NBA stars that played for one team #1: Tim Duncan

Tim Duncan is nearly universally regarded as the greatest power forward of all time but was also a game-changing player due to his unwavering loyalty to the Spurs. Duncan spent 19 seasons with the Spurs and helped build a legacy that is unlikely to be equaled by most young star players in today’s game.

Instead of leaving to join a super team, which he had the chance to do in 2000 with Tracy McGrady and Grant Hill, he opted to stay and build, and build he did. He was a winner, plain and simple, winning more than 1,000 regular-season games in his career, more than some franchises.

In fact, thanks to Duncan, the Spurs, despite being a small-market team, have the highest winning percentage in NBA history, not to mention the five championships.

Duncan wrapped up his incredible career as the only player to have at least 25,000 points, 15,000 rebounds, 3,000 blocks, and 3,000 assists.

He was a 15-time all-star, made 15 All-NBA teams, made 15 All-NBA defense teams, won back-to-back league MVPs, and won three NBA Finals MVPs, doing all of that while in San Antonio, which is impressive to say the least.
