NBA Rumors: Tim Duncan taking it ‘game by game’ in regards to retirement


Could we be witnessing the final season of San Antonio Spurs power forward Tim Duncan?

Seems a little odd to suggest, especially since Duncan came out and suggested otherwise when reports surfaced that he was pondering retirement. But the Big Fundamental was recently asked about the idea again and Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports reports that Duncan expressed he is taking it on a ‘game by game’ basis in regards to a potential retirement.

When asked if he’d honor his contract through next season, Tim Duncan said he’s taking it “game by game.”

The Spurs have looked like their routine powerhouse self in recent weeks – perfect timing as the NBA playoffs approach.

Could Duncan call it quits if the Spurs have a successful playoff run and go out on top? That all remains to be seen, though it sounds as if Duncan’s a bit more reserved to the fact that retirement could be looming in the somewhat near future.

For now though, they have a job to do.
