Spurs icon Tim Duncan hilariously compares Hall of Fame to NBA Finals
San Antonio Spurs legend Tim Duncan is not used to being in the spotlight off the court. After all, while has been a champion multiple times throughout his NBA career, he had never been someone who likes the attention of the media.
With that said, it’s not surprising to see Duncan feeling uncomfortable during his Hall of Fame enshrinement on Saturday. He’s a man of few words and he never really gets that much excited, so imagine what’s going through his mind as he faced a lot of people while reflecting on his career.
Duncan admitted that he’s really nervous for the event, adding that while he has played several NBA Finals and Game 7s with the Spurs, it can be compared to the Hall of Fame induction.
“Been through Finals and Game 7’s. This the most nervous I have been in my entire life,” the Spurs legend hilariously said, per Hoop Hall Twitter.
Who can blame Tim Duncan, though? His often dull reaction has been well documented, and one can say that he is the first cyborg in the NBA before he passed it to Kawhi Leonard.
The Spurs great deserves all the recognition and attention, though. After 19 successful years and five titles, there is no question that he is one of the best players to ever step on the NBA hardwood. Also, with two MVP awards and 15 All-Star appearances, he has undoubtedly established himself as the best power forward in the history of the league.
