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.

If TD played in New York, LA or Chicago, he would be the object of the media' affection but he isnt.

He has been the best player of this generation, post MJ, along with Shaq.

People talk about LeBron, who will be great and already is, Wade, Kobe, Nash, whoever else.

TD's name goes ignored. Too bad because we have seen greatness for all of these years and too bad idiots who dont know about the game think he's boring.

TD is spoiled tho. If I was as great as he was, id be sooo pumped that i didnt have to deal with media BS. He has his money (because the SA org. and fans know and respect him) and he gets to live a good life without too much interefernce.

Lucky! Cant wait till tonight tho, series is fun to watch, as is Lebron!

You don't need hype when you've got hardware.....and Timmy's got plenty of that.

I'll take three rings, three Finals MVP's and two league MVP's over being the object of ESPN & Nike's affections.

Cavs v. Pistons is fun to watch.

Cleveland is playing very hard, and defensive game all the way. Cavs have gotta be able to get open and make their shots. Pistons playing zone D, so they will get their shots.

Rack my Clips for hanging in....

2-2 going back to Phoenix.

I'm thinking that whoever wins game 5 wins the series.

Kaman getting hurt actually may have saved the Clippers. He truly is lost in this series save one game. Magette is a much better starting option.

Takes Marion off Cassell and opens things up for my boys. Mike D knows his ****.

Going to Vegas this weekend and I have tickets to The DaVinci Code on Thurs night.

May ditch both to watch BB ball games. Or maybe find a sportsbook on SAT night. Have to make my annual bet on the Raiders winning the Super Bowl...Save it ****ers.....

I'm happy to see the L.A. stepchildren making a run.

How's that taste Jason In LA?

LeBron just isn't there in terms of big game production.

Give him a few years and he will own this league though.

Misses a key free throw.

I watched Kobe do the same thing vs. the Spurs back in the day.

His day will come.
