    ^And played consistently good defense even well after his prime which made his offensive numbers go down. But he isn't some self centered player ya know.

    Duncan unquestionably had the skillset to average 30+ PPG... but then he wouldn't have been Tim Duncan.

    Players like Duncan, Curry, Pippen and Magic are the dream teammates to have if you want to win rings.

    Let's not forget FG% Per Shot Taken. Cause as Wilt said "If you take all the shots...then you should be making them at the highest %". Tim Duncan was a consistant 50 plus% FG scorer.

    The real question isn't whether Duncan could have averaged two more points in a season, but whether Duncan was better than LeBron James.

    Of course, most of us would agree that LeBron is the more dominant player from a physical standpoint (higher numbers across the board) and has had the better career (more regular season MVPs).

    But Duncan is the greater player with the greater career. He had leadership skills from Day one, and won the Spurs' first title in his second year. While Poppovich's strategic minutes management did extend Duncan's career, that was largely because he had a bad knee. If you watched Duncan play after he turned 30, you'd notice he limped as he ran the floor. Despite this, and perhaps because of it, Duncan remained an effective defender and leader during the back end of his career, and continued to help the Spurs dominate the league, right up until the end. The Spurs were the ones pushing the Golden State Warriors to 73 wins in 2016 because they did not clinch the first seed until the last week of the season.

    And Duncan didn't have to make a "Decision" to go to a stacked superteam to win his championships.
