...But if you want to point to one reason an NBA championship banner does not hang in Arco Arena, it's been a lack of greatness on the Arco floor. It's been a lack of a Shaquille O'Neal, who could impose his will on a playoff series; a lack of a Kobe Bryant, who can do things with a basketball that no other human can do.
Or it's been a lack of a Tim Duncan, who can grasp the rock in his big paws, back his huge behind toward the basket and do whatever he pleases.
