Good thread. He lost to the Knicks in 1999. Poor trolling

It's better to make the Finals and lose than to not make it at all. I've never understood the logic of hyping a perfect Finals record. Is it great to have? Sure, but Tim Duncan's resume would be a lot better in reality if he was 4-7 rather than 4-4. Never even getting back to the Finals to defend your title isn't a great plus either. Talking about a player as great as Duncan that might seem like pulling hairs, but when you're talking about the all time greats the criteria is a bit different. He's certainly an all time great, so those are his peers.

I understand what you mean here, however we arent talking about someone who has made 2-3 finals or something. We are talking multiple. What is more important is that if a player hasn't lost as the favorite and Duncan has lost as the favorite several times.

Duncan is 16-5 against 50+ teams with HCA and 10-1 against less than 50 win teams with HCA.

Yup, that's some nice information as well. I mean to me he's a top 10 player of all time, but I think I'd have him in the 6-10 range. He's 2-4 vs Kobe in playoff series in his career as well, and a few of those were Shaq and Kobe. Sometimes it's just bad luck, there have been a few players better than Duncan and he just happened to meet up against them a good amount playing in the same era and conference.

Spurs won 4-1. Duncan lost in the Finals. I don't think OP knows what undefeated means. It means without loss. Duncan did lose in the finals.

lol @ the knicks took them to 5 in 99.

The pistons were within one play of repeating against them in 05.

But yes, undefeated is not the word to use here.
