Incredible Stat Shows How Dominant the San Antonio Spurs and Tim Duncan Have Been

One argument that will never die among fans and the media will be whether a team and/or player deserves to have the mantle of greatness placed on them. Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs have been in these discussions. Some say they are just a really good team; others call the Spurs a dynasty.

Whose right? Well--this stat may sway the argument one way.


Typically one stat after another is trotted out in these discussions--titles, wins, honors, etc.--in attempt to prove a team and player's worth. The Spurs have definitely had their share of those, but this one is different, and in my opinion tells us a lot more of the team's greatness:

So in 17 seasons the team has only spent 43 days with a sub .500 record. As for the 43 playoff series--that's averaging the semifinal conference round every season for the last 17 years and in more than half of them going to the conference finals!

Now how awesome is that?
