Video: Tim Duncan blocks Kevin Durant going to rim

Go ahead, call Tim Duncan old.

He’s not 25-year-old Tim Duncan anymore, but he is still one of the best forwards to ever play the game — and he can still play it. He can still get up and send your weak stuff back. Don’t ask me, ask Kevin Durant.

Hat tip to SLAM.

    It’s like with Kevin Garnett – these Hall of Famers can’t regularly give a team 48 minutes, but they can still give around 30 “elite” minutes per game.

    Even at age 37, you see flashes of why they’re consensus first ballot Hall of Famers, and though I’m not a Celtics or Spurs fan, it’s cool to watch.

      It’s not so much their age, but their basketball IQ. I think age is a bit overrated in the league.

    As a huge Spurs fan, there is nothing cooler than seeing Tim Duncan play the way he’s playing now. Knowng his retirement is coming in the next few years is a truly heartbreaking thing to think about, but the fact that he came into the game and became the greatest power forward ever, and will leave the game reminding everyone of that fact with his play makes it so freakin cool to watch the final chapter of his legacy as a player unfold. Keep goin Timmy!!!

      Even as a Lakers fan, I love watching Duncan play. If you were to take someone who has no idea how to play basketball, and show them one big to model their game after, it would have to be Duncan. I agree, it has been cool watching his career unfold, as he has made for a truly fun rivalry. The Lakers and Spurs have played a ton of high quality, exciting games over the years.

    Reggie Miller’s reaction is the best.
