That’s messed up. Doesn’t a four-time NBA champions and three-time Finals MVP get any respect around here? As you can see from the box score above that Hardwood Paroxysm shared with us, Tim Duncan did not dress for the Spurs game against the Sixers on Sunday. With an aging roster that is looking to make another Finals run, Gregg Popovich has to be careful about keeping his stars fresh for the playoffs. If that means giving someone like Duncan a night off, Pop has no problem doing that. Since Duncan does not have an actual injury, the folks over at NBA.com decided to list him as a “DND – Old” for a while after the game had ended. The box score has since been changed to just “DND” next to Duncan’s name.

Why was Duncan wearing a suit on the sidelines and not a uniform on Sunday? Because he’s old. No need to blow his cover.
