Timmy (Duncan), as (Gregg) Popovich calls him, actually has an improvement in his offensive numbers from a season ago. Ask about his resurgence, Pop said, “It shows his consistency over time and how he’s accepted the responsibility to be the leader, year after year, night after night. It’s a grind on people. They can do it for a while but not for 16 years. He and Kevin Garnett, those kind of guys are pretty rare. They take care of themselves. They do what they need to do in the summertime. They watch what they put in their bodies. They’re just special people.”
