The quiet efficiency and "we as a team" attitude of the Spurs' iconic big man is a cover for a voracious stat stuffer.Tim Duncan has been relentlessly forcing his way up the NBA All Time lists this year to the amazement and disinterest of most of the national sports media. With 15 more rebounds, The Big Fundamental will tie The Big Shaq-tus/Shamrock/Diesel et cetera for #13 on the All Time Rebound Leaders list. 114 more blocks will have him at #7 with Shaq on that All Time list. Granted, Shaq's got quite a lead on the All Time Points Leader list, but #23 is nothing to sneeze at with 23,515 points and counting.
Have you heard about any of this from any media not based in San Antonio? Ironically, the only person I hear consistantly (if only occasionally) laud Timmy is Shaq. Of course, if someone was about to pass me up on some All Time lists, I'd say they were pretty good, too!
I just wanted to take a moment and appreciate the amazing Tim Duncan, in all his apparent boringness. Thank you Tim.
