Tim Duncan retires

Tim Duncan is one of the greatest Basketball players of all-time. After 19 seasons in the NBA, all with the San Antonio Spurs, he has announced his retirement. This is a huge event because he has been at the top of his game for so long. Over the past couple of years, he has started to degrade in his physical ability. However, he will always have the heart of a champion. During his time in the NBA, he went to the all star game 15 times.

This is a huge accomplishment for any athlete.

The Spurs have always been a team that plays different than the rest of the league. In a time of flashy offense, the Spurs did all of the little things right.

During his time, he helped San Antonio to be one of the most consistent teams in the league.
