'The Big Fundamental' Tim Duncan announced that he is retiring from the NBA today.
5 x NBA Champion, 3 x Finals MVP, 2 x League MVP and the greatest two-way player of the post Jordan era.
In his typical humble fashion, he exits quietly out the back door. He didn't go for 50 field goal attempts in his last game, there wasn't a film crew documenting every angle of every drop of sweat. Duncan didn't need the 'final countdown' parade, that's not his vibe and never has been. This is what we all loved about the guy.. There was never any bullshit. He was the real deal and so was his game. A pure and fundamentally sound basketball player, a once in a generation talent with a passion for the game unlike no other.
Here's to the greatest player of his generation. Here's to the greatest power forward of all time. A Top 10 player of all time... Farewell Tim Duncan.
