Tim Duncan’s Sexy, Sexy Passes (VIDEO)

By Jeff Case

Tim Duncan has caught a lot of flak over the years for being “boring” to the average NBA fan. A nickname like “The Big Fundamental” doesn’t lend itself to tons of highlight plays and such, even though Duncan is no slouch in that area (especially this season) and, let’s not forget, has four championships, two MVPs and three Finals MVPs to his name. Not bad for boring.

One of the better passing big men of all time, Duncan is great at triggering the Spurs’ fast break with precise and (no duh) fundamentally solid outlet passes. That inspired the folks over at the fine Spurs blog, 48 Minutes of Hell, to pay tribute to his outlet passing by setting some of his best of the season to Keith Sweat’s R&B classic, “Twisted“. They’ve also got the perfect description for outlet passes to the average hoops fan:

Duncan’s outlet passing became very important in making the Spurs into a better offensive team. Unfortunately, outlet passes are like the vegetables of basketball. Supremely important but nothing special. It takes a lot to make outlet passes exciting.

Tim Duncan just happens to be one of the best in the game at making outlet passes, so we here at 48MoH thought we needed to do something to add some sexiness back to the outlet pass, so we put together this little mix tape.

    TD (and KG) is one of the best C/PF this era. Guys like Amare don’t get it done because they can’t play D.

      are you listening to yourself?! you can’t say that about a guy (Amare Stoudemire) who’s averaging 21ppg and 9 rbg over a 10 year career. although he is not a superstar and alltime great like Duncan, he was a Top5 PF almost any year his entire career.

    I fell in love with the spurs since the first game I saw them play. People now a days tune in to watch for entertainment than for the love of the game. If you are one of those people than prefer to watch Blake Griffin dunk than to see a great organization like the Spurs, you don’t know how to appreciate greatness.

    some of you guys need to learn to play ball before you start yapping about how boring the spurs are… some of the things they do are so difficult yet they are able to do it easily on a daily basis
