Welcome to Smallthoughts: Trivia Thursday. Here is this week’s question
The answer will be posted on Friday.
Tim Duncan because of his simple but effective style of play (thus earning him the nickname “The Big Fundamental”). Duncan is one of those players that is easy to root for because he places winning above everything else. Alot of players talk about but Duncan is about winning. Taking a lesser role, to make the team better. He is a rare player in action. He is also rare in one other aspect …he completed all 4 years of college before jumping to the NBA. Think about how the NBA has become jump from High School or to a one and done college career, the thought of a premier player playing all 4 years has become …well old school. Today thought we spotlight the career of Tim Duncan enjoy the highlights courtesy of youtube. Smallthoughts: Old School Tuesday spotlights…Tim Duncan.

I remember watching this fight rooting for Holmes. I knew little of Holmes and his skills other than he was a sparring partner of Muhammad Ali. Norton had lost twice to Ali in two hotly controversial decisions, yet was crowned the WBC champion when Leon Spinks beat Ali for his title and 6 months later gave Ali a rematch. Norton was now the WBC champ with Larry Holmes the up and coming contender. The stage was set for one of the more tightly contested fights in the heavyweight division.
Larry Holmes the challenger, Ken Norton the WBC Heavyweight Champion. Get your popcorn ready. This is going to be good. Enjoy!
