Talking "Tim is still the best power forward in the league"

"Tim is still the best power forward in the league"
Staff and Wire Reports
Thursday, September 18, 2008

While stating that Tim Duncan is 32,and clearly the downside of his career, CBS Sports still ranks Tim Duncan the top power forward in the league.

"(Duncan) has played 11 NBA seasons and has participated in more than 150 playoff games," writes Matt Steinmetz. "Still, when you get right down to it, is there any other player you'd rather have playing power forward?"

"Kevin Garnett and Amare Stoudemire have to be in that discussion. But something doesn't feel right if a 'best of' or 'top 10' list doesn't have Duncan's name at the top. Yes, Garnett is coming off a title. Stoudemire is the best young "4" in the NBA. Even so, it's Duncan atop the leaderboard.

"Duncan continues to be the most vital player to the Spurs, even with the emergence of Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili. It is still Duncan getting double-teamed in the low post, setting the table for that twosome. And did we mention his four NBA championships?"

Last year, Utah coach Jerry Sloan, who coached Jazz great Karl Malone told USA Today that Duncan "is probably the best player to ever play the position the way he plays it."
