Beyond The Buzzer:
Duncan, Gregg Popovich told media representatives from Boston to Orlando, should not have been excluded last season and is playing even better this season.
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.”

NO AWARD TOUR
All-Star Game appearances are not what motivates Tim Duncan. The Spurs veteran says he doesn't care if he makes the team.
Tim Duncan didn't make the All-Star team for the first time in his career last season and he wasn't too disappointed either.
Instead of being disappointed at the fans and coaches not having him on the West roster, he got to spend All-Star weekend with his family. Duncan told Mike Monroe from MySA.com that he:
“I enjoyed it tremendously....I will not be campaigning...
OLD MAN HOPS
To be honest, it's been awhile since we've posted a Tim Duncan dunk on this fair website but you need to check out this dunk he had during Thursday night's game against the Portland Trail Blazers. Watch as the big fundamental throws it down on Trail Blazer forward Nicolas Batum:
The matchup of the game between the San Antonio Spurs and Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City will be between forward Tim Duncan and center Al Jefferson.
These two players play different positions but, as Spurs fans know, Duncan plays both big man roles depending on who is on the floor with him and opposing teams usually mix and match their big men against him.
This matchup is going...
Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard went hard last night and dropped 29 points in their 98-90 victory over the Spurs. Old man Tim Duncan had the highlight of the night though. Early in the game Tony Parker found Duncan on a classic pick and roll and Duncan finished with a huge dunk over Nicolas Batum. Check out the jam below.

A while back, TNT analyst Charles Barkley asked one too many questions of San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich regarding the game versus the Heat and in true Pop fashion, gave Chuck the "business."
Well it seems ESPN's Chris Mullin learned from Barkley's mistake when he interviewed Pop during last night's Spurs-Jazz game.
Check out the two having...
The San Antonio Spurs have always been thought of as that grind-it-out team. That team that methodically breaks down defenses with its passing and low post play. Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili have long been able to slither their way through defenses and Duncan was just a point guard in a post's body with the way he could break down defenses with his post moves and the pass. ...
The San Antonio Spurs have had a change of identity of sorts this season. They've had more controversies this season than any others put together during the Tim Duncan era.
They sent their main stars home for a nationally televised game and got fined, there was a photo that leaked with Tim Duncan and Tony Parker with a fake Joey Crawford, and most recently Stephen Jackson...
San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich was finally offered the opportunity to coach a national team recently. Unfortunately, though, it wasn't the United States National Team that came calling

Every morning, we will give you five things from the night before in the NBA to start your day.
1: Only One D in Texas
The Spurs have not been a defensive-minded team for a few years now. Gregg Popovich has successfully turned his team from a defensive, half-court team to one that gets up the floor and can score in a variety of ways -- using the 3-pointer as much as the hedged...
San Antonio Spurs fans weren't happy with how the game ended against the Utah Jazz on Wednesday night and neither was the coach apparently.
Gregg Popovich is usually a guy who'll give props to the opposing player for making a game winning shot or buzzer beater, but this time it was different. Pop was disappointed in his shooting guard Danny Green for not sticking to the...
