If you've been following the 2012 NBA Playoffs, you'd know that Tim Duncan is playing as if he's much younger than 36 years old. But let's be honest: you were still shocked to see Duncan throw down a one-handed slam on Oklahoma City Thunder shot-blocking maestro Serge Ibaka late in the first half of Game 2 of the 2012 Western Conference Finals.
I'm not even sure Duncan did that in his prime, much less at age 36. When he caught the pick-and-roll pass awkwardly, nobody could have guessed he'd finish like that, much less Ibaka. Instead, Duncan wound up with his right hand and took it right to Ibaka, putting him in a poster that I now really want to buy.
All that makes this block on Russell Westbrook to end the first quarter look rather ordinary.
