Duncan Set for ‘Best All-Star weekend’
For the first time in his career, Tim Duncan didn’t have to suffer an early wake-up call and hop a flight the day after the Spurs’ final game before All-Star Weekend.
Left off the Western Conference All-Star roster for the first time in his 15 seasons — there was no All-Star Game in 1999, the only other NBA season shortened by a lockout — Duncan said he is looking forward to what may be his best All-Star Weekend.
“I’m going to go home and hang out with my family and kids,” he said. “Actually, it’s going to be the best All-Star Weekend ever. At the end of the day I’m not going to have to do media six times before playing in the game for five minutes.”
