Kurzbeschreibung

Learn the Incredible Story of Basketball Superstar Tim Duncan!



Read on your PC, Mac, smartphone, tablet or Kindle device!

In Tim Duncan: The Inspiring Story of Basketball's Greatest Power Forward, you'll read about the inspirational story of basketball's greatest power forwards Tim Duncan. Tim Duncan has kept the San Antonio Spurs relevant in the NBA for every year of his long NBA career. In this short book, we will learn about how Duncan became the incredible power forward that he is today. Starting first with a look into his childhood and early life, we'll learn about Tim Duncan prior to entering the NBA, along with his time in the NBA playing alongside David Robinson to his time playing with Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili leading the San Antonio Spurs.



Tim Duncan is easily one of the greatest, if not the greatest power forward to play the game of basketball. For a man who once was just a kid fulfilling a promise to his parents to earn a college degree at Wake Forest, Tim Duncan has come a long way over the course of his basketball career.



Here is a preview of what is inside this book:

  • Early Life and Childhood

  • College Years at Wake Forest

  • Duncan's NBA Career

  • Tim Duncan's Personal Life

  • Tim's Impact on Basketball and Beyond

  • Duncan's Legacy



An excerpt from the book:


Tim Duncan sits front row to praise for San Antonio’s system. He is acclaimed by many as the greatest player of his generation, and NBA players, media personalities, and fans alike are virtually unanimous in praising him. In Game 7 of the 2013 NBA Finals, Duncan missed a crucial layup in the final minute, slapped the floor in frustration, and was on the verge of tears in the postgame press conference answering for the loss and San Antonio’s ultimate defeat. For other stars, such a sequence would be viewed as fragility and a lack of clutchness. For Duncan however, in light of everything he has accomplished and who he is, no one complained; in fact, the floor slap has been used as a sign of Duncan’s greatness. That single burst of emotion spoke volumes coming from such a stoic man; had it been anyone else that had done it, such a display of raw emotion would have likely been overlooked. Through great personality and expert game play, Tim Duncan has elevated the Spurs to stand amongst the top of the Western Conference for over a decade.


This is incredible for those of us who recognize that a half-decade ago, the Spurs were the most hated team in the league. In the eyes of the media and fans alike, they were not the brilliant and beautifully effective team that executed basketball to a level which no other team could. They were an unpopular, , defense-first, essentially boring team that would never hesitate to use dirty tricks, flop, or work the referees to beat more exciting, fun teams like the “Seven Seconds or Less” Phoenix Suns. Bruce Bowen was considered a nasty piece of work who would kick an opposing player in the face if he could get away with it, while Robert Horry hip-checked Steve Nash into the stands in the playoffs, and Manu Ginobili was generally deemed a cowardly flopper. Duncan may not have received quite the ire of his teammates, but he was boring. A superstar without a doubt, but one who got to play on stacked teams, unlike Kevin Garnett and Kobe Bryant, who struggled on mediocre teams in the mid-2000s.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent biography on Tim Duncan 24. April 2014

Having recently read and thoroughly enjoyed "James Harden: The Inspiring Story of One of Basketball's Premier Shooting Guards" by Clayton Geoffrey, I was excited to discover he had also written this book about Tim Duncan, another of my NBA idols, as well as books on Steve Nash and Stephen Curry.

Mr Geoffrey is obviously an NBA fan and has researched his subject thoroughly. This book is a great biography of one of the greats of the game. The Author goes back to Duncan’s childhood and tells how he got into basketball in the first place. He then goes on to talk about his early difficulties adapting to the college game before moving on to a discussion of his highly successful NBA career. The book has many interesting facts I was previously unaware of.

All in all this was another great read. I’m looking forward to reading more of Clayton Geoffrey’s work in the future.

Highly recommended!
