VIDEO: Birthday boy Tim Duncan's top 5 plays of the season

Soobum Im / USA TODAY Sports

Tim Duncan is officially 39 years old and still balling out of control. 

The San Antonio Spurs power forward turned another year older on Saturday, April 25 - a day after he helped San Antonio destroy the Los Angeles Clippers in Game 3 of their first-round playoff series.  

Duncan seems ageless, though. After being drafted by the Spurs in 1997 as the first-overall pick, he has spent his entire professional career as a pillar of the squad. The Big Fundamental has some serious hardware to match his almost two-decade-long NBA march. He's been an NBA champion five times, NBA finals MVP three times, and MVP twice.

To commemorate what should be a national holiday, we take a look at the top five plays of the 2014-15 season into the first round of the playoffs.
