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.
