NBA superstar Tim Duncan is used to being the center of attention in front of an adoring crowd.

But I make no excuses. I posted my best personal numbers last season, and we still didn’t make the playoffs. Some of the backlash was pretty hard to take — I learned that there is apparently such a thing as an “empty stat” (I’ll try to remember the importance of that the next time I am boxing out for a rebound against Tim Duncan). In the end, I was given the opportunity to move on, and I took it. My decision was about wanting to win. When I think back to being a kid shooting on an eight-foot hoop in my Shawn Kemp jersey, I never dreamed about putting up a triple-double or signing a max contract. I dreamed about holding up a championship trophy. In order to get to that place, I knew that I needed to move on. The Players' Tribune

Cuban hopes it will be Duncan’s last and would like to honor the future Hall of Famer on March 24, the Spurs’ last scheduled trip to Dallas of the season. “If we get word that it’s his last year here, we’ll do something special,” said Cuban, who would similarly honor former Mavs Steve Nash and Jason Terry if they make it clear they plan to retire at the end of the season. “We did the same thing for David Robinson. I’m hoping Tim will bless us with those words.“ What kind of farewell prize might Cuban offer Duncan? The possibilities are practically limitless. "Probably worth a salary-cap violation,” Cuban joked. ESPN.com

“That’s very possible. I always said that [he'd leave with Duncan], because it’s kind of a funny line. It seems pretty logical and smart to do that. I know where my bread is buttered,” Popovich said with a laugh. “But I basically made the same commitments to Manu [Ginobili] and to Tony [Parker] that when they signed contracts, they wanted to know if I’m going to be here and I tell them I am, so it’s pretty tough to go ahead and leave.” Washington Post

From the time the 38-year-old Spurs captain left the champagne-soaked euphoria of the AT&T Center on the night of June 15, an improbable fifth Larry O'Brien trophy in his grasp, he had nine days to decide whether he wanted to put his body through the rigors it would take to try for a sixth. It took all nine of them for Duncan to decide, at last, to opt in for the final season of his contract. “There was some hesitation there,” Duncan admitted. San Antonio Express-News
