Back around mid-January, there was much speculation about Spurs forward Tim Duncan’s shelf life as a member of the San Antonio Spurs coming to a close.
He looked like he was continuing to deteriorate and had become slower and less effective. Then, in late February and early March, Duncan found another gear and spectators saw layups become powerful dunks. While most expected that to be just one throwback game, Duncan started stringing together more and more strong games and he hasn’t stopped yet.
The Tim Duncan that looked to be on his last legs and likely in the last year of his career, found more than another gear, he may have discovered a few more years.
Duncan recently spoke to former Express-News beat writer, and current Yahoo Sports editor Johnny Ludden about adjusting to a role change with the Spurs.
