Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said Thursday that Duncan returned this summer in even better shape than a year ago, when the perennial All-Star reported to training camp 15 pounds lighter. (source victoriaadvocate.com)
This is fantastic news for Spurs fans. Duncan is getting older and entering the twilight of his NBA career.
Last season, the sight of him wearing the knee braces probably made Spurs fans cringe. However with this slimmer-than-ever version of Duncan will only do wonders for his aching knees and help keep him healthy all season long.
