9. Tim Duncan, San Antonio Spurs
Still getting it done after all these years, Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs were a tip-in away from possibly claiming another title. He still puts up solid numbers at 18 points and 10 rebounds per game, but what he means to the Spurs goes far beyond anything statistics can measure.
There’s a reason that Spurs coach Gregg Popovich has said he wants to retire when Duncan retires. It’s because Duncan is the greatest power forward of all time. He’s been in the league for 16 years, and every single season the Spurs have been a championship contender, which speaks volumes to how essential he’s been to San Antonio and the league in general.
