10 Awesome Stories and Quotes About Tim Duncan
Former NBA player Etan Thomas, who played against Duncan during his time in the NBA, shared a great story on him playing against Duncan.
“So we’re playing the Spurs and I get the ball on the post. I inside pivot and sweep to the middle for my jump hook and he blocks it,” Thomas wrote on his Facebook page.
“So as we are running down the court he says to me – ‘that was a good move but you have to get more into my body so you can either draw the foul or I can’t block it’,” Thomas said.
“So I didn’t know if he was talking noise or what so just kind of looked at him confused and said ok. Then, a few plays later I did it again got more into his body and he couldn’t block it,” Thomas said. “I missed the shot and he looked at me and said much better and kept playing.”
“Tim Duncan is honestly one of the nicest guys in the NBA and one of the best power forwards ever. Respect,” said Thomas.
