The two big men have been a nemesis early on their career both pick first overall. Shaq in 1992 by the Orlando Magic and Tim Duncan by the Spurs. They had been battled when Shaq playing for Los Angeles Lakers, Duncan got the first victory in playoffs in 1999 but O’neal had his good run in 2001-02 and teaming up with Hall of Famers Karl Malone and Gary Payton in 2004. Prior to that, the Lakers dynasty was been destroyed by Tim Duncan, an old David Robinson, 20-year-old Tony Parker and rookie Manu Ginobili in 2003.
We can’t deny the fact that Tim Duncan did this winning thing with a small market in San Antonio.
