Pop explains process for resting guys, says he started sitting Duncan in '99. I explain how LAL failed to manage Kobe espn.go.com/blog/los-angel…

Julian Mozo

#NBA "Jugue con tipos como Jordan, Duncan y Robinson, pero nunca vi algo igual", dijo Steve Kerr, DT de Thompson, tras vivir el récord.

John Ireland

He'll get in because it might be his last. Kerr has too much respect for him. RT @narekito: Duncan is not an all star this season

John Ireland

Westbrook, Duncan in. Two spots left for Dirk, Boogie, Conley, Monte. Can't see no Mavs--so I'll go Dirk, Boogie. So tough to pick (2/2)

Gary Lee

Some valuable minutes for Sacre, who is guarding Duncan. Hopefully he can develop into an NBA center by the end of the season.

Jeff McDonald

Tim Duncan's got a little blood on his right leg. Will Sevening patching him up so we can continue play.

Gary Lee

Robert Sacre pushed Tim Duncan in the back for an offensive rebound. Clearly learned from the best, his father.

Paul Garcia

Kawhi + Duncan + Parker + Manu + Baynes outscored the Lakers 44-38 in the 1st half. SA leads 56-38 at half.

Mike Trudell

Clarkson was a bright spot for LAL with 8, 2 and 2, while the Spurs took a 56-38 lead into halftime. Parker/Duncan had 10 points apiece.

Jeff McDonald

Parker's got 10, Duncan's got 10 and Spurs lead 45-24 with two foul shots coming for Danny Green.

Gary Lee

I don't understand why the Lakers continue to think the Sacre-Duncan matchup is a favorable one for them. Long story short, it's not.

Gary Lee

Lakers have gone to Sacre at least three times with Tim Duncan guarding him. Supreme confidence, I see.

Jeff McDonald

Last starter introduced for Lakers: Jordan Clarkson. First starter introduced for Spurs (as always): Tim Duncan.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs: Parker, Green, Leonard, Duncan, Bonner. Lakers: Clarkson, Ellington, Kelly, Hill, Sacre.

Ryan Ward

Not sure how Gregg Popovich plans to start, but some of these matchups could be rough: Parker/Clarkson, Leonard/Kelly and Sacre/Duncan

Mike Trudell

Asked Popovich if Duncan were still the most important Spur despite emergence of other players over the years. Answer, in short, is yes.

Jeff Caplan

Tim Duncan has played 1,192 min already this season, on pace for his most in a reg season since he was 33. He's 38. foxsports.com/southwest/stor…

Alex Kennedy

Anthony Davis had at least 20 points and 3 blocks in his last 5 games - the longest streak by any NBA player since Tim Duncan in Dec. 2003.

Dan McCarney

That behind-the-back beauty from Manu was his only assist of the game. Leonard scoreless in 2nd half. Duncan dominated by Gasol.

Steve Aschburner

Not the stuff of posters, since non-dunk. But that reverse layup by Rose vs. Duncan was special.

Diamond Leung

Steve Kerr told KNBR he's been calling Stephen Curry "The Short Tim Duncan." "He's just incredibly talented and yet modest."

Dwain Price

The 7 All-Star reserves I believe the West coaches will select: Aldridge, Duncan, Ellis, Harden, Howard, Lillard and Thompson.

Dan McCarney

Oh yes -- as @Jeff Caplan points out, Aldridge injury boosts All-Star chances for Duncan.

Jeff Caplan

With Aldridge out and Kobe likely out, that opens 2 spots on the West All-Star team. Could guarantee Duncan & Boogie? Or Klay & Boogie or...

Mike McGraw

Snell scores over Duncan, just the way Gar imagined it happening. #Bulls

Jovan Buha

Doc on CP3 being underrated nationally: "It's a little like [Tim] Duncan. He just keeps doing it every night, and people don't notice it."

Dan McCarney

Duncan misses out on starting nod as All-Star voting concludes blog.mysanantonio.com/spursnation/20…

Paul Garcia

Duncan 4th, Kawhi 11th. RT @NBAAllStar: The final #NBAAllStarNYC Balloting presented by @Sprint Results. http://t.co/g5lbWfVXnQ

Kevin Ding

In Chicago for Spurs-Bulls. Tim Duncan just ran by in the hallway. In light of Kobe news, let's cherish these old folks as long as we can.

Sean Highkin

Bulls starters: Rose, Butler, Snell, Gibson, Gasol. Spurs: Parker, Green, Leonard, Duncan, Splitter.

Sean Cunningham

Kings C DeMarcus Cousins finished 7th in frontcourt voting with 465,334 total votes, behind Davis, Gasol, Griffin, Duncan, Durant, Aldridge

Dan McCarney

...but Duncan should have a solid chance to go.

Dan McCarney

Duncan misses out on starting nod for All-Star Game, finishes fourth behind Anthony Davis, Marc Gasol and Blake Griffin.

Steve Popper

Harden deserves it, but it's an All-Star game and not only is Kobe worthy of a last show, but so is Tim Duncan.

Jimmy Spencer

If the Spurs got LaMarcus Aldridge, that pretty much keeps the dynasty going another decade after Duncan retires.

Quixem Ramirez

Sad to see Kobe's career come to this -- two significant injuries. Makes you appreciate Tim Duncan's greatness in his 17th season.

Dan McCarney

Another factor with Aldridge: Why would you want to fill Duncan's unfillable shoes when you can cement your legacy in Portland?

Marc Stein

IF starters hold and IF reserves play out that way, DEEP fight for one spot: Klay, Duncan, Boogie, Dwight, Dirk, Monta, Conley, Z-Bo, etc.

Quixem Ramirez

Ah, I see @Zach Lowe opened up the Aldridge to the Spurs floodgates. He'd be the perfect post-Duncan big. Too bad the odds are slim.

Dan McCarney

Still think Duncan has been a tad bit more "valuable" or however you want to term it given that he's been completely healthy.

Marc Stein

If we can come to a consensus on those 10 in the West -- yeah, right -- that leaves two spots open for LaMarcus, Klay, Boogie, Duncan, etc.

Paul Garcia

Tim Duncan couldn't be stopped in the second half: 6-of-7 shooting for all of his 16 points in the last two quarters: projectspurs.com/2015-articles/…

Paul Garcia

Duncan was 6/7 shooting in the 2nd half for all of his 16 points. Parker with 10 of his 18 points in 2nd half, Baynes 10 of his 15.

Dan McCarney

Final: Spurs 109, Denver 99. Leonard - 17/15, 2 steals; Duncan - 16 pts, all in 2nd half; Parker - 18/7; Ginobili - 11/8.

Paul Garcia

Tim Duncan now with 16 points ALL IN THE SECOND HALF.

Dan McCarney

That was good to great if there ever was. Duncan passes up contested layup, finds Green in the corner, fires to Leonard on the wing for 3.

Paul Garcia

Duncan's now got 11 points. He was scoreless in the first half. He's played just 19 minutes so far.

Dan McCarney

Another great pass from Ginobili spoon feeds Duncan on the interior. Spurs by six.

Paul Garcia

Tim Duncan has scored 7 of the Spurs' 15 third quarter points so far. 5:38 left until the 4th.

Mike Monroe

1st points of game for Tim Duncan with 10:24 left in 3rd quarter
