Although He's Retired, Tim Duncan Is Still the Last Person to Leave Spurs' Practice

Tim Duncan isn't ready to give up basketball.

Former San Antonio Spurs superstar Tim Duncan can't seem to get away from the court. Duncan retired back in July but was spotted a few days after training camp coaching up the younger guys at the Spurs' practice facility. Well, the 19-year vet was recently back again, but this time he was taking shots of his own.

Spurs beat writer Jeff McDonald and reporter Michael C. Wright tweeted photos of Duncan shooting around after the team's practice on Monday. The 5-time NBA champion was launching free throws and tossing up shots inside the paint. And just like he did during his playing career, he was the last person to leave the gym.




Duncan is clearly not ready to give up basketball. He could be doing anything he wants in his free time, but he decided to honor a 20-year Spurs tradition by being the last one on the court. Maybe he will come back from retirement to help his old team out. The Spurs are off to a 5-2 start, but they are 28th in the league in field goals made less than 10 feet from the basket.
