The NBA.com Boxscore Has The Silliest (And Best) Explanation For Why Tim Duncan Didn't Play TonightS

Tim Duncan wasn't hurt tonight. He merely took a day off from the daunting post-lockout grind to rest his bones, and his Spurs beat the Sixers anyway, 93-76. The ESPN.com boxscore says "DNP-REST." The NBA's, pictured above, wasn't so politically correct. "DND-OLD." Poor, poor, old Tim Duncan. He turns 36 in a month.

Update (midnight): Appears this is Pop's way of joking with his geezers. Big Shot Rob Horry got a "DNP-Old Age" back in 2007. And he had a legitimate injury that game, too.
