Tim Duncan’s Final Years

Tim Duncan is a retired professional basketball player who played his entire 19-year career with the San Antonio Spurs. Widely considered to be the greatest power forwards of all time, he is a five-time NBA champion, two-time NBA MVP, three-time NBA Finals MVP, and NBA Rookie of the Year. He is also a 15-time NBA All-Star and the only player to be selected to both the All-NBA and All-Defensive Teams in all of his first 13 seasons. Tim Duncan had a very notable career, but I want to focus on his last years in the NBA. On November 14, 2014, Duncan scored his 25,000th point in the first half of the Spurs’ 93–80 win over the Los Angeles Lakers, becoming the 19th player in NBA history to reach the milestone. On November 2, 2015, in a win over the New York Knicks, Duncan recorded 16 points, 10 rebounds and six assists in his NBA-record 954th victory with one team, surpassing John Stockton’s 953 wins with the Utah Jazz.On February 27, in a win over the Houston Rockets, he became the fifth player in NBA history to reach 3,000 blocks. On March 10, Duncan became the sixth player in league history with 15,000 rebounds. On April 5, in a win over the Utah Jazz, he became the third player with 1,000 victories in the regular season. On June 28, 2016, Duncan opted into his $5.6 million contracts for the 2016–17 season. However, on July 11, 2016, he announced his retirement from the NBA after 19 seasons with San Antonio. Tim Duncan had an incredible career in the NBA and set a lot of personal achievements in his last couple of years in the NBA. He is one of my all-time favorite players and is an inspiration to many.BKN Spurs forward Tim Duncan hugging coach Gregg Popovich at jersey retirement ceremony_1482163438593_7384805_ver1.0
