he needs to quit griping about the fouls called on him so much. other than that, he's a great player. i don't really care for him though.

How about more emotion? Not just when the refs call a foul on him but express himself with more anger and conviction.

LOL

Let's just say that with all the unfounded criticism he receives, and all the hard earned praised he has not received, yes: I am.

That being said, there is no excuse for my overreacting and lack of empathy toward a fellow human being, meaning yourself.

My sincerest and deepest apologies (to you and others, no matter if it was deserved or no).

I wasn't offended at all. But I wasn't trying to slight Duncan.
If Duncan played with a little more conviction on the court, like let's say, a Charles Barkely, he'd be even more intimidating. Not only the physical, but the mental edge over his opponents. to go along with his skill he'd be potent. Like that," I'll **** you up," attitude like Larry and Jordan had.

That is why he is greater human being than Larry and Michael combined, and his accomplishments (4 titles, 2 mvps, 3 finals mvps, etc) are far more impressive: because TD has not used hatred to fuel his success.

Also, you may have have not been offended, but such impatience on my part offended myself.

Yeah, his FT's could be better... but does it need to be? Apparently not. Guy's got four rings now.

Sure, he'll have his 4-10 or 6-13 every now and then, but he's also capable of going 5-7, 7-8, or 9-14 too.

Against Dallas last postseason, he went for 7-12 in the first game, 12-14 in the next, 10-15 in one game, 8-10 in the next. Not horrible at all. In the '05 championship run, he had a string of good FT shooting games. Starting at the end of the Sonics series, going into the Suns series. Shooting 14-17 in game six of round two, then going 8-10, 10-11, and 15-15 in a win against Phoenix.

He can hit FT's, he's just streaky and inconsistent (obviously). You want to see bad free throw shooting, take a look at Shaquille O'Neal, Ben Wallace, or Andris Beidrins (just watching him shoot them is tough enough). At least you can count on Duncan to swish a bunch of them by the end of a series, not just hoping they go in, or get that lucky bounce. I'll take Duncan's 63% over a horrendous 43% anyday.

As far as conviction goes, eh, perhaps that's what sets him apart from some of these other players. The Kenyon Martin's, the Amare Stoudemire's. "Groundhog Day" doesn't rely on or focus on (to whatever extent) a mental edge. He lets his game do the talking, and I can respect that. Players should talk less and do more. It doesn't matter if Rasheed Wallace can "guarantee" a win if he's not going to represent that on court... Who knows, maybe Duncan does take part in alot of talking and mental games, none of us are really on the court during games to know. I've seen him barking at opponents before, like any basketball player. Just never broadcasts it, never publicizes it. It's never at the forefront.

IDK if he needs anything but:

Three point range
A great crossover
A fadeaway
A pull up J
Tony Parker speed
Nate Robinson hops
and Michael's ability to change his shot mid-air.......

would all be nice
