Here is his resume, from NBA.com:

Thanks in part to Charles Barkley, many fans of the NBA believe that Tim Duncan is the greatest power forward of all-time. Not that it isn’t necessarily true because Duncan is absolutely one of the best power forwards the game has ever seen, but Barkley has been endorsing that idea for a very long time and even went as far as saying Duncan was better than him.

Much has been made of Tim Duncan’s comments following a Game 6 victory against the Oklahoma City Thunder when he declared that his team would beat the Miami Heat this time.

A rematch between the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Finals seemed questionable before the playoffs began with the West looking so unpredictable and the Miami Heat not looking quite like the consistent championship team they’re supposed to be with Dwyane Wade’s health in question once again. When the Spurs struggled mightily against the Dallas Mavericks in the first round, it made it that much harder to figure out who might come out of the West. Once they got

There was an absolutely terrifying report by New York Post late Sunday afternoon of a senseless, heinous crime that resulted in the death of a six-year-old boy.

Facing elimination once again, Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals was supposed to be do-or-die for the desperate Indiana Pacers. Instead, the team looked flat for much of the night on both ends of the floor, went down by 26 points by half time, and the game was well out of reach by mid-third quarter. Despite having the best record in the East during the regular season, it has been a tumultuous year for the Pacers. They limped their way into the
