The San Antonio Spurs have found their dynasty built upon the foundations of Tim Duncan's excellence. His career has been nothing short of constant success, even if it hasn't been broadcast on every commercial. With his career winding down, there are still a few things that Duncan can strive for. Here are the top five things Duncan has left to accomplish.

Boston Celtics' great Robert Parish holds the record for most career games played at 1,611. Tim Duncan has played 1,254 games over 17 years. This might be slightly out of reach to say the least, but if anyone can continue to defy the laws of time and nature, it's Duncan.

If the Spurs would have put the Heat away like they were supposed to in their first NBA Finals meeting, Duncan would already have his sixth ring. Since they wanted to do it the hard way, Duncan will have equal himself to Michael Jordan this upcoming year. With pretty much the same team coming back, Duncan should be getting his new ring fitted already.

3. Third NBA MVP

During his illustrious NBA career, Duncan has been named NBA MVP twice - in 2002 and 2003. While he stands little to no chance of catching LeBron James (four) or Michael Jordan (five), Duncan could further his standing as one of the game's all-time greats with a third MVP award.

The Spurs have spread out their championship dominance throughout the years, but never have been able to put together a consistent championship run. Tim Duncan can make franchise history by attaining his first repeat title run of his career.

This isn't exactly the greatest accomplishment of a player's career, but most players can't attain this one. Tim Duncan has the opportunity to win and leave the game a winner, unlike many of his counterparts, who leave the game as a shell of themselves. To leave a victor and leave behind only fond memories to Spurs' and basketball fans alike, would be the greatest accomplishment of Duncan's career.

If that floater wasn't epic enough, in the second-half Curry added this drive in which he pulled the magic out on Jonathon Simmons.
