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

Count Tim Duncan among supporters of embattled Atlanta Hawks general manager Danny Ferry. Duncan on Wednesday defended Ferry, his former teammate on the Spurs, against charges of racism after his use of racially charged comments during a conference call with the Hawks ownership group in June. Ferry has since taken a leave of absence from his post in Atlanta. “Knowing Danny, he’s not what everybody’s saying about him. He’s not a racist,” Duncan told another former teammate, Antonio Daniels, during a radio interview with the San Antonio radio station KZDC. San Antonio Express-News

A day after committing to another season with the Spurs, newly re-crowned NBA champion Tim Duncan appeared on CBS’s “The Late Show with David Letterman” and told the titular host he briefly contemplated making a different decision. When Letterman asks Duncan if he thought about retiring after the Spurs’ NBA Finals victory over Miami earlier this month, the 38-year-old All-Star forward replied, “I did, I did.” San Antonio Express-News

“I thought about calling it a career,” Duncan said. “But I felt I could at least do one more year. I felt I was still effective. I felt I could still play and help the team.” Duncan had faced a Tuesday deadline to decide whether to opt in to the final season of his contract, which will pay him $10.36 million in 2014-15. He informed the Spurs of his choice return for an 18th NBA season Monday afternoon. San Antonio Express-News
