SlamDuncan.com As you might imagine, it's been a very busy summer, so it's been quite a while since I've had a chance to check in, but I'm very excited about the new season and hope all of you Spurs fans are, too.

My new teammates all seem to be fitting well into our system on both the offensive and defensive ends. It is also great to have a solid core of guys back from last year. If we can stay healthy, I feel like this team could be even stronger than last year. I can also tell you that it may be a little different brand of Spurs basketball than last year with a quicker pace, more passing, and sharper shooting. I'm truly excited.

For me, personally, this summer was really packed with activity. I got to participate in the Olympics, which was always a goal of mine when I was growing up. Of course, back then I thought I would be doing it as a competitive swimmer!

I am really happy for Manu winning the Gold. He and his team played very well, and he hasn't let me forget it, either. Although some may think winning the Bronze was a disappointment, I was very proud of the way our USA team came together, and what all we accomplished with the pieces we had. Being part of the Olympics was a dream come true for me.

During the off-season, I also got to go home to the Virgin Islands. It was great to spend time with family and old friends there. I always try to participate each summer in a basketball-filled weekend that a good friend from St. Croix puts on each year and my Foundation helps sponsor. It is a great way to stay involved with my community there, and I always enjoy being home! We also do a free basketball clinic for the local kids in St. Croix. I enjoy seeing kids come out with that thirst for knowledge that I had when I was just starting to learn how to play. It is fun for me to share my experiences with them.

Other than that, my summer was so committed with USA Basketball that what little remaining free time I had, I just spent at home with my wife and our dogs relaxing and just enjoying some down time. I truly savored and enjoyed those free moments.

Now it is October, and it's back to business already. Amazing how quickly time passes.

Drop me an email with your questions or feedback to td21@slamduncan.com. I'll see you at the game!
