As I post this, the fourth quarter is starting between the Spurs and Thunder. The Spurs are down 91-65. Tim Duncan, the greatest power forward ever, is staring down elimination, has 13 points and still looks like a shell of his former self.
Will this be Duncan's final game?

It should be, unless he wants to play 5min per game next year. He is done, age finally got him.

Its time. I thought he was going to retire like 5 or 6 years ago, but then he had a resurgence of sorts. Now though, I don't think he can make a similar spurt.

I'll look like an idiot if this comeback continues, but it'll totally be worth it.

I think he comes back, plays 8 min a game, and is a part of the team still.

He had a bad series, but he played well all year.

Having him around next season, even at 15 minutes a game, would be a big help, on the court and in the locker room.

I think he's going to wait and see what moves the Spurs make, but my gut says he's back next year.

Besides, he's got 5 million sitting on the table, and he lost like 10 mil from his business manager.

He is finished. Should have announced at beginning of season. But he will play another year to get send off like Robinson.

He turned into Tim Dumbcan this year.

He turned into Tim Dumbcan this year.

He was probably the 3rd best player on a 67 win team, albeit a balanced one, that nearly made the WCF. Is this Kobephile bitterness? :confused:

I'm starting to lean toward him coming back next season. I don't think money's a huge issue, but he can be that cheerleader off the bench and play defense in some clutch situations.
More importantly, it allows everyone to give him a proper goodbye. He deserves that, considering he was more valuable than Kobe Bryant and the greatest power forward ever.

I thought he was gonna go on for another 3-4 more seasons last playoffs when he was killin' it against the Clippers. Since that series he has really taken a nose-dive. 19 years in the league is enough, time to hang 'em up.

The thing with legendary bigs as they age isn't so much a decline in performance as much as it is availability/health. Duncan was a DOMINANT defender in his limited minutes this year, then he got hurt and was never the same. The goal is to have him fresh but it's time he's a situational advantage
