1-on-1 with the previous no. 21
A forgotten year in San Antonio Spurs history, the 1996-1997 season in many ways set the foundation for the culture of the Spurs. Before the multiple foreign All-Star imports stolen with late draft picks, or mining Europe for role players, or even before Tim Duncan--back when an inexperienced front office Gregg Popovich was acquiring the Vernon Maxwells, Charles Smiths, and Carl Herreras of the world--there was a MASH unit of players led by a future hall of famer wearing a familiar no. 21 jersey.

Tim Duncan, grumpier with age
The wave of milestones keep rolling in, and so far as Tim Duncan is concerned, he’d rather they not be.

If Duncan had his way, he’d rather not have just accomplished either, let alone be reminded.
