Two years ago today, Tim Duncan joined George Gervin and David Robinson as prominent members of the San Antonio Spurs to join the Naismith Hall of Fame.
Duncan spent his entire NBA career — 19 seasons — with the Silver & Black racking up a bevy of accolades including 1998 Rookie of the Year, two MVPs, five NBA Championships, three Finals MVPs, All-Star co-MVP in 2000, fifteen All-Star appearances, and 2015’s NBA Teammate of the Year (just to name a few).
Here’s his enshrinement speech for the 2021 induction.
Last year Manu Ginobili joined the HoF and this summer Tony Parker will round out the Big 3 inductions along with Gregg Popovich, Becky Hammon, and Pau Gasol who spent some twilight years in San Antonio.
Enjoy this trip down memory lane.
We’re about due for another generational talent, don’t you think?
