TIM DUNCAN RETIRES WITH SPURS

San Antonio Spurs forward Tim Duncan today announced that he will retire after 19 seasons with the organization.

Since drafting Duncan, the Spurs won five championships and posted a 1,072-438 regular season record, giving the team a .710 winning percentage, which is the best 19-year stretch in NBA history and was the best in all of the NBA, NFL, NHL and MLB over the last 19 years.

Off the court, Duncan is known for his quiet and unassuming ways, as well as his active philanthropy. He holds a degree in psychology and created the Tim Duncan Foundation to raise general health awareness and fund education and youth sports in various parts of the United States.
