Tim Duncan Retires After 19 Legendary Years


Tim Duncan has retired after 19 NBA seasons. A five-time NBA champion, he ends his career widely considered to be one of the greatest power forwards the league has ever seen.

Drafted first overall in 1997, Duncan played his entire professional career for the San Antonio Spurs. Early on, he paired with David Robinson to form a lethal and fearsome frontcourt. In his first season, Duncan was the NBA Rookie of the Year. In his second, the Spurs won the NBA title, and Duncan won his first of three Finals MVP awards.

As he developed into the face of the Spurs franchise, he would add two back-to-back league MVPs, four more NBA titles, and 15 NBA All Star appearances. He is the all-time leading scorer in San Antonio Spurs history, and finished his career with over 26,000 points, 15,000 rebounds, and 3,000 blocks.
