Parker, Duncan work out with Spurs rookies

While the fate of the season hangs in the balance at negotiating sessions in New York, Tim Duncan and Tony Parker are taking their elder status with the San Antonio Spurs rather seriously. (via Tim Griffin, Express-News)

Parker and Duncan worked out with Spurs rookies Kawhi Leonard and Cory Joseph.

Duncan and Parker aren’t wearing their suits arguing with David Stern, Adam Silver, Peter Holt and the other representatives of the NBA owners.

Instead, they were working out Tuesday with Spurs rookies Kawhi Leonard and Cory Joseph in San Antonio.

Parker had a couple of pictures of the workout here and here on his website. The work can’t do anything but help their acclamation into the NBA.

While other NBA teams have conducted organized workouts, the Spurs haven’t taken that step. The main reason is because the team is scattered around the world and many of them have been taking part in international hoop pursuits over the past few weeks.

But Duncan and Parker showing Leonard and the Joseph the ropes was a strong sign of leadership. It should only help them once the lockout ends.

  1. It’s time to grow up and man up. There is little time left for our “BIG THREE” so this rookies may have to become men really fast. Put them on some gogo juice and use a lot of it. I can tell they can handle it, they just look more aware of things and may be ready faster than expected they might just challenge some vet’s for minutes during the season, whenever it starts, this bunch of bananas are going to turn ripe real fast. The change of the Guard in San Antonio is just beggining with this new youth movement and one of this days they will be task to protect the AT & T Arena. Imagine David, Tim, Manu and even Tony sitting in the stand behind the Spurs bench going WOW watching this new generation keeping the tradition going.
