Tim Duncan, Spurs Agree to 3-Year Deal: Can They Win Another Title?
Tim Duncan is back with the San Antonio Spurs for one final run. The future Hall of Famer agreed to a three year deal that should be worth around 36 million dollars when it is all said and done. The team is still trying to come to terms on the money value.
This is probably the last chance for this Spurs roster to make a run for a title. A lot of people, including myself, thought the Spurs were going to walk over the Oklahoma City Thunder. Unfortunately, that was not the case as the Thunder moved on to the Finals and the Spurs went home.
Duncan still has something left in the tank and he is a big part of what the Spurs do. He is the perfect example of a true professional and he can still dominate in spurts. He has become more cerebral the later he has gone in his career and has changed his game to fit the style of play.
Remember, Tim Duncan has won four titles and you can argue that each title came during a different time period in the league. Duncan won in a lockout, he won once the game opened up, he won once the game slowed down. Really, Duncan adapted to rule changes better than any player ever.
Tim Duncan is going to be a first ballot Hall of Famer and he is the best power forward to ever walk out on to the court. Hopefully he can finish his career on a strong note.
