Duncan was a formidable player on the court. He earned the reputation of being a clutch player, as evident by his three NBA Finals MVP awards. Duncan would often not keep his best performances for the play-offs - his post-season performance was always more impressive than his regular season stats.
The in-game scores reflect this, including 95 Rebounding and 98 Defensive Consistency as well as an IQ of 98 in Shots to mention some. Unrated or not Duncan was the man to beat. Although he won the majority his team honours in the 1980s, it was in the 1970s when Kareem Abdul-Jabbar made his debut as an individual to reckon within the NBA.
He led the Milwaukee Bucks to an NBA championship in 1971 and they took for them to win another title and led by Giannis Antetekounmpo's team in 2021- while amassing 6 regularly scheduled MVP award between 1972 between 1972 and 1980. Abdul-Jabbar would write himself into the Hall of Fame with five NBA championships with the LA Lakers in the '80s with an overall rating of 99 with NBA 2K22.
His Inside Scoring is a key attribute, while his 7'2 height indicates the player had an unbreakable Rebounding capability and was essentially the definition of a Paint Beast. He is the only player in active play to be included in the top 10 list. LeBron James has been a giant in the sport in the last fifteen years, having been at the top of the game in Jordan's final seasons, Kobe Bryant's era, and into the latest line-up of Durant, Curry and now Luka Doncic.
