Of course Duncan is capable of running up MVP numbers some nights but should that even be considered during the regular season?
Frankly I am so irritated by this long minutes played by TD. My heart keeps pounding on me when I see TD playing more than 32 mintues. Last thing we need is TD get hurt God Forbid!!!!!
No questions TD is capable of running up for another MVP, but we def need to keep him fresh for the PO.
Regardless if that Sun of a Gun Darn Schedule required more minutes or less. It just is wrong to play TD more than lower 30's minutes in any regular season game especially the B2B ones!!!:shocked
“I asked them if it wasn't too much trouble, if I wasn't being too pushy, if they could execute what we were trying to do. And if it didn't make them too angry, if they also wanted to play some defense on the other end, that would be great.”
