Tim Duncan was back in San Antonio Monday morning, working out with his former teammates at the Spurs’ shootaround.
Being the machine that he is, Duncan remains in great shape at the age of 40. In such great shape, in fact, that Spurs shooting guard Danny Green wondered aloud if the team could sign him for the playoffs.
“He’s trying to stay in shape,” Green said, via MySanAntonio.com. “He’s still looking like we could sign him. He could come back for Game 6 in the Finals or something like that and collect a ring, if we make it. If we are up in Game 6, three (games) to two, sign him to a [Tony] Romo deal.”
The joke is in reference to the former Dallas Cowboys quarterback signing a one-day deal with the Dallas Mavericks and sitting on the bench, in uniform, during the last game of the season. The Spurs can’t sign Duncan to such a deal for the postseason, but would it truly surprise anyone to see Duncan show up in uniform and put up a double-double?
He did it for 19 years, why not one more night?
