Tim Duncan’s outlet passes just wanna love you
When the Spurs transitioned from being a defense-first, grind it out team to a more up tempo one that scored at a higher rate, Tony Parker and Gregg Popovich got most of the credit for that shift. It’s true that San Antonio’s transformation couldn’t happen without the talents of Parker, but also correct that Tim Duncan played a key role as well.
One of the things Coach Pop asked to happen was for Duncan to get the ball up the floor farther when going from defense to offense. Duncan’s outlet passing became very important in making the Spurs into a better offensive team. Unfortunately, outlet passes are like the vegetables of basketball. Supremely important but nothing special. It takes a lot to make outlet passes exciting.
Tim Duncan just happens to be one of the best in the game at making outlet passes, so we here at 48MoH thought we needed to do something to add some sexiness back to the outlet pass and put together this little mix tape.
