The NBA reacts to Tim Duncan’s retirement

HANG TIME BIG CITY — The NBA world learned today that San Antonio Spurs forward Tim Duncan is officially retiring after a career that spanned 19 seasons. Hailed by many as the greatest power forward of all-time, Duncan leaves behind a towering legacy of accomplishments accumulated over two decades with the Spurs: five NBA titles, two MVPs, three NBA Finals MVPs, fifteen All-Star appearances, and seventeen appearances on an All-NBA first, second or third team.

With Duncan walking away, today many around the NBA took to social media to share their respects …

I've been waiting all day for someone tell me it was a joke or a lie….I feel like one of the luckiest guys of my generation to be able to share the court with you for 5 years…you were and still are one my biggest idols since I was in middle school…I will forever cherish these moments and the countless times you've been the guy to encourage me and lift me up with confidence as if the roles were reversed…you truly are the greatest most humble teammate and person I've ever come across…I can go on for days about how much you've taught me, you are the ultimate professional and the reason why the spurs organization has been the best in sports for 20yrs…the league/game won't be the same without you, you will be truly missed…and I will miss you the most, because you were also the guy to have my back when pop cussed me out lol…and a final note, I would like to call…Dibs! On your parking space, seat on the plane, locker, everything! Lol I'm lucky to be able to call you family, much love tiny Tim #Thank you #Thebigfundamental #21 #GPFOAT #Legend
