Playoff highlights

We don't care if he can be boring to watch; Tim Duncan is one of the best ever to play the game, period. He's a guy who not only has gotten it done in the regular season, but also elevates his game in the playoffs. His PER (25.1 vs. 24.7), points (22.1 vs. 20.2), rebounds (12 vs. 11.2), and blocks (2.5 vs. 2.2) are all better in the playoffs, he has never had a regular season winning percentage worse than .610, and has only failed to get out of the first round just three times in his 16 seasons. Tack on three Finals MVP awards and four rings, and you've got one of the best of all-time.
