Tim Duncan - The Big Fundamental Retires From NBA

The Big Three for the Spurs- Duncan, Parker, Ginobili
The NBA lost one of the best players ever when Tim Duncan announced his retirement from the league earlier today, ending a 19-year career, all with the San Antonio Spurs.
Nicknamed "The Big Fundamental" because of his manner of play with the patented bank shot, along with superb defense and rebounding and stellar passing in the fluid San Antonio offense through the years, Duncan will easily be a Hall-of-Famer while racking up five championship titles (in six trips to the NBA Finals) along with two league MVP awards and three NBA Finals MVP awards.

Coach "Pops" and Duncan enjoy the Spurs' 2014 NBA title.
Along with guards Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili, Duncan formed "The Big Three" for the Spurs for 14 seasons, and the trio won four NBA titles together. Let's not forget the 1999 title either, when Duncan and "The Admiral"  Hall-of-Famer center/forward David Robinson formed the "Twin Towers" in San Antonio.  That 1999 NBA championship was the first ever for the San Antonio Spurs.
Along with Head Coach Gregg Popovich, Duncan and "Pops" are synonymous with Spurs basketball. Five NBA titles during their 19 years together in the Lone Star state.

Watch and enjoy the brilliance of Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs.

Enjoy your retirement Timmy!

You have definitely earned it...  Next stop - the NBA Hall-of-Fame.
