Tim Duncan is a dominant player. He can score against the best opponents with a flurry of strong moves near the basket, or he can step outside and bury his classic bank shot. On defense, he controls the paint. He blocks shots and corrals rebounds. Tim Duncan can do it all on the court. And all he does is win. Since joining the San Antonio Spurs in 1997, Duncan has led the team to four NBA championships and twelve straight fifty-win seasons. Author Stew Thornley explores the spectacular career of this all-time great champion.

Gr 3-6-Everything about these titles has been updated through 2011, including the series name (the original editions were published as "Super Sports Star ___"). Written in classic, dramatic sports speak, these books will be popular because of the choice of subjects and the attractive layouts. The covers are an eye-catching and the frequent full-color photos are nicely captioned, but some lack clarity and are a bit blurry. The texts focus on the athletes' professional careers, with very little information about their personal lives. Occasional sidebars add additional interest, and each book ends with career statistics, the player's address, and a brief list for further reading.-Christina Dorr, Hilliard City Schools, OHα(c) Copyright 2011.
