Tim Duncan keeps winning basketball games for the San Antonio Spurs. In fact, after beating the New York Knicks, no one has ever won more for a single team than the legendary power forward. Elias Sports Bureau reports via ESPN.com:
Tim Duncan scored 16 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in the Spurs’ 94-84 victory over the Knicks on Monday. Duncan has 954 regular-season wins with the Spurs, passing John Stockton (953 with Jazz) for the most victories by a player with one team in NBA history. Rounding out the top three is Stockton’s teammate Karl Malone, who had 919 wins during his tenure with Utah.
Duncan has a 954-381 (.715) regular-season record with the Spurs. Among the 10 players with at least 700 wins with one team, only one has a higher winning percentage with that team: Duncan’s teammate Tony Parker. With Monday’s win, Parker improved to 728-284 (.719) in his Spurs career.
This milestone came just a few days after Duncan was a part of the trio to win the most games with one team. He, Manu Ginobili and Parker have combined to notch 541 wins as a group, according to NBA on ESPN.
In addition to all that, according to Basketball-Refernece.com, Duncan has the fourth-most wins (151) in playoff history behind Derek Fisher (161), Robert Horry (155) and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (154). All three of those players suited up for more than one team, so Duncan has that record too. And a trip to the Conference Finals could see him take the overall lead. Abdul-Jabbar has the record for overall wins (1,074) with Robert Parish second (1,014) and Duncan third.
So, in sum: Duncan gets wins.
