Tim Duncan

The Spurs suffered a 113 – 99 loss to the Thunder on Thursday night. The Spurs exit from the NBA playoffs left many people wondering if the game was Tim Duncan’s last in the league. 

40-year-old Duncan finished the night with 19 points on 7-of-14 shooting. He also put up five rebounds and one block. Duncan’s won five titles in 19 seasons. 

It’s highly expected that Duncan will retire but he says he’ll take his time to decide. 

Teammate Tony Parker simply said it’s a waiting game.

We’ll see,” Parker told ESPN. 

Manu Ginobili, who is also considering retirement, says regardless of what happens in the future, it’s been a fun ride. 

“Of course, it’s been an amazing run,” said teammate Ginobili, 38. “We all enjoy playing with each other. I’m so proud of having played with those guys for so many years and winning so many games, and even playing with the new guys. If there’s a reason why you always want to come back and keep being part of this, [it’s] because of the amazing chemistry, the good times and the good people that you play with and spend time with. It’s not always about winning a game or winning a championship. But you learn from losses, and it’s important to enjoy every day. Being a part of this team, I’m very proud of it, even if sometimes it doesn’t go our way.”
