I’m a little late getting in on this video, as it’s been floating around since yesterday, thanks to The Big Lead posting it over at FanHouse. But check out the shot of Tim Duncan leaving the bench early in Game 4 against Phoenix.
Rules are rules, and while the situation wasn’t as grave as the Phoenix players scurrying to defend Nash, Duncan clearly stepped on the court to try and defend his fallen soldier. I dunno, hairy stuff, and I’m not so sure I give Tim the benefit of the doubt. And kudos to the Suns’ coaching and video staff for catching that. Man, those guys are right on point. So you make the call, should Duncan be suspended?
