Default Tim Duncan will retire soon and people won't give a damn

and it's unfortunate that one of the best and most successful players ever will go out so unpraised by the general public.

Yeah... who the fuck is Tim Duncan? Why the fuck should we care about a name we've never heard of?

no big deal. AI is going out worse. Payton went out pretty bad. Duncan's had enough love for what he's done from fans/media already to last him 3 retirements of due credit.

What happens when Kobe retires? Will a million 'stans blast themselves? I hope so.

If there is a lockout, it would be appropriate if the Spurs won the championship and Duncan rode into the sunset.

Spurs fans are people and they will give a Damn. So will true NBA fans. I mean they are retiring not dying, what should the general public do in tour eyes to pay homage?

People care, and its sad that this day is coming. Shaq just retired, AI flame out, Kobe is declining, KG on his last legs (although looks better than Duncan), Kidd, G.Hill and Nash will retire very soon too

Cant beat Father Time, and all players get the recognition they deserved. Except maybe AI, but he can only blame himself.

Paul Pierce is still going strong. That's good news.

i would care a little bit.

the best PF to ever played the game, great person, had some historical season, top 5 post player ever...

Brook Lopez is the biggest Tim Duncan fan in the NBA so i hope Timmy will retire and work on Lopez' game a little. Its funny how i'm not really THAT big of a fan of Tim Duncan about love watching Brook Lopez.

Exactly.

Not many retirements are "big deals". Jordan first retired when he was still great, so that was shocking. Erving retired due to his disease...
Players that leave the game while they're still good players. That's what people care about most.

Duncan will be missed, but he is over the hill already and the end of his playing days is nearing. This is just how it goes I already miss prime Duncan.. I still love to watch Timmy play though. When he retires, he will be missed by me, just like I miss tons of players that have retired since I've started watching the game.

Trust me on this though, Duncan's name won't ring out quick. All this "he is not mentioned enough/underrated for his career" stuff is just BS. He is generally accepted as the best PF ever by players/commentators/fans of the game. One of the best fundamental players ever. Arguably the best player of the 2000's. That label will stick.

Much respect to Duncan, his game isn't the most exciting, but it's effective.......I think I would like him more if he didn't whine about every single foul ever called against him

It's kind of his own fault though. The dude did not make himself available for the "general public." How many commercials has he been in? Not counting the NBA Cares commercials. I'm talking Gatorade, Nike, etc...
