Duncan wins MVP

Posted: Tuesday, May 07, 2002

SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- San Antonio Spurs forward Tim Duncan, among the NBA's leaders in scoring, rebounding and blocked shots, has won the league's Most Valuable Player award, a league source said Monday.

The five-year veteran outpolled New Jersey Nets guard Jason Kidd by a narrow margin, the source said on condition of anonymity.

Voting by a panel of 126 media members took place before the playoffs began.

Duncan's selection will be made public at a Thursday news conference in San Antonio, the San Antonio Express-News reported on its Web site late Monday afternoon.

Duncan is scheduled to be honored on Friday at the Alamodome, prior to Game 3 of the best-of-seven series between the Spurs and Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers won the first game of the Western Conference semifinals on Sunday in the Staples Center, with Game 2 to be played Tuesday.
