Arrow How much does the Spurs falling apart help Duncan's legacy?

I remember for the longest time people calling Duncan a system player and that he was made by Pop. Does this change their mind? Spurs have not been anything relevant without Duncan ever.

The Spurs are falling apart because their best player isn't playing and Manu and Tony are old. Has nothing to do with Duncan. They were contenders last year.

Quite alot IMO and probably most especially Pop. Pop once said he was going to retire at the same time as Duncan and he probably wasn't kidding at the time and he probably should have.

It's the reverse Phil - Kobe effect

After PJ, the Lakers just plummeted

Kobe should have retired with Phil

So? He was 40yo.

It'd be a different story if he retired in 2006 for example.

People are acting like injuries don't matter. Sure, TD was the cornerstone of the Spurs since ages but he left a very good contender when he retired. They went to the WCF last season but guess what, INJURIES HAPPENED.

Everyone knows Tim Duncan has been the most important Spurs member ever. And he's not even one of my top favorite players. Its just the truth. TD changed the spurs since day 1 and won championships alongside different supporting casts. Only people who hate on him are stans of other great players (Dirk, Kobe, Lebron, Barkley, etc)

Magic Johnson & Tim Duncan are probably the most impactful rookies ever.

because of magic, people talk about abdul as if he was an all time great.

TD turned scrubs like parker, ginobili, kwahi into all stars & more...& pop gets talked of like one of the best coaches when he is a downright obnoxious idiot who seems to believe in his own hype.

ps. TD was around when they won 67 RS games & the reason they lost to OKC that year was because he had 0 blocks in that entire series...it sucked to see him like that.

It boosts Duncan to #1 all time, easily the GOAT.

Seriously, Duncan is THE best player that ever played. If he didn't have to have teammates, he would go 82 and 0 in the regular season and then 16 and 0 in the postseason.

His averages would be 120 ppg on 100% shooting and he would give up 30 ppg.

He would still be playing and he'd have like 20 MVPs, 20 FMVPs, 20 DPOYS, etc.
