The San Antonio Spurs took Tim Duncan with the No. 1 overall pick in the 1997 NBA draft, and they have certainly gotten great value out of that pick.
Duncan's career accomplishments are incredible. He is a 14-time All-Star, two-time NBA Most Valuable Player, three-time Finals MVP and led his team to four championships.
However, there is one more stat that will blow everyone's mind: Duncan has led the Spurs to at least 50 wins in all but one of his 17 seasons in the league, including 15 straight.
Not bad for a franchise that went 20-62 the season before it drafted Duncan.
Had it not been for the lockout in the 1998-99 season, Duncan would have topped the 50-win mark with ease. San Antonio went 37-13 that year, which put the team on pace to win 60 games.
Oh, they also won their first championship that season.
