After seasons in the NBA, Tim Duncan has announced that he will be retiring.
The San Antonio Spurs Forward was originally chosen by the Spurs in 1997 as the first overall pick. Duncan went on to help the organization reach the playoffs in each of his 19 seasons, ultimately making him a five-time NBA champion, a 15-time NBA All-Star and the only player in league history to start and win a title in three different decades, according to the NBA’s website.
Duncan is also the Spurs all-time NBA leader in total points (26,496), rebounds (15,091), blocked shots (3,020), minutes (47,368) and games played (1,392), as well as third in assists (4,225). In NBA history, Duncan is fifth all-time in double-doubles (841) and blocks, sixth in rebounding and 14th in scoring, the association’s website says.
