Default Re: How come Tim Duncan fell off so fast. Faster than Shaq

1. Shaq was much more freak of nature than any other player. And he is really skilled player. (except shooting) Even with Cavs he was dunking on Howard with using his size and strenght.
2. Duncan more like a playoff performer now. Reminds me old days of Reggie Miller about that. I wouldn't surprise if he has big numbers when things are not so good in Spurs.

Well, Garnett's been in the league 16 seasons not 17 and their stats are pretty similar this season, 13.3 and 9 and 14.9 and 9. Except Duncan is playing three less minutes on average.

Going deep into the playoffs on a yearly basis will work your body more than never getting past the first round for the majority of ones career.

More games, more wear and tear.

You probably didn't see Duncan in his prime/peak if you're asking if he was better than Howard is now. IMO, he was slightly better defensively (didn't bite on fakes, kept the ball in play) and much better offensively. The things Howard has on TD are speed, athleticism and dunking ability. Everything else - post moves, passing, shooting, leadership, BBIQ and intangibles go to TD. It's a shame that he never won DPOY after anchoring the best defense in the league for more than a decade.
