In the eyes of the media and fans alike, they were not the brilliant, beautiful team that executed basketball at a level which no other team could do. They were an ugly, defense-first 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 a nasty piece of work who would kick an opposing player in the face if he could get away with it, Robert Horry hip-checked Steve Nash into the stands in the playoffs and Manu Ginobili was 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. But do the Spurs care about the fact that those who love them today are also those who castigated them in the past? Not in the slightest. They just keep winning one 50-game season after another, chasing championships and glory. Right in the middle of that, Tim Duncan, oblivious to the roars or boos of the crowd, continues to play, with the same efficiency and genius that he has brought to the NBA over the past 17 years of his career.

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.
