“There’s a lot of things that I like and enjoy about it, and there’s a lot of things that I hate about it,” Duncan said. “I hate the way the game’s being officiated at times, how they’ve underpowered the effect of a post player so that you’re allowed to beat the crap out of a post player. You’re allowed to take him off his spot. You’re allowed to hit him, bump him while they’re shooting. But if you turn and face and go out to the 3-point line, and you shoot the ball and fall down, all of a sudden, the whistle is blown. “So they’re protecting the shooters away from the basket. It overpowers some of the players that are away from the basket, and it underpowers post players who use their bodies and their physicality around the basket.”
Storyline: Officiating Complaints
Tim Duncan opened up about trash talking in the NBA and why he never was a fan of it. Duncan, a five-time NBA champion with the San Antonio Spurs, said trash talking ‘just wasn’t part’ of his game’. “It just wasn’t part of my game. It frustrates people more when you keep coming and coming and keep getting things done and no matter what they throw at you or what they do it doesn’t affect you and it actually ends up affecting them much more than it does you so that was my way, it fit with my game,” Duncan told The Ringer.
Portland Trail Blazers: “To surpass Tim Duncan who, we all know how great of a player he was and what he did for the game… you know, I’m still goin’!” @brookeolzendam gets an update on making history and the CarMerlots from @carmeloanthony in tonight’s @Biofreeze Top Performance Review.

Hammon also touched on the willingness to learn from great players. As a coach with the San Antonio Spurs, she learned from legends like Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker and Greg Popovich. She said that it was not easy walking into a room with those players. “The work is where you get your confidence, it becomes second nature to you it’s about habits,” she said. “Coming in there, being willing to listen, it doesn’t matter if you’re an assistant coach, head coach, best player on the team you always have to be willing to learn and be open minded to growth, critique and you take it all in and you move on. You use what you can use, and then you got to spit out the bones.”
