Spurs being represented at All-Star Game


Hoop Nut.comPoint guard Tony Parker and power forward Tim Duncan will be representing the San Antonio Spurs in the 2013 All-Star game.

Both are having great seasons, with Duncan being the most impressive at 36 years old.

Parker is leading the Spurs in scoring with 19.8ppg and 7.4apg while Duncan is notching up 17.5ppg and 9.8rpg. The most impressive stat that's been noticed by Duncan has to be his 2.8 blocks per game, the second best average in this department in his career. Both men have helped the Spurs to a 34-111 record and leading the Southwest division.

A selection for either player was thought to possibly be a long shot with all the deserving players, especially with the NBA going to a more generic type of ballot of the traditional guard-forward-center ballot that they've had for years. 

This year it's been dubbed "The Duncan Rule" where the fans and coaches choose guards and "bigs", a controversy with Duncan being considered a center to some for years. While fans from other teams may be disappointed their players didn't make it, these two deserve recognition for their contributions to the Spurs.

What do you Spurs fans think about Parker and Duncan going to the All-Star Game? Is it an honor or is it best for them to have stayed home and rested for the stretch run for a title?
