Moreso than his 2002 campaign, Duncan's second consecutive MVP-winning year hit a number of impressive statistical benchmarks. He had fully ascended to the position of Spurs' top player, supplanting fellow Twin Tower David Robinson, and his numbers showed that; Duncan posted career bests in rebounds, assists and blocks to go along with his second-best mark in points per game.
With Robinson playing a reduced role in what was to be his final season, Duncan still easily led the Spurs to 60 wins and a playoff berth. With the MVP (also honored as a member of the All-Defensive First Team) leading the way, the Spurs toppled the Lakers en route to an NBA title.
