San Antonio Spurs: Tim Duncan bailed the Spurs out of Game One at home against the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday.
Air Alamo’s Rhys T-J gives his initial reaction to the first of, hopefully, only four total games. Devin Harris played out of his mind, but he was the only Maverick coming off the bench who brought significant energy to help his team.
FanSided’s Josh Hill explains that Tim Duncan may not, just yet, be retiring. The Big Fundamental implied that this may not be his last season, and he wants to continue to play the game he loves.
Will the Spurs sweep the Mavericks?
Jose Grijalva of Project Spurs discusses head coach Gregg Popovich’s monologue on national TV to the great Craig Sager. I’ll be honest, it got me emotional; everyone loves Sager: He asks the best questions, is a hilarious man, and, of course, wears THE worst suits in the NBA (worse than even the players).
