ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — At 39 years old and in his 19th NBA season, San Antonio Spurs forward Tim Duncan has been a model of consistency. He may not be flashy, doesn’t seek out headlines, but Duncan gets results — 2 MVP awards, 3 NBA Finals MVP awards, as well as 5 NBA titles. While Duncan’s career is presumably winding down, he hasn’t shown many signs of stopping. Last night, his Spurs hosted and defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers, to move to 35-6 and continue to solidify their place among the Western Conference elite.
And though Duncan doesn’t seek out attention, it still finds him. Following the game last night, LeBron James took to Instagram to pay tribute to “the Greatest PF to Ever play this game.”
Don't know how many times we got left to go against one another but I've never have and I never will take them for granted! The consistency you've shown over the years goes unmatched and as a competitor it's always a treat to be competing on the same floor as you! Being a professional(professionalism) is so overlooked in our sport but I always knew who I could look to if I ever wasn't professional about this lovely game and that's You. From one King to Another and to the Greatest PF to Ever play this game, all Love and Respect Timmy D!
