And you really think Tim wouldn't have had as many accolades if he was listed at C? Thats ludicrous.

Y'all wanting to list Tim as a Center is just an attempt to discredit his legacy. Call him what you can't. You can't take away anything from what he's done in his career.

Same as when dudes try to say Tim isn't that great because he never repeated laugh.gif.

Yeah man

Its so ridiculous sometimes.

OK then. Prove it. Post the numbers. And that 4th chip was won with him playing center. There's actual numbers and everything to support it. I don't know what a leg is but Duncan spent the first half of his career playing center nearly half the time and the second half of his career virtually entirely at the 5. These are facts.

Not ludicrous, just more facts. Duncan said so himself for Pete's sake. Guys like shaq and yao would've taken his shine. Facts. Check the numbers.

Not trying to take anything away from him as a player. Just being real about what he is and what he isn't. The proof is there, I've made my case.

If I can find the numbers...I will. But we all know that from 97-00 Tim played PF. A whole lot. You'd either have to be very young, or crazy to think otherwise.

It's ironic that you tried to include '07-08...when he made the "switch" to C to move the numbers to 52% PF- 48% C.....but then go on to say Tim only missed "3 seasons" where Tim clearly played the PF laugh.gif. I said from 97-07. Let's rock with that.

There aren't any accolades Tim would've missed out on from 97-07. And he was rightfully considered a PF at that time.

Later in his career...maybe. But absolutely not in his first 10 years of his career. That's just ridiculous.

Great. And a lot of people that don't know better think he was mostly a PF during his career when he wasn't. You're kinda just talking and not proving anything.

Not ironic at all. I told you the numbers don't go back that far but I'm sure he split time at the 5 then too. I listed 07-08 because.....that's part of 07. I made the distinction between 06-07 and 07-08 to be fair. Even without the extra year it was 55/45%. Not the same "majority" at pf compared to kg, dirk, malone etc who people try to rank duncan over. When I said only missed 3 seasons, I was talking about the missing stats. I'm not skewing anything, just listing facts.

55-60% is a "majority" man. No way other way to slice it.

And you know damn well when I said "97-07" I was talking about ending in the '06-'07 season. Cmon man...that's just you trying to be funny. That's like saying the Spurs were the 2007-2008 champs because they won in 2007.

And lastly, even the "Tim Duncan" is a C guys will tell you Tim played heavy minutes as a PF from 97-00. How would it sound to say Tim Duncan played his Prime as a center when that was only "45"% of the time from 01-07? What would be wise to say is that Tim Duncan split time between PF/C...but in the prime of his career...when Tim Duncan won etc etc....he played the majority of his minutes as a power forward.

The Tim Duncan as the "GOAT PF" talks were going on all the way back in like 2005.

I want to like the Raptors, but OKB has brainwashed me into thinking that no team with DeRozan as its second best player can legitimately compete for a conference title.

I don't know where you got 60% from. For his career from 00-16 it's a 70-30 split in favor of center. Knowing he split time at the 5 his first 3 seasons, including 50 games played in a lockout year, just eyeballing it and that's not enough time to push him over 60/40 tilt to PF for his career so just save yourself the trouble, if the raw numbers even exist.

And no I didn't know what the hell you were talking about laugh.gif. Again that's why I included both seasons in case anybody thought I was trying to skew it. And even still it's nearly half the time at center whereas guys like kg and Dirk actually played the position of pf and deserve recognition. Saying he spent his prime as a center when he played there 45% of the time sounds pretty accurate to me. He split time between the 4 and 5, about half his time. Majority is misleading compared to other more true pfs. And 06-07 he was a center, straight up. 05-06 is the last time you can even try to make a case for him at the 4.

Raptors aren't real. I can't trust a team that got swept by a Randy Whittman coached squad in the first round.

They'll lose the 2-3 matchup to the Hawks in the playoffs.

Now you're just being slow. I am once again talking about the time prime of Tim Duncan's career....the time period where he accomplished the most. Which is from '97-'07. Tim played close to 60% (if not more) of his career as a PF at that time.

How you don't see that as a majority is beyond me. What's an acceptable "majority" number to you. 63? 62? Tim Duncan accomplished most of his accolades in his career playing the majority of his minutes as a PF. This is really a fact man laugh.gif.

No ways to slice it.

Edit*: Just realized who I'm arguing with. A lakers fan. All makes sense why you're trying to discredit now laugh.gif.

Still waiting on you to prove this. By the way, 06-07 doesn't help your case, like at all. Might wanna throw that out.

You haven't really proven anything and are just arguing with facts now so I'm just gonna move on. I'm sure the rest of thread has had it.

Haven't caught on Houston games since Beas signed but his highlights make it look like he's attacking the rim WAY more than he used to. He looks like a lot stronger too. Hopefully he sticks around the league. He's a good dude that works hard and isn't selfish - just gets a bad rap cause of his personality.

I don't cherry pick seasons. 97-07 is considered Tim's prime. And the position stats aren't there from 97-00....but if you don't believe Tim played a majority of his minutes at PF during that time period...you are either slow or young.

I'm done with this as well. It was fun 😎.

I know he's been a pothead but it seems crazy that anybody that talented could be out of the league for a stretch. I've heard stories about him but he really must have been THAT bad off the court laugh.gif

That's exactly how I feel watching him laugh.gif it's weird seeing him play as well as he has knowing he was just in China, and just seems effortless out there. Aside from playing defense pretty well, though he takes a lot of shots, he doesn't take those goofy *** shots that most of the team takes. He's more inclined to go for a sure fire two whether a layup or 15 footer vs a contested 3 at the beginning of the shot clock.

Dirk/KG are neck and neck imo.
