Timmy, you annoyed me for 19 long years. You beat me over and over again and seemed not to care when we beat you. Your quiet reign over the NBA happened at the same time as Kobe’s loud reign over the NBA. You were quiet but whiny, everything I hated. I had to watch you win 5 championships and hoist 5 Larry O’Brien trophies, and again you didn’t even look that happy doing it. You aged gracefully and continued to be a thorn in my side. And you went out silently, like the quiet superstar you are. Thank you for 19 years. Thanks you for being awesome.
