He isn't a flopper like Tony Parker or Manu Ginobili. He just takes it when he gets hit on a drive, or a dunk, or a hookshot. Introducing.. Tim Duncan! He is a great NBA center, again, like Ming Yao, one of the NBA's current best. He would probably be better but he is a little older than those other guys.
He was drafted into the NBA in 1997, and signed with the San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs, the previous season went a lowly 20-62. In Duncan's first season, he helped the Spurs improve by 36 games.. 56-26 was their final record. In fact, him and the Spurs won NBA Finals in 1999, 2003, 2005, and 2007. He was the MVP in all of them except for 2007. Tony Parker won MVP there.
But the point is, Tim Duncan is an awesome player. Sure, Ming Yao can be better sometimes, but he never brought his Houston Rockets to the NBA Finals and won. In fact, the Rockets' lone NBA championship win was in the 1990's, when T-Mac was with the Orlando Magic and Ming Yao was still in China! Tim Duncan, on the other hand, turned the Spurs around. The Spurs have won all four of their NBA titles with Tim Duncan, and head coach, Greg Popovich. All of these series wins in the NBA Finals have varied from 4-0 sweeps, to 4-1, 4-2, and 4-3 wins.
