Manu Ginobili, who has seen Duncan in a heap on the court many times since joining the Spurs for the 2002-03 season, was almost as nervous as Mills. “We all got a little worried,” he said. “We looked at each other, like, 'Ouch!' especially when he grabbed his knee and went to the locker room. “Luckily, five minutes later he was back with us and asked to be back in. We all felt a relief.” Duncan was plenty worried himself when the knee bent at what he called a weird angle. “Very scary,” he said. “The pain wasn't that bad, but it felt kind of weird. Just wanted to make sure everything was fine.” San Antonio Express-News

Tony Parker: When (Duncan and Ginobili) retire, it will be weird. It will create a big hole in the locker room. I hope it will be as late as possible. I know they both have another year of contract. I know they will play next year, and we'll see after that. They are healthy. Popovich takes care of players' bodies and maybe they will want to continue after that. In any case, I hope to play as long as possible with them. Basket-Infos

Tim Duncan of the Spurs is already a legend of the NBA. Tim Duncan ended 16 of his 17 seasons played in the NBA with at least 50 victories in regular season. The only season so far with less than 50 wins was due to the '98 NBA lockout (Spurs went 37-13). Sportando

But inexplicable noises in the same hotel that spooked Jeff Ayres and Tim Duncan on their recent stay in California just might be among them. Udoka said had no idea about their experience, or the history of the allegedly-haunted Claremont Resort, until reading about it several days later. “I never would have thought anything of it until I read that article,” he said. “Same thing. Same sounds. Kids in the hallway. I didn’t know any of the details of it until I read (about Ayres and Duncan). I remember hearing (voices) and looking out the peep hole and nobody’s out there. So it kind of creeped me out when I thought about it afterwards. I didn’t know any of the stories, nothing. I just remember hearing it. “It wasn’t exactly above me, stomping like the typical sound you here with somebody (in the room) above you. It was kind of in the walls. It was weird. Little clicks and sounds all day, the middle of the day. But the baby in the hallway, or a child. That’s what I remember specifically. I’m not superstitious. I haven’t really had any experience like that. For me, to even acknowledge that is (weak). “I’m not the type of guy to say any BS. But I remember it. It’s creepy now. I don’t want to stay there any more with all these stories.” San Antonio Express-News

Duncan: “I heard a baby in his room. There was somebody or something in his room, yeah. I definitely heard something. It wasn’t creepy, because I assumed it was really somebody in the room, and they gave him the wrong room. But when they told me the story the next day about calling up there and no one in the room, it’s at that point you get chills. I totally agreed with him. There was a baby there, absolutely. I heard about the history of the place, and I’d rather not (stay there again).” San Antonio Express-News

They don't, but we should. As Duncan quietly, unassumingly strides toward the end of a brilliant, immortal career with one year left on his contract, we should take a moment to reflect on the rarity and basketball beauty of what the Spurs have given us. There is speculation that this could be the last run for Duncan, who will turn 38 by the time the Spurs vanquish their first-round opponent. Ginobili, 36, also has one year left on his contract. Parker, the baby at 31, has a year left with only $3.5 million guaranteed. CBSSports.com
