“I think they’re both going to play one more year,” Parker told the Express-News on Wednesday. Duncan, 39, and Ginobili, 37, are among the 10 Spurs who will see their contracts expire on July 1. Neither has formally announced a decision to return or retire. Parker admits his opinion about keeping the trio intact next season is a bit of wishful thinking. “I’m trying to be positive,” he said with a chuckle after an appearance at his annual basketball camp at George Gervin Academy.

“Teams are switching more,” says Danny Ainge, the Celtics GM. “And that means the post-up is still relevant.” Brutalize the switch, and a team may ditch the idea — unshackling the pick-and-roll again. Posting up against mismatches isn’t just for big guys, either. The Rockets know Terry can’t stick with Curry, but they can’t slide him over to Thompson or Harrison Barnes, either. Those guys aren’t high-volume post-up killers, but they’ve shown they’re just polished enough to do back-to-the-basket damage against shrimps. You don’t have to be great. You just have to be competent. That competence has been a crucial ingredient for Golden State in this series against Terry, and in past playoff series against Tony Parker and Ty Lawson.
