That NBA Lottery Pick:
To be honest, most of us would probably freak out if an NBA player fell into our laps during a game and last night during game three of the 2013 NBA Finals, one lucky Spurs fan got the chance to catch Tim Duncan.
Keep an eye on the blonde woman sitting in the lower level as Duncan dives into the stands to save a loose ball and her shocked look upon catching Tim:

BEST OF MAXIM
Though super polite and professional, Tim Duncan doesn’t exactly have the most colorful of personalities. Duncan’s teammate Manu Ginobili joked about this fact with a spot-on impersonation of the Spurs big man when asked how Duncan would feel about a statue being erected in his honor once his playing days are over. Check out the funny clip above. [The Basketball Jones] Article...
David Robinson was 37 years old when he retired, his legacy as the greatest player in San Antonio Spurs history firmly intact.
It's been 10 years since Robinson left the team in the hands of Tim Duncan and a couple of young guards named Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili.
Now it's Duncan's legacy that is being debated as the Spurs entered Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Thursday...
SAN ANTONIO - Miami Heat's Udonis Haslem has had to defend the likes of Roy Hibbert, and Joakim Noah during Miami's postseason run to the NBA Finals and now he finds himself guarding perhaps the greatest big man of this era in the NBA - San Antonio Spurs' Tim Duncan.
Duncan has been having a solid postseason averaging 17.4 points, 1.7 blocks, 2.2 assists, 9.6 rebounds...
In Game 4 of the NBA Finals Thursday night there was a sequence of basketball-deliciousness that needs to be seen to be believed. Stephen Douglas of The Big Lead referred to it as “basketball porn” and I really can’t argue with that assessment. Late in the third quarter, San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili drove into the lane and threw a behind-the-head pass to Tim Duncan...
Tim Duncan had six points and two rebounds to help the San Antonio Spurs take a 24-20 lead over the Miami Heat after one quarter in Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday night.
Kawhi Leonard had five points and three rebounds and the Spurs shot 61 percent from the field in the first finals game in San Antonio since 2007.
Dwyane Wade got off to another quick start for the Heat, scoring...
SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili sat in mostly stunned silence, all that playoff experience not preparing them for how they felt after two games.
They were satisfied, yet shaken.
The San Antonio Spurs had taken home-court advantage away from the Miami Heat, but then the reigning champions took them apart.
So as they prepared to bring the NBA Finals back...
The rain outside contributed to the crowd, Tim Duncan, and Tony Parker being late to the arena Tuesday night for Game 3 of the NBA Finals. That same rain appeared to inspire a couple of their teammates to make it rain inside the arena on the Heat.
Danny Green and Gary Neal combined for 13 three-pointers to lead the Spurs over the Heat in a record setting blowout win, 113-77.
It’s one thing to get blocked by an opposing player. It’s another to have a dunk rejected by the buzzer.
Chris Bosh seemed to be working past the troubles that have plagued his NBA Finals appearance — and much of his time with the Heat, for that matter — on Thursday night. Miami’s Big Three all came out firing, with LeBron James‘ 33 points (on, hello, 60 percent shooting...
SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- From big 3s to Big Three, the Spurs had it all in the NBA Finals' raucous return to San Antonio.
Danny Green made seven of the Spurs' finals-record 16 3-pointers, Tim Duncan had 12 points and 14 rebounds, and the Spurs clobbered the Miami Heat 113-77 on Tuesday night to take 2-1 lead in the series.
Green scored 27 points and Gary Neal made six 3-pointers...
The San Antonio Spurs first possession wasn't anything groundbreaking. Tony Parker received a screen from Tim Duncan at the top of the arc and Miami trapped Parker aggressively. Duncan slipped into the lane and Parker fed him the pass.
Chris Bosh, defending Tiago Splitter on the play, dropped down for a beat to help on Duncan. Udonis Haslem quickly scampered from the top...
So this is pretty awesome.
The San Antonio Spurs "Big 3" of Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili and coach Gregg Popovich have been one of the best quartets in the NBA leading the team to three NBA titles, great regular seasons, and deep playoff runs.
And after 11 seasons together, they find themselves once again in the thick of things, fighting for another...
This is the third installment of NBA Entertainment’s behind the scenes look at the NBA Finals between the Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs, and three things jumped out at me.
1. Tim Duncan’s truly woeful wardrobe.
2. Ray Allen and Chris Bosh’s pre-game speech didn’t have the same impact as Dwyane Wade’s gem from Game 2.
3. Greg Popovich’s hilariously calm and sarcastic...
Greatness is easily overlooked when it’s quiet.
We witnessed Ali because we heard him. We revered Jordan because he revered himself. And even in the hyperbaric chamber that is Bill Belichick’s Patriot headquarters, we understood dominance because the Boston media broke through the barriers and documented a dynasty.
Meanwhile, the San Antonio Spurs silently defined an era of basketball...
