Bowen Fears Injuries in Grueling Schedule
Some details have been released, including the fact each team will play at least one set of three straight games.
Some may play as many as three sets of three in a row. There will be many more sets of back-to-backs.
(Former Spurs Coach Mike) Brungardt is convinced most Spurs will be in good condition when camp opens. So is former Spur Bruce Bowen, who warns that players who neglected conditioning during the lockout will pay when camps open.
“Once they start playing, there’s going to be a lot of injuries,” said Bowen, 40, now an NBA analyst for ESPN. “I saw it last time. Some guys, especially young guys, just don’t stay in shape. They don’t know what’s about to hit them.”
