Starting Sunday with the opponents he dominated the most, I've been celebrating Tim Duncan with an article each morning all week. Now it's time to turn the mic to all of you. The San Antonio Spurs are about to add a lot more hardware to the Basketball Hall of Fame. With Tim Duncan's induction on Saturday, another five NBA championships will be added to highlight one of the winningest players in the game's history.
When the ping pong ball fell in San Antonio's favor in the 1997 NBA Draft selection, no one could've known just how huge of an impact that would have on the franchise and city. Speaking for myself, I can say having Tim Duncan representing my city changed my life in many ways.
I've previously gone into extensive detail about how the Spurs' incredible 22-season playoff streak affected me in one of my favorite pieces I've ever written. Now, it's time to turn to others I've had the privilege to get to know in my few years of covering the team as a writer and site expert.
For the past few weeks, I reached out to several long-time Spurs fans, many of which you might recognize if you've ever ventured into #SpursTwitter or read online Spurs content. After each story, I'll also provide my own commentary and personal recollection of the moments if possible.
Without further delay, let's jump into your favorite memories of The Big Fundamental's 19-year career.
