Tim Duncan’s still got it, Mavs find out hard way (VIDEO)

Mar 15, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

Tim Duncan is having a resurgent year — 16.6 points and 9.6 rebounds a game with a PER of 23.9. More importantly, he is anchoring a defense that is back to being top three in the NBA, which is why the Spurs are more of a contender now than they have been the past couple seasons.

The Mavericks knew all that going in but couldn’t stop him as he dropped 28 points and 19 rebounds on them. It was a throwback game in a throwback season for Duncan, and above you can see some of the key highlights.

    Greatest power forward in the history of the NBA and probably the most under-appreciated stars. As a sixers fan, he reminds me of a more athletic and versitile Moses Malone. I personally think that Ducan is the best player of his era. I know most will probably say Kobe, but in hindsight, if both players were being drafted today, I’d take Duncan in a heartbeat over Kobe. He makes everyone better on the offensive AND defensive end, which is pretty special. He does all this without the drama.

      No drama, no theatrics, no soap opera. David Stern hates players and teams like this, because they don’t sell as much “stuff” and get in the way of Stern’s favorites winning titles.

        Well said, all.

        And he has no ego. The man allows himself to be coached, by the best in the game.He is very reasonably paid. It’s about the team, and the ‘system.’ When a player goes down, you plug in another part, and barely miss a beat.
