They will erect a statue of Tim Duncan...

...and it will look like this.

Was it me????? I didn't do it.
It's funny that the OP started this thread on a night that Spurs aren't even playing.

Talk about butt hurtedness.

Why U mad? I actually noticed that teams were starting to wear throwbacks to their ABA days. Spurs will be wearing their Dallas Chaparral's jerseys. And I remembered that the Spurs said they were not going to wear jersey's that said "Dallas" (Which is what the jerseys would have said). Then I got to thinking of Tim Duncan, and isn't this the face you think of when you think Tim Duncan? It doesn't matter that they aren't playing tonight. And you don't know that I'm not a Spurs fan.

No. I think of championships.

Jock, I have to think you're trolling here. But, what the heck, I'll bite.

If that's what you think when you hear Tim Duncan, then you hate basketball.

This is what I think of:

4 time NBA Champion
3 Time Finals MVP
2 Time MVP
Rookie of the Year
13 Time All Star
13 All Defense Selections

But more importantly... I think of Humble Superstar. The guy is the definition of Team Player. One of the greatest fundamental players of the game. Ever.

If you're trolling, you got me. If you're some sort of bitter hater, quietly GTFO.
Oh, and you're not a Spurs fan.
^ your good.

But when I thing of the spurs I think whiners. Parker Manu and true to form, Duncan is the MVP.
Every team has whiners on it, but Duncan, Ginobli, and Parker seem to do it more than most.
K. You're not worth the argument. The Spurs can mean whatever they want to you.

I know what they mean to me. Go Spurs.
Give me a break Trevas. I don't know how you can say that. You're right that every team whines. Every player whines.

The Spurs more than the rest? Ok.
Watching the series' when they played the Mavs year after year their whining stuck out to me more than the Mavs. Last year when they got beat by the Grizzlies the Spurs always seemed to complain more than the Grizzlies.

I'm glad they mean so much to you Dino. It was meant as a joke. I've obviously offended your child. This is just coming from an observer who has watch Tim Duncan play all his life. And this is deffinately an opinion that has been around for a while.
You didn't offend me. Not in the least. You told me what you think of when you hear Tim Duncan. I told you what I think of when I hear Tim Duncan.

No?
So sad that you were arguing against someone who likes the same team as you.
It only took purposely sandbagging a whole season to make the ****hole of San Antoine relevant..
And jock, you say you've watched him play all your life....

When you hear "Tim Duncan" you think of him whining? After all you have seen him do in his career? That's what you think of?
No. I am neither a troll nor a bitter hater. But apparently when I brought up this topic I had to be one
You got me.
Have you seen Duncan after every foul call?

Duncan is an all time great. No question about it. And yes, after all my years of observing time Duncan, #1 - He's an all-timer. And right behind that at #2 - He whines. Those are the 2 things that I think of.

Can't help it.

Have you seen the majority of every NBA player after a foul call?

This argument is impossible to win. Yes, Tim argues calls. Every player argues calls. Yes, even the Grizzlies' players argue calls.
I don't deny that the Grizzlies argue calls. I thought the series between the Spurs and Grizzlies last year was officiated fairly. I felt less so about the Thunder and Grizzlies. Durant, Westbrook, and Harden were practically untouchable.

And jock, that's cool.
When I think of Duncan, I remember the 2002-2003 season.
Regular season averages:
23.3 points
12.9 rebounds
3.9 assists
2.9 blocks
51% from the field

Then in the playoffs:
24.7 points
15.4 rebounds
5.3 assists
3.3 blocks
53% from the field

Regular season MVP, NBA finals MVP, 1st team all-star, 1st team all defense, and clinched his second title with a 21 point, 20 rebound, 10 assist, 8 block game. Such a dominant player without being a flashy prima donna. He had an astounding regular season, then improved in every major statistical category on the way to his 2nd of 4 titles. The fact that he raises his arms when he thinks a call is questionable is hardly enough to tarnish that reputation, especially in an era with b*tches like Chris Paul and Rasheed Wallace.

I agree that he is an all-time great and no doubt HOFer, but that does not mean that the man does not whine like a girl after foul calls.
I watch a lot of basketball. I watch all teams. Not just the ones that I have a rooting interest in. And from my observances, I strongly believe that Tim Duncan whines more than your average superstar. This is coming from an outside observer.

But people do write articles about Tim Duncan...

http://basketbawful.blogspot.com/2008/04/word-of-day-duncan-face.html
This article started out as a joke pointing out that Tim whines alot. It remains so. As of right now, he's the best power forward ever. We don't need to turn this into a box score of his accomplishments.
this thread
^that was the whole point, to make people smile
Spurs fans get riled up so easily when someone mentions something wrong with the almighty Tim Duncan.
