On his own show on French radio RMC, Tony Parker talked about the Spurs’ first practice of the season. Among other things, he was really impressed by Tim Duncan: "We had our first training today. Tim was there, Finley too, and all of our rookies. Manu will arrive tomorrow and we will practice all together on Friday. Tim is in great shape. He managed to stay fit during the lockout. Playing in pick-up games with Kevin Durant and former Texas University guys who all came to San Antonio to play together. Tim told me he feels great and I'm sure this season won't be his last one."
