Future Hall of Famer Hangs ‘Em Up

No matter who won the lottery, the number one prospect on every teams’ draft board was Wake Forest’s Tim Duncan. At the end of Duncan’s senior season at Wake Forest, the Deamon Deacon was named Defensive Player of the Year for the third consecutive time and the Naismith College Player of the Year.

As long as Duncan stayed healthy, every General Manager knew that Duncan would be a solid big man for the next 10 to 12 years.

He garnered the nickname ‘The Big Fundamental’ due to his boring style of play, yet it was effective because Duncan grabbed rebounds, dished out assists and averaged over 20 points for his career.

But what they didn’t know is that he would become a 5x NBA Champ, 3x Finals MVP, 2x NBA MVP and 15x All-Star after 19 seasons with the Spurs to go along with many other accolades throughout his career.

Duncan ends his career as the Spurs franchise leader in many categories including points (26,496), rebounds (15,091), blocks (3,020) and games (1,392).

Congratulations Tim Duncan on a great career with the San Antonio Spurs. You started your career in the same place you are leaving. You respected the game and as a result it respected you. Enjoy retirement, but I think it’s safe to assume we will see you again on a sideline coaching, on TV as a reporter or in the box suite in management.

However, it wouldn’t be fair for Duncan to retire if he didn’t retire some of his clothes too. Duncan might be known just as much for how he dressed off the court than the way he played on it. The man had no sense of style, so just sit back and enjoy some of these pictures.
