Tim Duncan’s Legendary Status Still Growing

Tim Duncan is the greatest power forward in the history of the NBA.  Four NBA titles, three NBA Finals MVP awards, Rookie of the Year, two league MVP awards, 10 All-NBA First Team spots and eight All-Defensive First Team selections as of this writing.   It is awfully tough to go up from there, isn’t it?  

But somehow, Tim Duncan has.  At age 37, Tim Duncan is still rising to the occasion.  Game 6 of the NBA Finals was just the latest example.  On the road.  Heat backs against the wall.  Pressure-filled game for both sides.

30 points and 17 points.  20+ points in the first half.  Tone setting.  Great defense.  Leadership.  Intensity without being cocky with an ego and showing-up the other team.  And he played 44 minutes in an overtime game.

37 years of age is young in life but often times old in sports.  For Tim Duncan, it means he is a veteran and not quite what he was, yet still very good and at times still dominant.

Who would have thought Duncan could still be adding to his already-impressive Hall of Fame resume and legendary status, especially on the grandest stage, the NBA Finals?

Why, Duncan probably did.
