If Sports teaches us anything it is that the impossible is only until it isn’t. In the unlikely scenario that Kevin Garnett, enemy of Tim Duncan, spends his final years in San Antonio it would represent a significant change of course, surprise some people, and make me exceedingly giddy.
It would take some financial finagling. Hey, LeBron, Bosh, and Wade took pay cuts to get together. Duncan and Garnett have made all the money already. Both are über-competitors. If you told them that all it would take to win another, possibly last-chance title is a pay cut and some hatchet-burying?
The TD window is still open but only just. Tony Parker may just only be Regular Season good. He and Ginobili spark the new fast-break first offense. None of that has to change much. KG is a still-rangy big man that can pass and play the post better than Tiago Splitter.
And really, are we going to compromise a chance at a title for the development of Tiago Splitter?
Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett, Manu Ginobili, Stephen Jackson – that there is a list of ballers that don’t quit, don’t get scared, and still can play. We don’t have young guns like OKC and Miami. I can live with a roster of bad asses.
