The San Antonio Spurs may have lost a rare home game to the Denver Nuggets last night but Tim Duncan sure did give the crowd in the AT&T Center something to cheer about.

Duncan (who was battling flu-like symptoms) may have seen his best days in the NBA but he sure sent a message to those who think he lost a step or two.
