    Beautiful picture. I just found a new desktop image. Those three are great players, and really good people as well. Spurs getting crazy love in the photos. I love it!

    parker and duncan are good people. ginobli, eh, not so much(flopper), but all 3 are good players..

    ciolkstar: Come to think of it, we should have spread those spurs images out a bit… It might be some time before they appear again in this section.

    Lmao at people thinking they know Manu and that he isn’t a good person. I still remember how glad I was to see this issue on the stands. Still one of my favorites.

    adidas made and keeps making ugly big men shoes hehe otherwise great pick. Seems like they’re real friens of the court as well you can see it in games in their communication. check the lakers for a wanabee version of this. I’m not convinced everybody like lebron on the cavs hehe.

    Rock Solid?…not anymore!!! Those days are long gone my friends

  • Tommy Vercetti

    Easily one of the great dynasties in sports.

  • whooo!

    rayray clearly misses the point. rock-solid doesn’t mean 1 year, or 2 years, it’s about how these guys have been atop this league for so long, without one bad year. they’ve made the playoffs every year since duncan arrived, and i think never lost more than 25 games or something absurd. that’s consistency. a decade after duncan won his first ring, and 4 years after this pic (i believe it’s from ’05), they’re still #2 in the west… they just keep pounding at the rock.

  • big bad boss

    rayray you dumbdumb, come playoff time duncan will kill evryone. and besides, who among active players have more achievements than duncan?
