Big Fun turns 39 on Saturday. Pounding the Rock celebrates the Spurs' win over the Clippers in Game 2 with a highlight mix of Tim "Stone Buddha" Duncan.

Tim Duncan, without question the greatest power forward of all time and on his way to best-big-man-of-all-time status, played one hell of a game against the Los Angeles Clippers in the second game of their first round series. The legend will turn 39 on the 25th and he led the Spurs to their win over the Clips with 28 points, 11 boards, four assists, two steals and a block. It is completely absurd that he is still doing what he is doing on the biggest basketball stage in the world at his age.

Coming into these playoffs he was already the all-time leader in playoff minutes and blocks. He's also fifth in scoring, third in rebounding and fourth in games played. He's got nothing left to prove to anyone. He's the greatest player of his generation and he's led his team to contention for 18 years. There's nothing left to say about the man. He's beyond words.

Let's celebrate Tim and his great game with a highlight reel to Medeski, Martin and Wood's version of the "ESPN Sportscenter Theme"
