The top Tim Duncan teammates ever

10. LaMarcus Aldridge

Accolades while with Tim Duncan: All-Star Game in 2016

Stats while with Tim Duncan: 22.3 ppg, 7.7 rpg, 52.3 FG%

Only spent one season next to Duncan, but what a season it was. It didn’t take Aldridge long to fit right into the Spurs’ system.

9. Boris Diaw

Accolades while with Tim Duncan: NBA champion in 2014.

Stats while with Tim Duncan: 7.4 ppg, 4.5 rpg, 3.5 apg, 49.6 FG%

The do-it-all Frenchman was never one to put up big numbers, yet made a significant impact next to Duncan in the last few years. Nothing seems to faze him, which is a good trait with the game on the line.

8. Michael Finley

Accolades while with Tim Duncan: NBA champion in 2007.

Stats while with Tim Duncan: 9.3 ppg, 3.0 rpg, 1.4 apg, 41.7 FG%

No longer the All-Star he once was, Finley joined the Spurs at 32 after being waived by Dallas, where he had spent almost a decade. The Mavs eliminated San Antonio during Finley’s first year there, but he would end up winning the NBA title one year later. He contributed with strong outside shooting (41.9 percent from three) during the playoffs.

7. Malik Rose

Accolades while with Tim Duncan: NBA champion in 1999 and 2003.

Stats while with Tim Duncan: 7.5 ppg, 4.8 rpg, 45.2 FG%

A workhorse for the grit-and-grind Spurs of the late 90’s and early ’00s. Very undersized for the power forward position but also pretty strong, Rose held himself in the paint against towering opponents.

6. Danny Green

Accolades while with Tim Duncan: NBA champion in 2014.

Stats while with Tim Duncan: 9.5 ppg, 3.6 rpg, 1.0 spg, 40.5 3P%

A more talented version of Bruce Bowen, Green has become the ultimate 3-and-D player for the Spurs. He flourished in the Spurs’ paradise after being in and out of the league for much of his first two seasons as a pro.

5. Bruce Bowen

Accolades while with Tim Duncan: NBA champion in 2003, 2005 and 2007; All-Defensive 1st Team in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008; All-Defensive 2nd Team in 2001, 2002 and 2003; led the NBA in three-point shooting percentage in 2002-03.

Stats while with Tim Duncan: 6.4 ppg, 3.0 rpg, 0.8 spg, 40.5 3P%

Super active and borderline dirty defender during a time in which the Spurs were phenomenal but not nearly as entertaining as they are today. Didn’t create much offensively, but he was always good for some timely three-pointers.

4. Kawhi Leonard

Accolades while with Tim Duncan: NBA champion in 2014, Finals MVP in 2014, All-Star in 2016, Defensive Player of the Year in 2015 and 2016, All-Defensive 1st Team in 2015 and 2016, All-Defensive 2nd Team in 2014, All-Rookie 1st Team in 2012, led the NBA in steals in 2015.

Stats while with Tim Duncan: 14.3 ppg, 6.3 rpg, 1.8 spg, 49.9 FG%

Perhaps the best two-way player in the NBA right now. Almost unfair combination of length, athleticism, talent, smarts, motor and focus. More about the game than the flash, which fits right in with Spurs’ culture.

3. David Robinson

Accolades while with Tim Duncan: NBA champion in 1999 and 2003; All-Star in 1998, 2000 and 2001; All-NBA 2nd Team in 1998; All-NBA 3rd Team in 2000 and 2001; All-Defensive 2nd Team in 1998.

Stats while with Tim Duncan: 15.2 ppg, 9.2 rpg, 2.2 bpg, 50.2 FG%

Could never win the ring carrying the team on his back, but with young Tim Duncan formed one of the most devastating inside duos the league has seen. Went out with a bang as he won his second championship in his final game in the NBA.

2. Manu Ginobili

Accolades while with Tim Duncan: NBA champion in 2003, 2005, 2007 and 2014, All-Star in 2005 and 2001, All-NBA 3rd Team in 2008 and 2011, Sixth Man of the Year in 2008, All-Rookie 2nd Team in 2003.

Stats while with Tim Duncan: 14.0 ppg, 4.0 apg, 3.7 rpg, 1.4 spg

Incredible competitor. One of the most talented and clutch international players in NBA history. Known as El Contusion for his knack for putting his body in peril in order to make the right play. Absolutely beloved in San Antonio.

1. Tony Parker

Accolades while with Tim Duncan: NBA champion in 2003, 2005, 2007 and 2014; Finals MVP in 2007; All-Star in 2006, 2007, 2009, 2012, 2013 and 2014; All-NBA 2nd Team in 2012, 2013 and 2014; All-NBA 3rd Team in 2009; All-Rookie 1st Team in 2002.

Stats while with Tim Duncan: 16.6 ppg, 5.9 apg, 0.9 rpg, 49.4 FG%

Sacrificed stats and money for rings in San Antonio. The Frenchman was Duncan’s  best sidekick for a decade as he became one of top point guards in the game and possibly one of the best ever at getting to the rim and finishing. Has lost a step the last couple of years and willingly accepted a secondary role… Just like David Robinson and Duncan did before him.
