    I don’t understand the comparisons to David or Tim playing-wise because he’s a ball handling perimeter player, but he certainly is similar in terms of early accomplishments and demeanor. Like some have articulated, if I could pick one superstar in the league in a fantasy draft, he’d be my number 1 pick. I wouldn’t be mad if they rang again this year.

    He's paid to say things like this.
    Just wait for Perkins to say Duncan was a scrub, in retrospect.

    Game 4 loss at Milwaukee, ouch.
    10 point lead late 3rd, not even 2 minutes into 4th and it's tied.

    Blown out in 4th.

    Part of being Timmy Dunks is inspiring your teamates. Freak is gonna have to do that because as many props as Al Horford deserves for that 4th qtr, the Celts team support blew away the Bucks players outside of Freak.

    Giannis is great, but is he actually making teammates better?

    Greek Freak over KG. Greek Freak is on Dirks level. Did one big carry. He might do another. Then that's Hakeem territory.

    If he wins this year it will be a big carry, but lets not act like last year was something special. That team was build to win a ring and they did. Also got lucky they faced an injured Brooklyn team. If just Harden would have been 100% they would have been ed.

    over KG sure, Dirks carry... like texas_ranger pointed to, had a fully healthy Heatles team tho tbh. Nothing Giannis can control, but like toronto beating a crippled GS team, it aint as impressive as that Dirk carry, def not Hakeem/TD

    I love Giannis, but I can’t imagine Timmy ever letting a dude like Horford punk him like he did to Giannis in game 4.

    Look I'm as much of a Duncan fan as anyone else, but let's be real here - all good defenders get punked once in a while

    i think theres a difference between a young LeBron dunking on you and a 36 year old Al Horford destroying you. I dont remember any 36 year old destroying Tim.

    And it wasn’t just a play or two either, old man Horford just completely outplayed Giannis in that second half

    The stare down seemed super lame.
    Had Horford been doing some cheap shotting or something?

    Freak still did 42/12/10/8 so while i have nothing but props for old Al in the 2nd half it was still a good game by Freak.

    But ya getting punked by Al not good on Freaks resume if he wants to enter young Duncan territory.

    I'm pretty sure I read that Lebron kept a picture of that dunk as it was a big deal to him at the time. I also recall TD blocking a dunk attempt of Lebron's in the finals that same year. That's the difference. TD didn't give a if he got dunked on in a random early regular season game. His focus was a different level in the playoffs, and he returned the favour on the biggest stage.

    No, but in an era of superstars searching for the easy way out, I will always have respect for him for staying in Milwaukee and making a championship winning franchise out of them.

    No, he needs to do more in the playoffs. Not necessarily RINGZ so much as just proving he can elevate his game. It wasn't until the Nets series last season that he started to do so.

    And I don't want to hear about superior catch all metrics. Today's players have significant advantages (less minutes, superior pace, spacing, less contact, one big lineups/teams mostly punting the offensive glass, etc.).
    guy scored 50 last year to clinch a ring

    I clearly alluded to longevity.

    I didn't say anything about him being unable to hit that level.

    1999 Timmy? Sure, why not. Let's chat in 17 years for the career comparison.

    Pretty sure Tim doesn't care, so I don't know why we Spurs fans should care either.

    This comparison isn't totally preposterous, but it's still a firm no.

    The perfection of Tim's career is just difficult to replicate.

    I dunno....
    Down 11 with 8 minutes then down 6 at 105-99 after Ole Al Horford put down a dunk....

    Freaks three pointer with a buck 40 and subsequent steal of Smart for the turnover leading to the 105-105 Jrue trey was pretty clutch.

    And lets not forget that 2nd foul shot Greek missed on purpose so Bobby Portis could make the go ahead short banker.

    If he rings again, definitely put him over Kevin Garnett. Still would say Duncan is better.

    Dunkers 1999 - 2002 cast better then Freaks imo.
    Particularly with Middleton out.
    Of course Duncan got robbed when Juwan Coward took out Derek Anderson.
    But i think even an 80% David Robinson is pretty good.
