ESPN Get's it wrong again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NBA playoffs - Top 25 performances ever - ESPN

I am sorry this list is BS. Duncan's game 6 in 2003 in the NBA finals is greatest game of all-time!!!

By the Numbers!!!!

Tim Duncan (21pts/20rebs/10asts/8blks) Close to Quadruple Double (2003 Finals)

This did not even make that top 25!!! BS ESPN!!!!! BS ESPN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No one can match these numbers and clinching game for NBA Title!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But what he did in Game 1 is number 14 "When you talk about total domination in an NBA playoff game, this ranks at or near the very top. San Antonio Spurs big man Tim Duncan completely frustrated the New Jersey Nets at both ends of the floor in Game 1 of the 2003 NBA Finals. Not only did he have a big offensive night, but his effort on the defensive end of the floor was equally noteworthy. His line: 32 points, 20 rebounds, 6 assists, 7 blocks, 3 steals."

But if nobody in LA or NYC watched it, did it happen? Not to ESPN.

If my memory serves me correctly, it was one of the lowest rated playoff series of all time. And there wasn't a single, solitary street cred gangsta player on either roster (well except for maybe Kenyon Martin), so it just wasn't appealing to the casual fan.

Only 2 NBA players have EVER had a quadruple double. Those being Alvin Robertson and Hakim Olojuwon. Of course, their quadruple doubles came in meaningless regular season games. Not in play off game and certainly not in the deciding game of he finals.

More disgusting is that Tim's near quadruple double wasn't even listed in the article's honorable mentions.

I sent John Hollinger an e-mail expressing my dismay.

Agreed, this is rediculous. Although, surprisingly, BSPN did actually mention Tim Duncan in all the hoopla that has followed Bron bron winning his first title. apparently only 3 players have ever led an NBA championship team in scoring, rebounding and assists throught the playoffs. Magic, Timmay, and now Lebron... I liked the list better before last night!

Well, yeah, but it wasn't on ESPN, so it doesn't count.

I am sure Stephen Jackson was on our roster who is alot tougher than the fake tattoo thugs in the game (He is from Houston and was a blood right?). But I agree with most of what you said there.
