My only hope is those two old decrepit bastards Kobe, and Duncan meet one last time in the WCF. Would love to see one of them get number 6. The last showdown.

Realistically, Kobe would have to take his talents to Oklahoma City if he were face off against Duncan one last time in WCF

Spurs probably won't even make the WCF. Probably be the Clippers, and Thunder. I hope the Thunder sweep them.

Who?

The Spurs have always been killers. The Clips, and Thunder just got a bit more experience, and younger legs. I do hope I am wrong. Fuck them teams.
post #17961 of 27239
Fuck the entire Western Conference.
post #17962 of 27239
In your dreams.

The East is gonna fucked for another decade.
post #17963 of 27239
Spurs is the same team as last year with more experience for the young'ns and they got kyle anderson. No way they don't make the WCFs again and are the favorites to go to the finals.

I think Thunder and Grizz have a solid chance to beat them, long shot Mavs

A year older... Duncan is gonna be 39 in April. Who knows if he can stay healthy enough.
post #17966 of 27239
he hasn't declined as much and they're on minute restrictions again. every year i think there will be a drop off but every year he puts up solid numbers. same with dirk. somehow every year he's an all-star
post #17967 of 27239
I don't expect their offensive games to drop off(maybe their numbers will slightly- kawhi bigger role, addition of Parsons), that is IF they stay healthy

Just watched playoff game from 2002 Jazz vs Mavs, Karl Malone at 37 was still basically in his prime wow.gif
He looked way better than Duncan now, but then he got injured 3 years later and we know how that ended frown.gif

I thought Team USA looked pretty shitty at times against Brazil tonight. Sloppy turnovers, missed shots that were uncontested, and poor defensive rotations. A couple of bright spots, though. Anthony Davis just ran roughshod in the paint and made Tiago Splitter his bitch for the night. Derrick Rose provided a nice spark with his quickness and Kyrie Irving had some nice plays with his handles and his active hands.

Really surprised Duncan has not broken down by now. His playoff career alone is like 3 extra season to his career. 20 seasons.
post #17970 of 27239
Yeah who knows maybe next year he finally breaks down and he's slowly declining but going by the trend it won't be a huge drop off
