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.”
