Just 44 minutes before Game of the NBA Finals, a report emerged Tony Parker and Tim Duncan had missed warmups because they were stuck in traffic.
But they arrived in time for tipoff:
Professional athletes are creatures of habit, and there’s no telling how an unusual warmup routine will affect their play. I guarantee they’re not happy about it, though.
The fans who aren’t yet to the arena will probably be unhappy too about missing some of the game.
At least they won’t completely miss their role.
