Default Tim Duncan reestablishing himself as best big man in NBA

If he played 40 minutes he would be putting up historic numbers. Greatest PF Ever!

It has also helped his career that he played on a rigged team.

Huh?

Tim Duncan is top shelf. If his body permits, he puts up bigtime numbers and is a winner through and through.

He can't play 40min at his current level tho. This is not Tony Parker being managed. Duncan is not going to regularly be able to play that many minutes.

His body is not built for that many minutes at his age, that's a fantasy

Duncan is a class act and very enjoyable to watch. He makes it look so easy.

GOAT PF

The kind of production he's putting up at 36 years old is impressive. He's in really good shape. Probably better shape than the last 2 years. San Antonio was so lucky to draft a loyal player like him

Wait, so is he a center or power forward? Will we ever know?

If ranked as a PF, he's ranked #1.

If ranked as a C, I would put him at #3 behind Kareem and Wilt. #4 would be Shaq, #5 would be Hakeem.

I haven't seen many Spurs games, but i hope your claims are not being made because you see his stats at 30 minutes per game and are extrapolating that to 40 minutes per game...it doesn't work like that.

If he was forced to play 40 minutes per game, he'd have to lower his energy level and he won't get his valuable rest time on the bench. His overall production per minute would go down immensely.
