Right, they got great fundamentals.

Im not praising myself to be the genuis at basketball. ITs like watching a game of baseball, where its a pitchers game. Its being played well, but its hardly entertaining.

And come on, every player? I know KG isn't included in that.

you're saying players that can get to the rim the way Parker and Ginobili can, are boring to watch?

From what ive seen, to put it bluntly, yes.Though I would certainly love to have them on my wolves. They play solid, and if your a fan, thats great. I like rooting for the underdog, or celtics.

Hell, the only guy on the team who is entertaining is Bruce Bowen :P

It's not just the fundamentals, it's the unselfish play, the ability of role players to hit big shots, the defensive rotations etc.

And of course KG should try to be more like Duncan, Duncan has four rings and KG has not even made it to the finals. KG is more talented physically and athletically then Duncan, but has never understood the game the way Timmy does. KG is very unselfish, but a lot like Rasheed Wallace, he doesn't always understand what's best for his team. There are times when a post player needs to score 40 points and times when he only needs 15, Duncan gets this, KG and Sheed do not.

Ben Wallace needs to smack dirty Haywood in the mouth

Tim Duncan has benefited from having a better team around him. Better coaching staff, people who actually know how to draft and to sign good players. Something the t-wolves still haven't figured out.

Considering this is his first year since being out of highschool were he hasn't had to do everything by himself(and i do mean everything, he was practically the coach, the point guard and center for t-wolves) hes doing okay.

I guarantee you Tony Parker wouldn't be nearly the player he is if he had been drafted by the Timberwolves. I do like Garnett, but I really think Duncan is better at making the other players around him better.
With Parker, he had a strange approach. He didn't even talk to him in his rookie season. But, I guarantee you it has toughened him up, and along with Poppovich, has really helped him become a better player.
I suspect that Ginobili also wouldn't be nearly as good if he played for a team like the Clippers or Knicks; whoever.
