    Why retire when you still have a lot in the tank? Even as his offense becomes less dynamic, he still protects the rim at an elite level.

    Obviously try and repeat. He is still playing at a very high level and so is the rest of the team. Leonard was a beast at the end of the series as well. They can contend for a championship next season.

    Celtics need to stay the course, rebuild and trade Rondo.

    I believe you go out on top, yeah it requires you to leave some of that fire on the table but your body will probably appreciate it. Also keeps you from hurting your legacy.

    No good reason to retire. Going out on top is nice and all, but if you can still play (something he's proven) and you are on a championship caliber team, why bother? It's not like he's a guy playing way longer than he should and embarrassing himself by doing so...he's still a contributor.

    I think the "going out on top" thing doesn't matter a ton from a legacy perspective. Who do we really significantly credit or discredit for going out on top or not? Individually it might mean something to him, but knowing he can still play and that he left a great team...well...that's something that certainly could cause a conflict of emotions down the road.

    Could Duncan play 5 more years as a role player and remain effective in that role?

    He really has nothing left to prove. He has done anything he could have done in his career and nothing else he does after this point will impact the way everybody sees him. His place in nba history is already set in stone and what better way than to go on top.

    Why the hell would be retire? Players who "go out on top" when they still have the ability are just scared to lose. These types of players do not deserve respect or admiration.

    That is your opinion and a lot of people disagree with it. Not saying you are wrong because some people mite agree with you. But just because you say doesnt mean that we all should feel the same.

    So if he decides to retire this will be your last thoughts of him?

    I could see this as an excuse for a player of LeBron's age, but not Duncan. He's what, 38 going on 39, he has small kids he probably wants to spend time with, who knows how many more seasons his body could hold up, he's been damn fortunate for a big to last this long. He's had an amazing run, there is nothing wrong about walking away now after he has accomplished so much. They came back after last season to redeem themselves and did just that. What more could they ask for?

    I see valid points for both sides, I'd love to see that group go for a repeat too, but I'm not going to blame him either way.

    Try to repeat. Duncan has a team that could try to win also next year and he's aging very well. I think they'll need some youth to remain dominant,but SA front office knows always what to do.

    Plenty of time to sit on his ***. Playing in the NBA is the pinnacle of anyone's life and retirement is the beginning of the end.

    If this series had gone 7 I would have said retire but with the curb stomping the Spurs just gave they can definitely repeat so I'd give it another season.
