The opportunities to appreciate Tim Duncan are getting fewer and fewer by the day, even as he continues to show he has more in reserve than
most ever thought possible at the age of 37.
For that reason and more, San Antonio Spurs fans should be rooting for the Miami Heat to survive the Indiana Pacers. This has been a magical season for the San Antonio Spurs, and with tomorrow not guaranteed for a team whose core sits on the wrong side of 30, if this is to be a curtain call of sorts for Duncan, Manu Ginobili, and Tony Parker, it deserves the largest audience possible.
As nice as it might be to see old friends (George Hill), the Pacers will not draw the nation-wide interest the Spurs already struggle to produce.
The Spurs need the Heat, or specifically, the Spurs need the Heat’s LeBron James and the national audience that the he brings to the table.
