Tim Duncan and David Robinson created arguable the greatest front court of all times
Their team work led to superb defense in the low post. They dominated the boards, and were terrific scorers on offense when they played together. Both put up excellent numbers. Well, Robinson did until he got up there in age.
When they were defending, Duncan was the one who did the work more on the ground. Robinson was in the air, blocking shots, and both were very active on the glass.
The Admiral was so unselfish and latter, he relied more on his ability to nail the jump shot while he let the young power forward do the work inside the post.
The Twin Towers helped the San Antonio Spurs to win 3 titles in the span of a few of seasons. When The Admiral retired, Duncan took over as the leader and guided the Spurs to another championship.
