“Tim has always said it depends on how his body feels,” said former Spurs guard Antonio Daniels, who played with Duncan from 1998 to 2002 and remains one of his closest friends. “Your mind will tell you one thing, but your body will tell you different.” Last month, Antonio Daniels spent the eve of what might have been Duncan’s final game texting back and forth with his friend. As is their custom, the pair barely talked basketball. “We were just laughing and joking about foolish stuff,” Daniels said. As for the idea Duncan might already have played his final game? “It’s weird for me to even think about that possibility,” Antonio Daniels said.

Antonio Daniels on LeBron James: “I would hate to be in a locker room with a guy who has one foot out the door already, but is constantly talking about leadership and is constantly talking about the process of becoming a championship-caliber team, a guy who’s constantly talking about, ‘You know, we have to understand the magnitude of the situation that’s here now with the team that we have put together, we have the opportunity to do something special’. ‘Cause in the back of my mind I’m thinking… What a hypocrite! You’re speaking about one thing, but your actions say something completely different.”

Growing up in Columbus, Ohio, Antonio Daniels had a mouth that often trumped his talents on the basketball court. “I don’t know if that’s a good thing,” Daniels, now 40, joked. “I remember getting in lots of trouble with my mom in the classroom for talking.” Since retiring in 2011 following a successful 13-year career in the NBA, Daniels has quickly put his talent for talking to good use. The former point guard was announced Thursday as the new analyst on the Thunder Live pregame and postgame shows this season.
