Tim Duncan Has More 50-Win Seasons Than 26 Of The 30 NBA Teams

Tim Duncan is a living legend. The Spurs big man was drafted first overall by San Antonio in 1997, and since then, in the 17 seasons since, Duncan’s lowest single-season winning percentage was 61.

Taking a moment to reflect on his incredible career doesn’t happen enough. So much of the credit that the Spurs organization receives directly stems from Duncan’s incredible leadership and locker room influence, all of which are important, but weigh heavily because he is a Hall of Fame performer.

He has been an All Star 14 times and won four NBA championships. Last year against the Heat, the Spurs were mere seconds away from winning a fifth championship, taking an incredibly improbable comeback by Miami just to force a deciding game seven.

Whenever Tim Duncan does choose to retire, we need to remember him for what he is: the best player of his generation.
