Photo: Tim Duncan Didn’t Play Last Night Because He’s ‘Old’

The NBA.com boxscore for last night’s Sixers/Spurs game lists the reason for Tim Duncan’s absence from the contest as him being “old.” Perfect.

    Coach Pop’s has always had a really good sense of humor. Remember when they instantly fouled at the start of one game when shaq was with the suns? poking fun at the hack-a-shaq?!?! then giving Shaq 2 thumbs up and laughing.
