Everyone has a nickname, some boring and others funny. In the NBA, you can only imagine some of the alternate names players call each other.

In Tim Duncan's case, his is pretty self explanatory: "The Big Fundamental."

It sounds pretty boring—though well deserved—and a true reflection of the type of player Duncan has been throughout his entire career.

Bleacher Report sat down with Duncan's former Twin Tower teammate and NBA legend David Robinson to see how the big man evolved into "The Big Fundamental."

Comment below if you think this name fits Duncan or if you have a better one that you can call the future Hall of Fame center.
