When people ask who is the greatest PF in the game today, people will say Kevin Love, Chris Bosh, Pau Gasol, Dirk Nowitzki, Blake Griffin, but it is rare for a person to say Tim Duncan and the shocking thing about that is he is the greatest PF to ever play the game. The former number 1 overall pick out of Wake Forest in 1997, was nicknamed the human fundamental and that is exactly what he is. Tim Duncan does not bring the flash and the above the rim dunks what you see from players today he just brings championships. All Tim Duncan has done in his career is consistently be a 20 and 10 guy and he is a 2 time MVP winner. He has one of the most unstoppable moves in NBA history with his mid range bank shot, Tim Duncan has changed the game and he does not get the credit he deserves. He is a 4 time NBA champion a three time finals MVP, 14 time All Star, 5 time all defensive player. What do we see on sportcenter every day Blake Griffin dunking the ball, I can only imagine what Tim Duncan is thinking, you can have your dunks and I will take my championship rings and I will continue to be the greatest PF to ever live. Thats Tim Duncan boring but effective.
When you ask people who is the GOAT (greatest of all time) in basketball, 99.9% of people will say Micheal Jordan and I don’t blame them for doing so. Micheal Jodan has became so GOD like that nobody can pass him as the GOAT. I mean it is hard to argue with a guy who averaged 30pts per game throughout his career, but it is not like he was perfect. Micheal Jordan is my favorite player of all time but people act like he never missed a shot, never had a turnover, and never missed a game winner. Like in this debate with Stephan A. Smith and Skip Bayless, it does not matter how good Lebron James is he will never be Micheal Jordan because we don’t want him to become Micheal Jordan. I don’t like Lebron but he is fighting a battled to become the second best player of all time because in our mind nobody has been or will be better than Micheal Jordan There is one more reason why nobody will pass Micheal Jordan and that is his shoes
The most popular shoes in america and thats why nobody will pass him because he is the master at avertisment. Lebron can’t pass him because of the Decision and Kobe can’t pass him because of the rape charge. Micheal Jordan will be the GOAT for life and nobody will change the game as much as MJ did.
