SAN ANTONIO -- David Robinson was 37 years old when he rode off into the NBA sunset with a fresh Lawrence OBrien trophy under his arm and his legacy as the greatest player in San Antonio Spurs history firmly intact. Cheap Nike Shoes From China Free Shipping . Its been 10 years since Robinson left his team in the hands of Tim Duncan and a couple of precocious and unpredictable young guards named Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili. Now its Duncans legacy that is being debated as the Spurs battle the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals. "I was fortunate to end my last game on a win. Id love to see that for Tim," Robinson said. "I dont know if this will be his last year. If they win it this time, theres nothing to say they cant win it again next year." Duncan turned 37 in April, but thats where the similarities end. Everyone knew "The Admiral" was on his last legs back in 2003. Robinson, who scored 71 points in a game in 1994 to lock up the scoring title with 29.8 points per game, averaged just 8.5 points and 26.2 minutes in his final season. But he was able to deliver one last forceful performance -- 13 points, 17 rebounds, 6-for-8 shooting -- to close out the Nets in Game 6. Duncan is still motoring right along. He averaged 17.9 points and 9.9 rebounds this season to earn first-team All-NBA honours for the 10th time. "Hes aging gracefully," Robinson said. "Hes playing amazing basketball. Hes phenomenal." The two became friends when Duncan was drafted No. 1 overall in 1997. Duncan would tease Robinson about getting old, and now its the 47-year-old Robinson who sees his younger friend dealing with those same issues. "Ive not been so small as to come back at him," Robinson said with a chuckle. "When he came in, every once in a while Id have to warm up a little longer than him and hed tell me how much of an old man I was. Id have to go ice my knees down and jump in the hot tub. Hes experiencing some of those growing pains." When Duncan worked out for the Spurs before being taken No. 1 overall, Robinson famously told then-owner Red McCombs: "Hes already better than me." So began the plans for succession, which arent always met with open arms by aging stars. But Robinson had yet to win a title during his brilliant career, and Duncan helped deliver the first one in 1999 against the New York Knicks. That made it a lot easier for Robinson to swallow his pride and let the Spurs become Duncans team. "Its not tough when you want to win," Robinson said. "You realize what your limitations are. When Tim came in and we started working out together, it was clear to me this guy could score and he was going to be a great player. So it would have been stupid for me to say, No, I want to keep leading the team in scoring. "Who cares? As long as we win, thats all that matters." Duncan had 20 points and 14 rebounds in San Antonios Game 1 win in Miami, but the younger Spurs like Danny Green, Gary Neal and Kawhi Leonard played bigger roles in blowing out the Heat in Game 3 to put championship No. 5 within reach. "He sees his limitations starting to come up and says, Hey, Tony can carry this team just as well," Robinson said. "We give him good support, were still going to win and we all get the credit. So I think we just have smart players. Theres only one agenda on this team, and its been that way for 20 years." Duncan learned from Robinson about sacrificing personal numbers for the greater good, which is why the leadership transition from him to point guard Tony Parker has been so seamless. Its also one of the main reasons he was able to get back to the finals 14 years after his first appearance. "I dont know that there was a point where we actually said, Im stepping aside and this is your team or whatever else," Duncan said of taking over for Robinson. "There was kind of an evolution of my game and his game. It is happening the same way now with Tony and Manu. I dont think Ive stepped aside or anything else. Our roles have just changed. And were all comfortable with that, as long as were working toward the same goal." Robinson was the one who started that all, and there still remains a special place in San Antonios heart for the 10-time All-Star and member of the original Dream Team. But time can dim anyones star, even one as bright as the Admirals. When he walked into Wheatley Middle School on Wednesday for an NBA Cares event to dedicate a new learning and play centre, Robinson took a seat and waited for his introduction. Emcee Ahmad Rashad listed his many accomplishments -- the Hall of Famer and the face of the franchise for 14 seasons -- and Robinson received a warm ovation from the children who sat cross-legged a few feet in front of him. Then came Danny Green, the no-name role player in his fourth year who was cut twice but had just exploded for 27 points the previous night. The place went bananas, a thunderous ovation for the man of the hour. "Most of these kids dont even know who I am," Robinson said with a hearty chuckle and a wide smile after reading a book to them. "Its great. Its been a lot of fun. Even to be just a small part of it right now is pretty cool for me." Theres no bitterness in his voice. No yearning for one more night in the spotlight, one more roar from the crowd. Its been 10 years since Robinson retired after winning his second championship with the Spurs. A full decade since he last laced up the shoes professionally and went to battle in the paint with 20,000 fans screaming his name and 14 teammates looking to him to make the big play in the big moment. "I miss the locker room," Robinson said. "Thats where you make such good friends, and the competing from day to day is a lot of fun. But I like raising my kids. Ive had my fun. That was great. And I enjoy now being a part of it the way I am." Somehow, some way, the same three kids -- Duncan, Parker, Ginobili -- Robinson left to carry the torch are still together. Still winning. Still Spurs. Theyve won two titles without Robinson, who showed them all how to be pros. "Theyre about the last ones I recognize on this team," he said. "Its great. You see the new generations coming now. Obviously Danny Green and Kawhi Leonard playing phenomenal basketball. Gary Neals doing a great job. Tonys still a young guy. Theyve got all the pieces to keep it moving." Nike Shoes From China . Calgary scored on the first shift, and Michael Cammalleri scored twice as the Flames cruised to a 5-2 win over the Washington Capitals on Saturday. Nike Shoes Wholesale Free Shipping .com) - The Montreal Canadiens will try to halt their longest losing streak of the season when they host the struggling New York Islanders in tonights clash at the Bell Centre. . Robredo, ranked No. 16, bounced back from an upset loss to Leonardo Mayer in the second round of the Royal Guard Open in Chile last week to down Carreno Busta in 1 hour, 25 minutes. On a day filled mostly with qualifying matches, fifth-seeded Marcel Granollers of Spain also entered the second with a 7-5, 3-6, 6-2 win over Aljaz Bedene of Slovenia, while Guido Pella of Argentina defeated Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain 7-6 (6), 6-4 to advance. The 227th edition of the Merseyside Derby has Liverpool looking to extend their mastery of Everton but also staying within touching distance of rampaging Chelsea as the two sides meet at Goodison Park on Monday.Liverpool (10-4-2) moved into second ahead of Arsenal on goal scored heading into this weekends match day courtesy their 3-0 victory at Middlesbrough on Wednesday. Divock Origi continued his blistering form with a goal for the fifth straight game, bracketed by goals from Adam Lallana on either side of halftime.Derby weekend, however, is an entirely different kind of animal, and one Liverpool have been dominating of late.The Reds carry a 12-match unbeaten streak (5-7-0) in all competitions against their eternal rivals into this contest and have dropped just one of the last 19 in league play (9-9-1) in this fierce rivalry. It is also the longest active contested derby in the top flight dating back to the 1962-63 season.For Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, this will be his first short trip to the blue side of Liverpool, where Toffees supporters will try to make Goodison Park a cauldron similar to Anfield. Klopp, who watched his team dismantle Everton 4-0 at Anfield last season as the Toffees were locked in a death spiral under Roberto Martinez, is excited for the experience.Very, very, very, very big, Klopp said Friday when asked how big the game is. The good thing around the derby is that I dont have to say a lot because everybody knows what it is. For me its pretty special because its my first time at Goodison Park.I like how Liverpool lives with this, the city, lives with these two big clubs. This is the game you want to have. How I said a few times -- football is not the most important thing in the world, but on Monday night Id say for 90 minutes in and around Liverpool, probably it is. So lets do our best.Klopp has also tried to put Liverpools goalkeeper controversy to rest by sticking with Simon Mignolet for the time being. Mignolet took over for the inconsistent Loris Karius against Middlesbrough and finished with his 50th clean sheet in all competitions for the Reds, but was barely tested aside from a shot by Viktor Fischer.I dont want to change each week -- that was not the plan. Simon had a really good game so he will be in goal, for sure, said Klopp, who has been in a war of words through the media with pundits Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher defending Karius.I tried to explain it after the game: it was not about pushing Loris through the situation. Now he can use the time in training and have no pressure, only the pressure he makes himself with getting better.Mignolet is 2-4-0 in six Merseyside derbys, conceding five goals and posting three clean sheets. He has recorded draws in all three appearances between the sticks at Everton, allowing four goals and making 13 saves. Mignolet made nine of those saves in a wild 3-3 draw in the 2013-14 campaign.Liverpools offence continues to hum without injured playmakers Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge, though there is a chance Sturridge could be available off the bench for this match. Emre Can also appears set to return after missing two contests with a knee injury suffered in practice, while Joel Matip is trying to be match fit as well.The Reds have a Premier League-best 40 goals, scoring two or more on 12 occasions, and it has been Origi and Lallana picking up the slack. Lallana has three goals in his last two games and six to go with a team-high six assists in league play.The manager wants fluidity throughout the team, Lallana told Liverpools official website. When youve got (Sadio) Mane, (Georgino) Wijnaldum making selfless runs … Firmino, Divock, (Jordan) Henderson and myself -- it is very fluid.Were still learning and were learning to play without Philippe. But the sooner we can have him back, the better.Its probably a good thing for Everton (6-5-5) that Coutinho will be a spectator given how he ran riot in the seconnd half of that 4-0 whitewashing last season. Wholesale Nike Shoes China. . The Toffees played the final 40 minutes down a man after Ramiro Funes Mori was given a straight red card.But new manager Ronald Koeman has a chance to complete a big double at home this week as his side try to parlay the momentum of their 2-1 victory Wednesday over Arsenal into this match.Defender Ashley Williams headed home the winner from Ross Barkleys corner on 86 minutes as Everton took advantage of a refereeing error by Mark Clattenburg from a previous corner that generated the buildup for Williams decisive goal. It was also a deserved goal for a Toffees team that won for just the second time in their last 11 league matches (2-4-5).That was very satisfying, said Seamus Coleman, who scored the teams first goal, to evertontv. It was important that we put in a performance where afterwards we could go home and look in the mirror no matter what the result.It was the kind of effort the Toffees supporters have been longing for, their players getting stuck in and launching physical challenges with abandon. As Everton grew in the ascendancy, the fans responded in kind as the fervour reached a fever pitch that climaxed with Williams winner.For Koeman, who had called his team out for soft play during their periods of struggle, the effort was vindication as he also reintroduced Ross Barkley after the mercurial midfielder had been dropped for the Manchester United match and came off the bench last weekend versus Watford.This will be Koemans first taste of the Merseyside derby, but the Dutch boss has had his share of rivalry matches, both as a player for Barcelona in El Clasico versus Real Madrid and during coaching stints in the Netherlands. Hes eager to bring more happy moments for those in the Park End.These games between Everton and Liverpool are always about the derby mentality and the passion of the fans, he noted. We know its important to win the game to make the fans happy and proud of the team and its really nice to be part of this derby.If you go walking through Liverpool, the fans are talking about the game already. It makes it easy to motivate the players. Then it is a case of asking tactical questions of them and controlling emotions because that is always a big part of the game. You dont want to make stupid fouls or reactions and you want to keep all 11 players on the pitch.One player Koeman will not have available is Phil Jagielka, who will serve a red card ban for this match after picking up a second caution in stoppage time versus Arsenal. Funes Mori is the most likely candidate to team with Leighton Baines in central defence.Everton keeper Maarten Stekelenburg will be making his first derby appearance but carries an 0-1-3 lifetime mark against Liverpool. He was on the receiving end of a 6-1 thrashing in his most recent outing against them on Dec. 2, 2015, while playing a League Cup match for Southampton.Romelu Lukaku will try to rediscover his goal-scoring touch after being held off the scoresheet versus Arsenal. He has a team-leading nine goals in league play, but only three at home. The Belgium international has been a menace to Liverpool with four goals in five lifetime matches, including the equaliser in last seasons corresponding fixture.The last four matches at Goodison Park have ended in stalemates, with the last winning decision belonging to Liverpool in a 2-0 victory Oct. 1, 2011.Despite this being dubbed the friendly derby because supporters arent separated in the stands, the on-pitch tempers have flared constantly between the players. Moris sending off last season was the 21st red card between the teams in the Premier League era, far and away the most of any derby.Liverpool has won 89 derby matches compared to 66 for Everton, and the teams have split the points on 71 occasions. Cheap Hoodies From China Discount NFL Shirts Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Fast Shipping China Jerseys Stitched Jerseys ' ' '
