No NBA legend has been as underappreciated, as underrated and as under-covered as Tim Duncan. He's (arguably) the top power forward of all-time, a four-time NBA champion, a three-time NBA Finals MVP and a two-time MVP, yet he's often forgotten and often overlooked. It's doesn't make any sense, but that's the way it is and the way it always will be.

Duncan of course doesn't mind, because his personality, demeanor and style of game is really what dictates that. But I don't think anything sums up Tim Duncan's career and evident impact on the NBA quite like this clip from Jeopardy! recently. Observe:



A Spurs center that's a three-time NBA Finals MVP. Hmm. Now I don't blame the contestants for not knowing because not everyone is a big hoops fan, but the guesses? Tony Parker and Carmelo Anthony. It's just comical/crazy that people so easily forget about a player like Tim Duncan. I have no idea how it happens, but it does. Even I'm guilty of it at times. If I'm listing off the top power forwards in the league I'll go Bosh, Pau Gasol, Josh Smith... eventually going, "Oh crap! Tim Duncan! Duh!"

It's the story of Duncan's career, but just because we don't remember doesn't mean he isn't pure greatness.

From College Jeopardy several years ago in the Final Jeopardy round:
A: This person's book starts with a one word-sentence: "Water."

All 3 morons wrote "Rachel Carson."  I had the right response: Helen Keller.

In other words, what passes for knowledge in college these days?

And: Why, especially for $1000 in the game, would these two take a wild guess when they obviously didn't know the facts?  Is that this new (or not so new) guess-learning I've been hearing about?

Tim Duncan has won 3 Finals MVP awards and 4 NBA Championships with the Spurs, but the last Finals win, 2007, Tony Parker won the Finals MVP award.

Haha they guessed MELO and PARKER, how stupid.  But how can you not even guess a center or PF like shaq should at least come to anyones mind. Right?

The girl who answered parker is obviously a desperate house wives fan and the guy who guessed carmello anthony is obviously gay.  Good clip.
