Tim Duncan Doesn’t Care If He Makes All-Star Team
At 36 years old, Tim Duncan is in the middle of yet another very good season for the San Antonio Spurs. While everyone is waiting for him to slow down, Duncan is quietly averaging nearly 18 points, 10 rebounds, and over 2 blocks per game.
By most standards, he is having an All-Star type season. But according to himself, he doesn’t really care whether or not he gets named to the All-Star game. Via My San Antonio:
Duncan intends to put a halt to any and all future stops on Popovich’s Tim-for-All-Star tour.
“I will not be campaigning,” he said. “I haven’t heard what Pop’s been saying, but I guess I’ve got to talk to him.
“I wouldn’t complain if I’m not on the (All-Star) roster. I want to play well and want to feel good about what I’m doing on the court, but I am not going to be unhappy if I don’t make it.”
At this point in his career, it’s easy to understand why Duncan doesn’t really care whether he gets voted an All-Star or not. He’ll be going down as one of the all-time greats regardless of how many extra All-Star appearances he adds on.
His focus now is on winning more championships, and the Spurs looked armed and ready to go.
