He was named <strong>Season MVP twice and Finals MVP 3 times. </strong>In that run, even though he was not named MVP in 2007 you never hear him complain, in fact when asked if he would vote <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?playerId=1015">Tony Parker</a> for Finals MVP, "he simply said yes as long as we win the title". That's Duncan, <strong>it's never about himself </strong>it's all about the TEAM, all he cares about is Winning.<br/><br/>Duncan is <strong>different from everybody else</strong>, I mean how many NBA stars have the same accomplishment that Duncan has, and yet is <strong>humble enough to admit their mistakes?</strong> Tim also carries himself with class on and off the court and has a great relationship with his Head coach (Gregg Popovich). <strong>No trade demands, no salary or playing time issues</strong>. It's his calm and quiet <strong>personality that stands out and that is why he is embraced and is respected highly </strong>by his teammates, He is their <strong>leader</strong>. He also quietly helps in the community and is a great role model for players and fans alike. His commitment to the team concept and dedication to winning is unmatched.<br/><br/>As it stands right now, Duncan remains the <strong>rock</strong> that keeps them steady and the <strong>drum</strong> that keeps on beating. Yes Tony has been great, Manu is well, Manu but Duncan is the <strong>foundation</strong> of the Spurs and it will remain that way for at least 2-3 years from now... You might say well he's 33 and has injuries the past season and the Spurs has been relying more on Manu and Tony...<br/><br/>I'd say this, Duncan knows whats at stake this upcoming season. When did you ever doubt his ability to <strong>deliver at crunch time?</strong> and There is <strong>NO QUIT</strong> in him. Yes he needs other guys to win it all and maybe more so this coming season. But when it's the <strong>last game in June</strong>, with the title on the line, believe me Duncan's HEART, WILL and DRIVE will make all the <strong>difference...</strong><br/></span> <br/></div><div class="blogger-post-footer">
