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 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
. 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.
