader is.

Props to Duncan for this year.. But what about his down years the past couple seasons when the spurs still were getting one seeds? He's got the best coaching, talent development, and overall team of any superstar right now. Tony Parker has been the best player on the Spurs for a while until this year. Manu was better too.

Guess Lamar Odom should get more credit for the Lakers success from 08-10 being their third option as well.

Spurs won four titles when Duncan was the best player. What have they won after Duncan reached his down years again?

To me Duncan is the most impressive winner there ever was in this league. His teammates were never all star level cept maybe Robinson for two years? Plus he played in the same era as Kobe and Shaq, both of whom compete for having the best teammates talent wise, than probably any other single star ever in the league. That's a real accomplishment on Duncan's part.

To me the only guys that had a real intimate relationship with winning were Russell, Duncan and Magic. Bird has a case and I'm missing one other person at the moment.

This thread is about personal win percentage.. Which is regular season wins. The spurs no doubt haven't been a true title contender since Duncan declined. They've been getting by with unbelievable coaching and accountability on both sides of the ball. Duncan could've not been on the team the past few years and they would've been a 3-4 seed at worst. The spurs out game plan everyone but they don't have the talent to win in the playoffs.

Duncan KNOWS this.. He watched the team do great and up his 'personal win perxentage' but fail miserably in the playoffs. That's why he turned it up this year. Duncan ain't dumb.. He knows this team needs him to beast if they're going anywhere.
