Well I would go with Duncan. Nothing against Pop, but give him a bad team and he won't win 50 games. We saw that his rookie year. Dunan has been one of the best big men in NBA history. I like Parker a lot and think he is underrated, and Pop is a great coach, but without Duncan, he isn't there too long.

who has been the most important? Timmy D

who is the most important right now? Pop

So by the way the question is framed I choose Pop, but really its all 3

Popovich became the most important ingredient in their success starting 3-5 years ago.

Duncan was the most important ingredient the other years, including all 4 championship years.

This is an easy answer.

I gotta go with Pop here.

He was the scout and drafted or signed a lot of the guys who have been key to filling in the places around Duncan, and then as a coach made those pieces fit.

Obviously without Duncan, the Spurs wouldn't have this level of success, and without Duncan support Pop as a coach between 2000-2002, when management was expecting a combo of prime Tim and DRob to outdo Shaq. Most other players who weren't winning would be more than happy to throw a coach under the bus, but Duncan stood by his coach.

This is a pretty silly question and something that's very hard for anyone to find a definite true answer. Take away anyone of the 3 from the equation and the Spurs don't win any of their last 3 titles for sure.

Tony, then Duncan, then Pop.

Last yrs finals, Pop proved that even he can make the biggest cluster**** mistakes by nothing have Timmy at the end of game 6 regulation or Parker down the stretch in game 7.



And if u guys recall, the Spurs struggled against the mighty 3peat Lakers until Parker came into his own in just his 2nd season and cause havoc and ended the Lakers reign in 2003 Semis.

Tony Parker since 2003 has been the motor, engine and difference maker for the Spurs.

You know TP wasn't himself after he injured his hamstring right? He had really no more explosion out there. That injury will continue to be overlooked cause of how Game 6 ended, but that could've been the difference in the series.

I'm not even going to touch on the TD not being in, I've explained it several times already lol.

This is like what is more important to an automobile:

An engine, the wheels, or the frame?

from 1998-2007 it was Duncan. he was the best player in the league along with a few other guys and he could dominate. from 2007 and on, it has been pop, who has kept the boat rolling despite duncans decline in minutes. .

both really. i think when duncan was at his peak you have to say duncan. but since, Pop has a great argument.

Duncan has been the constant, but all 3 really. And then some.

If you meant from the day Tim was drafted, I choose Tim. If you mean now? Pop.

I love Pop. And for that reason, I will go with what Pop said recently.

"Without Tim, there would be no banners, there would be no franchise".

Personally I think you need all of those pieces but if forced to pick one, I pick Duncan.

Definitely Pop right now. Besides last season there has been plenty of years where Duncan hasnt played like a superstar or even an allstar. I agree with that other poster about it being Pop from 2007 and onward.
