Poll: Is Tim Duncan in the NBA all-time top 5? . . .top 10?

Hey Spur lovers!  I got a question for you to ponder during the slow parts of tonight's LAL @ SAS match up.  And given the way both teams have been playing I am expecting plenty of garbage time tonight.  (I personally will consider it a moral victory if the Lakers are within 10 at any point during the 2nd half.) 

So here's the question. 

During one of the recent TNT halftime/post-games Charles, Kenny & Ernie were discussing whether Kobe is in the top 5 players to play in the NBA all-time.  You obviously don't need to comment on Kobe unless you want to.  (I can't imagine many Spurs fans ranking him too high.)  But it got me to thinking.  Is Tim Duncan in the top 5 NBA players of all-time?  If not, is he in the top 10?

Just to prime the discussion, here are the players they ranked ahead of him in no particular order:

Jordan
Magic
Bird
Wilt
Russell
Kareem

PS.  I am just curious what someone who loves the Spurs would think.  If this is too trollish or whatever, feel free to delete it.  No big deal.
