Tim Duncan: There Will Never Be Another

San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Lakers

Tim Duncan came from the sunny shores of the U.S Virgin Islands to a future Hall of Famer.

Yesterday, Duncan announced his retirement from the NBA after 19 seasons. He is a 5x NBA champion and was a 3x NBA Finals MVP. In addition, he was a 2x NBA MVP and the 1998 NBA Rookie of the Year.

He joins John Salley as the only NBA players in history to win an NBA championship in three different decades.

Perhaps the only flaw in Duncan’s game is his free throw shooting. During his career, he shot only 69% from the stripe.

There wasn’t no retirement press conference. No social media postings. Just a press release.

Just a simple goodbye.

Yes, Duncan was quiet. He didn’t really speak to the media. He didn’t get into any trouble with the law.

He is a winner.

Man, the Hall of Fame in 2021 will be stacked.
