i think hes the best ever. hes accomplished so much, and the guy has been consistent his whole career. put it this way--during his rookie year he helped put together one of the biggest turnarounds in nba history in terms of wins from the previous season to the current.
also, think about how close he has been to many more titles. i know close doesnt count, but think about fisher's .4 shot....manu's stupid foul on dirk, etc. the spurs compete year in year out. think about the nba in the last decade, and name ONE team that no one wanted to compete with, every year. every year, it was san antonio. i know the lakers had their run, detroit, etc., but san antonio has been a powerhouse for the last 10 years. thanks to duncan, mostly.
