Tim Duncan told everyone early in college it didn’t matter to him if the NBA was setting up a salary cap and that he would lose out on a lot of money. He had no plans of leaving college until he got his degree. He Did That
Last free agency Timmy, was quoted as saying “You can print this anywhere I have no plans of ever leaving the Spurs. I will retire a Spur and I will be a Spur for life” 14 years strong and he is still a Spur. He Did That
Tim Duncan, in his first college game, was held scoreless only to end up being a consensus NCAA College Player of the Year. He was drafted 1st in the 1997 draft by the Spurs, and has led them to 4 NBA titles. He Did That
A tall lanky kid that still wears the same haircut since college has emerged as one of the best power forwards if not the best in the game. He has his 14th All-defensive NBA Team 14th All NBA Team and 10x 1st team. Two regular season MVP awards and three finals MVP awards. HE Did That
Tim Duncan was asked to take a lesser role and let Tony Parker take over the team. Tim unlike Shaq who couldn’t do it with Kobe, handed the reigns over and with his quiet confidence still eluded that he was that Man! Still the anchor in the middle and still the reason the Spurs go as far as he goes. Despite knee injuries many said his well had run dry, but they didn’t know Timmy was drinking from the fountain of youth. He Did That
How many players stay with a team their entire career? What star player never throws his coach under the bus and adamantly states that he trust his coach Coach Greg Popovich 100%? He never gets to high or to low, rarely shows emotion and is notorious for his fierce blank stare and quiet confidence. He Did That
Last night Time Duncan set screens, played superb help defense, got 10 boards and 24points, and five assist in 44 hard fought minutes. He finished the Grizzles off in overtime in the last two games with his consistency, fundamentally sound plays and his profound leadership. He has accepted his new role his declining athleticism with grace. He has taken the other two star players under his wing and before he left the court last night gave each one of his players a hug or a high five. Who still does that? He Did That
Timmy has been mentored by the great David Robinson, yeah remember the Admiral, there is nothing he hasn’t seen, his team and coach have extreme confidence in him. They are on a mission. Tony Parker says they all feel like it’s been to long since they have been there, the Finals. They all want one more time. Timmy is getting better with time and after defeating Memphis nothing will stop him from getting his fifth title. He Will Do That!
