Tim Duncan Agrees To Three Year Deal With San Antonio Spurs

Tim Duncan said he wanted to be a member of the San Antonio Spurs for life and I think he has accomplished it.  The future Hall of Famer has agreed to a three year deal with the team that should keep him with them until his retirement.

It always seems like teams are going to figure Tim Duncan out but then he changes up how he plays.  He was not the dominant Duncan that we are used to seeing but he has gotten much more cerebral.  I honestly thought the Spurs had a great chance of winning the title last season.  They just developed old legs at the absolute wrong time.

The championship window for the team is not over yet and Duncan will be a big part in getting the team back to the Finals.  They have a lot of talent but the window is slowly shutting.  If the Spurs do not win a title in the next two years, it is time to start the rebuilding movement around Tony Parker.  He is still surprisingly young but the rest of the roster would need some retooling.

Tim Duncan is by far the best power forward to ever play the game and he is going to be a first ballot Hall of Famer.   When he was at his peak, he was a dominant force.  He won four titles in four different eras.  He adapted to every single style of play and it is great to see him end his career on the only team he has ever known.

Archie Goodwin Hits Epic Game-Winning Three

The Phoenix Suns are legit playing without five or six important members of their rotation currently, so guys who don't normally make the highlight reels are getting an incredible amount of playing time. This is the case for Archie Goodwin, who started at point guard in Brandon Knight's absence and hit this improbable three with time running out to cement a 98-95 win. Things haven't been go swimmingly in Phoenix this season, so it was awesome to see Suns fans and players alike enjoy this hard-fought win.
