Few NBA Hall of Famers have been as understated as Tim Duncan, and few have his credentials: 4x NBA champion, 2x MVP, 14x all-star, 10x NBA first team, 1998 Rookie of the Year, etc. Duncan has been more concerned with letting his actions, not his words, prove his worth in the NBA, and his actions have spoken loudly. The Spurs center/power forward/generally awesome big man, had an immediate impact, leading the team to their first NBA Championship in his second season and winning league MVP in 2002 and 2003
Timothy Theodore 'Tim' Duncan (born April 25, 1976) is an American professional basketball player who currently plays for the San Antonio Spurs of the National Basketball Association (NBA). The 6-foot 11-inch (2.11 m), 255-pound (116 kg) power forward/center is a four-time NBA champion, two-time NBA MVP, three-time NBA Finals MVP, and NBA Rookie of the Year. He is a 13 time NBA All-Star and the only player in NBA history to be selected to both All-NBA and All-Defensive Teams during each of his first 13 seasons. Duncan started out as a swimmer and only began playing basketball in ninth grade after Hurricane Hugo destroyed the only Olympic-sized pool on his home of St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands. He soon became a standout for St. Dunstan's Episcopal High School, and had an illustrious college career with the Wake Forest University Demon Deacons, winning the Naismith College Player of the Year, USBWA College Player of the Year and John Wooden awards in his final year.
