Another big man who was a rookie at the time (Bryant Reeves maybe?) basically dominated him and there were very real whispers that Duncan may be a bust. Of course, he was just working on a weak part of his game and has been a dominate post player since then.

It was actually Greg Ostertag, who was on the Jazz summer league team.

TD finished w 0 points and he did everything left-handed that game.
