Tim Duncan speaks out on why it’s ‘special’ to be elected to NBA Hall of Fame

Spurs, Tim Duncan

San Antonio Spurs legend Tim Duncan is going to the NBA Hall of Fame.

The Big Fundamental got the great news on Saturday and talked to Spurs reporters about why it’s so “special.”

Tim Duncan becomes the third Spurs player in franchise history to be elected to the Hall of Fame, joining David Robinson and George Gervin.

Soon enough, Duncan will be joined by Spurs brothers Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili.

Duncan is without a doubt the greatest player in Spurs franchise history. In 1,392 games with the team, Duncan averaged 19.0 points, 10.8 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 2.2 blocks while shooting 50.6 percent from the field. He won five titles, two regular-season MVP awards and three Finals MVPs.

Timmy is currently an assistant coach with San Antonio. He actually coached a game earlier this 2019-20 season when Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich was away from the team.

Of course, the Spurs won the game, too.

Duncan is arguably the best power forward in NBA history. San Antonio fans were lucky enough to have him in town for his entire Hall of Fame career.

It should be fun to hear Duncan speak when he’s inducted. The former superstar doesn’t show it all the time, but he’s actually a pretty funny guy.
