fanatix says: It seems experience can beat youth in the eyes of the NBA general managers after they named San Antonio’s Tim Duncan as the best power forward in the league today. Duncan looked like a rookie at times last season as he put up massive numbers for a player who has been around as long he has. The the kind of production that saw the 37-year-old average 17.8 points, 2.7 assists, 9.9 rebounds at 50.2 per cent from the field that saw him placed on top to go with his on and off-court leadership.
