LeBron James lost to Tim Duncan’s Spurs for the 21st time in 36 games Thursday night, but he was not sour grapes about it afterwards and had very nice words for Duncan on Instagram, going as far as to call him the best power forward ever.

Don't know how many times we got left to go against one another but I've never have and I never will take them for granted! The consistency you've shown over the years goes unmatched and as a competitor it's always a treat to be competing on the same floor as you! Being a professional(professionalism) is so overlooked in our sport but I always knew who I could look to if I ever wasn't professional about this lovely game and that's You. From one King to Another and to the Greatest PF to Ever play this game, all Love and Respect Timmy D!
Duncan and San Antonio have been one of LeBron’s biggest roadblocks on his way to championship rings with two defeats (2007 and 2014) in the Finals against them in three tries.
