i dunno why but i don't see him being so superstarish this year...he's putting up good numbers but he just seems to have so many more ba games...is it just me or is duncan having a semi bad year?

wait for it...

Pop said he wanted to make sure Duncan was fully rested for the playoffs. I think he's got so much less responsibility with Parker playing so well, and with Finley picking up the slack, I just think Duncan hasn't had to put up the big numbers....yet

(I wish I'd thought of this when I drafted him in the first round).

Thing with the Spurs is they don't need Duncan to be dominant, at least not in the regular season. Such a complete team that one player rarely stands out in their box scores. Obviously, Duncan is the franchise guy but he has a lot of support with Parker, Ginobili, Finley, etc.

he does have alot of support maybe he only plays when they need him or something...kinda weird seeing him have 14point and 9rebounds...it just is akward

Duncan has an injury that has bothered him all year. Some sort of foot problem. He's averaging 35.5 minutes a game which is the second lowest of his career. He is only taking 15.3 shots a game which is is lowest of his career. His FG% is also at a career low. Plus, Tony Parker has emerged as an all-star and the Spurs are a deeper team this year. They have three players 6-11 or taller. Because of all that, his PPG are down. He's still rebounding and playing defense consistently.

I don't want to stray too far off topic. But is Robert Horry hurt? I never see his name in the box scores.

I also agree that Timmy doesn't have to do as much now that Parker is blowin' up this yr.

Robert Horry was hurt. Abdominal strain and hip problem. He came back for last nights important game.
