Hard to believe it has been 16 years since the San Antonio Spurs drafted Tim Duncan in the 1997 NBA Draft but has it been one fantastic ride and it will continue for a couple more.
From four NBA titles, countless All-Star appearances, NBA MVP trophies and much more, there is no doubt Duncan has his passport stamped for the Basketball Hall of Fame once he calls it quits.
Looking back, though, it is hard to imagine one player would have this impact on the Spurs and the community of San Antonio.
Check out a young Duncan, and a giddy Gregg Popovich and Peter Holt, introducing No. 21 to the Alamo City back in 1997. Just look at how huge TD's welcome was!
