Other People: Mahoney on the Spurs
Now, the Spurs are not dead. But the three-star system that relied on Parker, Ginobili, and Duncan to bring out the brilliance in one another as equally important parts? Like a doornail. Itâ€™s rotting, maggoty (I donâ€™t think I mean Maggette), and frankly starting to smell a bit ripe. The fact that Ginobili has absolutely taken over since Parkerâ€™s injury isnâ€™t a mistake or a mirage. With Duncan and Parkerâ€™s respective declines, the first due to age and the latter to injury, Manu is simply being given the proper outlet to do what heâ€™s always been capable of doing, even if the system never properly called for it.
Swing by and give it a read.
