Duncan calls time on career

San Antonio Spurs legend Tim Duncan, arguably the greatest power forward ever to play professional basketball, has retired. He announced Monday he was leaving the game after 19 years in the NBA.

Duncan’s glittering career saw him become a five-time NBA champion, a three-time NBA Finals MVP, a two-time league MVP and a 15-time All-Star. Born in the United States Virgin Islands, Duncan was picked by the Spurs franchise as the first overall pick of the draft in 1997.

The 40-year-old helped create a dynasty in San Antonio alongside Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili, with the Spurs one of the most feared teams to face in the league.

The trio hold the NBA record for most wins by three players in both the regular season (575) and postseason (126). Led by coach Gregg Popovich, Duncan also has the most wins for a player-coach duo in NBA history (1,001).

Duncan will also be remembered as a player that dominated the playoffs having become the only player to log 9,000 career minutes in the postseason.

However, it became apparent last season that Duncan had taken a major step back physically and was unable to produce the sort of performances that make him a shoo-in as a future Hall of Fame player.

Duncan played a total of 1392 games, averaging 19 points, 10.8 rebounds and 3 assists. He holds the Spurs record for the most points, rebounds, assists, minutes played and games played.
