Tim Duncan posterizes Father Time (and Serge Ibaka)

by

Any great defensive player will tell you if you stick around long enough, challenge enough shots, eventually you’re going to end up on the wrong end of someone’s highlight reel.

It’s an inevitable part of playing defense in a league with the most gifted and creative athletes in the world.

Over the long haul the truly great defensive players end up with the percentages in their favor. The equally brave, but less talented, end up Shawn Bradley. Throughout history no one has a track record as pristine as Father Time.

There will come a day when Tim Duncan launches himself towards the rim only to find Father Time blocking his path. In the meantime there is only Serge Ibaka. Poor Ibaka.

    I want to print that poster size and hang it on my wall.

    Maybe I’m nit-picking, but how is that a no-call? Last time I checked when a defender wraps his arm around your shooting arm he’s fouling you. It seems like it wasn’t called just because Duncan looked so unaffected by it and Ibaka already looked humiliated. But, seriously, no call on that? Can I get an And1?
    Sweet depiction, by the way.

    I think there was no call because pretty much all of the contact came after the ball already went through the net. Duncan’s attempt at the rim wasn’t affected by any contact at all, it just happened in the aftermath, when the buildings were crumbling and lights flickering.

    How can you NOT love this poster?

    And this wasn’t the best one. I thought the one over Ibaka in the playoffs last year was better.

    Umm why does Father Time have the Grim Reaper’s scythe?

  • DorieStreet

    The Grim Reaper and his scythe represent a “harvesting of souls”;, you could surmise Father Time and his scythe are harvesting the year’s “time” that is coming to an end (never to exist again). The scythe could also represent the “harvesting” of people who have passed away during the 12 month calendar cycle.

    Second that. Need to get this in print for all Spurs fans to enjoy hanging on their vertical enclosures.

    Tim to Time…”Not yet dude. I’ve got some unfinished business.”
