MEET TIM DUNCAN

Tim Duncan of the San Antonio Spurs was the 1998 Rookie of the Year and the only rookie to play in the 1998 NBA All-Star Game. He has learned a lot from his teammate, and mentor, David Robinson. "It's great to play with David," says Tim. "He works so hard."

Tim graduated from Wake Forest University in 1997. Staying in school for four years helped make Tim a stronger all-around player. Tim's court smarts will spur San Antonio on!
