A Classy NBA Player Retires
You rarely get a chance to say "Classy NBA Star" in the same sentence, but Tim Duncan is truly a classy NBA star and who retired today.
From ESPN: After five NBA titles, two NBA MVP awards, 15 All-Star appearances and a spot on many lists as the greatest power forward of all time, San Antonio Spurs star Tim Duncan is calling it a career.
Duncan, who turned 40 in April, announced Monday that he is retiring from the NBA after 19 seasons, all with San Antonio.
"More cutthroat than people give him credit for," Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant told ESPN's Marc Stein on Monday upon learning of Duncan's retirement. "I loved everything about him on the court."...
Since drafting Duncan, the Spurs posted a 1,072-438 regular-season record. That is the best 19-year stretch in NBA history and tops in the four major U.S. sports over the past 19 years. http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/16980885/tim-duncan-san-antonio-spurs-announces-retirement
San Antonio was lucky enough to have 2 very classy NBA with Duncan and David Robinson.
Thank you Tim for your 19 years of playing NBA basketball.
