The Playoffs
SlamDuncan.com
SlamDuncan.com Hello to everyone. It's a very exciting time to be checking in. The NBA playoffs are here and everyone has been asking me about the three-pointer in game one against the Suns. That win was about teamwork. Let's get that out of the way right now. If my teammates had not put us in a position to win with big several big shots and defensive stops of their own, my shot would have been just another three-pointer.

Still, instead of responding to all the e-mails I've gotten about it, let me answer some of the things that people most seem to want to know about that shot. First, the play was not drawn up that way. I couldn't remember when the last three-pointer I shot took place prior to that one (except the one in the shootout at the All Star game), but I can assure you that we have guys on the team that can hit that with better accuracy. What happened was that Shaquille O'Neal left me to try to block Manu Ginobili's drive to the basket. I pulled back beyond the arc at that moment and somehow Manu saw me standing wide open. I don't have to tell you that he has amazing court vision. The fact that he hit me with an incredibly fast and accurate pass at that moment is incredible. He was flying to the basket, yet he swung that ball through the air, past the reach of our opponents and squarely into my hands. Still, the game was not over at that point. As I said earlier, winning in the playoffs is all about teamwork. Many of us have played together for some time and we spend all year getting ready for these types of moments in the playoffs.

And the rest...well, it's history. Just a lucky shot. Still, the game was not over at that point. As I said earlier, winning in the playoffs is all about teamwork. Many of us have played together for some time and we spend all year getting ready for these types of moments in the playoffs.

I for one hope that you can all come out and cheer us on as we continue to do battle with the best. It's an exciting time for us, but having your support gives us that extra edge.
