In the NBA Finals the competition gets fiercer than ever, and it becomes impossible for one player to single-handedly win four out of seven games. The other team, indicated by the fact that they’ve gotten there too, can stop just one man.

From the outset, let me say that Tim Duncan is not on this list purposefully. He will be a huge factor in what the Spurs need to do, but he is neither going to—nor does he need to—have his best series ever. Nor is he going to need to step up beyond what he has been doing all postseason. It’s out of respect, not disrespect, that he isn’t on this list.
