average 17ppg 9 rebs 1 blck.

He did this while shooting roughly 50%.

All this and he's way better than his numbers.

Really it was a high 1 block more like 1.9 over that time.

In only roughly 30 minutes.

The guys per36 stats are the same throughout his career. The guy is a beast.

Tim Duncan is the most underrated/under-appreciated player. I honestly have him ranked ahead of Lebron on the Greatest ever list.

The facts say he's better than Lebron right now.

Anytime a center that averages numbers like 17 and 10 with 2 blocks and 1 turnover with 4 dimes. That's like a guard averaging 29 ppg 10 assist and 4 steals because a center has more impact.

Beaten Lebron twice in head to head playoffs and would be three if not for popovich sitting him in the final 20 seconds when a rebound was needed. So he's really 3 and 0 vs lebron. And 12 and 3 overall record in the playoffs vs Lebron.

Does anyone know why lebron settles for so many long jumpers vs the Spurs? It's because Duncan is inside and lebron can't score on Duncan. Duncan has great timing and changes lebron's shots inside and lebron has never been good at adjusting in the air.

Lol, I think Duncan would have been 20-2 against Lebron if Lebron wouldn't be so bad in 2005 and 2003.

You really think Duncan RIGHT NOW is better than LeBron? Lol.

1) A center doesn't have more impact. Not in today's game. You're also ignoring the fact that LeBron is miles more efficient. A center is supposed to have a higher FG% but why does a wing player have a FG% that is .6% higher than Duncan?
2) You ignore the fact that Tim has a roster for the ages. He's not even the best player on the team. He has the greatest coach. He gets to sit games out.
3) Are you really saying he's 3-0 vs LeBron because Ray Allen made a three to beat Spurs? What about game 7 where Spurs had another chance and lost.. What kind of logic are you using? "Tim is actually 3-0 and not 2-1 because if he was playing, it would have been 3-0"? That's absurd. Also, Spurs beat LeBron, not Duncan beats LeBron. In a 1v1, Duncan would have 0 chance.
4) You know why LeBron settles for shots? Well, let's not forget LeBron averaged 28 points, 8 rebounds, and 4 assists on 57% shooting in the NBA Finals. So if he's settling for shots, he's far more impressive than we thought, huh? But do you really think Duncan is the reason why LeBron settles for jumpers more-so than any other team maybe outside the Pacers? Because of Kawai Leonard, Tiago Splitter, and Tim Duncan. It's not just one guy. LeBron can score against Duncan easy. Kawai Leonard is one of the best wing defenders in NBA if not right behind PG. In 2007, Bruce Bowen was the equivalent of a nastier and dirtier Shane Battier. Duncan is his prime might've been able to make it tough on LeBron but to say Duncan is forcing James to take those shots? Yeah, right...

Pretty sure he meant on the all time list and as of right now he's right... PSD voted and has spoken.

Just to add he's also won championships with different players and stars on the roster he's always been the special piece that brought in the ships!

Yea, for sure. He's been the center piece of that team. Well, he and Pop. And even now his impact is great, but obviously not like it was 10-12 years ago. He's been a more dominant 2 way player than Lebron, I think that much is true.

Agreeing with Tod does not help your guys credability. He is a clown. Give him props for settings posts per day count records though.
