He is #15 in the league in efficiency per 48 minutes, after eliminating players with under 5 games played. He has nothing to prove individually and as usual is focused not on winning the regular season but on the championship which means playing within the scheme as a team and not hurting himself. Come the playoffs expect to see Tim take control on demand. The regular season is here to allow his team to grow around him, especially the younger guys such as Blair and Splitter who benefit from the minutes Tim is on the bench. Expect Tim's minutes per game to fall further if the Spurs continue winning. He is older meaning he does not recover as fast from nightly pounding, but his game has never depended on jumping higher than his opponent so I think he still has the edge.
