The trade deadline ends on Thursday. There will be analysis and scores, but as history teaches us we need a few years to find out what actually could’ve been.
One of the greatest what-ifs involves the greatest power forward of all time. Bruce Bowen shared how close was Tim Duncan to signing with Orlando Magic. “When Tim went out to meet with Orlando, he asked this question,” Bowen said. “Can family come on the flights to some games? And from what I understand, [Doc Rivers] said no, and that’s where he lost Tim Duncan.”
Not even for all the games….wow Doc.
The Spurs do a lot of things right and are truly a dynasty but this shows that sometimes you truly need to be lucky. If Doc Rivers ever gets a statue it will probably be in San Antonio.
