San Antonio Spurs: Happy Birthday, Tim Duncan!
Today, the San Antonio Spurs‘ franchise cornerstone turns 38 years old.
“Tim Duncan making the salary he’s making after being part of a dynasty—not a dynasty, I wouldn’t call San Antonio a dynasty—a force, a great force. They haven’t been able to win consecutive championships but they’ve always been there. San Antonio has had a wonderful run through Tim’s tenure there as a player. He’s agreed to take a salary cut so other players can play with him so they can be this good. And that’s the beginning of team play.”
As far as these 2014 NBA Playoffs are going, Dallas Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle isn’t content with a series split as the games now shift from San Antonio to Dallas. Who knows what Carlisle is thinking because the fact that a No. 8 seed has even won a game over a No. 1 seed is a surprise to most. Michael Rehome of Project Spurs relays Carlisle’s thoughts.
Finally, our own Rhys T-J at Air Alamo looks forward past the first round of the NBA Playoffs in the tough Western Conference. Though after watching Game 2, the San Antonio Spurs should focus on the round at hand before looking onward to either the Portland Trail Blazers or Houston Rockets.
Will San Antonio Win Game 3?
