Default Does Duncan need to add anything to his game???

Tim Duncan seems to have almost everything in a PF. He can rebound, shoot a medium range jumper, post and score, block, play defense, and kickout to open man. My question is what does he need to add to his game???? because i know there's no perfect player, there's always something that can be added.

Yeah, that's what I was going to say. I'm sure his deficiency in that department is not from a lack of trying, though.

Reggie Miller range.


























Nah, just be a 75% FT shooter (won't happen) and he'll be unarguably top 10 of all time.

Free throw and hell if you try hard enough you can get good at 3's. Hakeem started getting some serious range(for a center) later in his career as did Karl Malone, he would come back with something new every year.

He has a complete skill set, he needs to perfect a few things like everyone else.

Free Throws- #1 priority

Ball Handling- Always room for improvement, especially for a big like TD.

A little Sky Hook would be handy as he ages as well.

He's proven that he can hit free throws at a great rate for a big man. I believe he shot 80% a few years back.

Free throws basically. He at times can shoot very well and sometime not to well. He needs to improve his consistancy thats just about it.

2 more rings, so ISH can officially proclaim him better than Shaq/Hakeem.

3 more rings to call him GOAT.

his free throws are absolutely atrocious. the guy doesn't even try to be a good FT shooter. he's decided he doesn't need to be. or that he can't. or both. but a guy with hands/coordination like that bricking from the line the way he does? he might actually have the worst foul line form of any player in the entire damn league. I don't even get what he's thinking with that shot.
