According to former NBA head coach George Karl, Tim Duncan has made up his mind about this being his final season. Not so, says Duncan (who had 19 points and 13 boards in the Spurs’ 113-103 road win over the Clippers Tuesday night.) Per the Express-News:

Citing “whispers” and phone calls, including from San Antonio, about Duncan’s plans, Karl told ESPN on Tuesday he had heard of Duncan’s plan to exercise his player option to walk away from the final season of his three-year deal with the Spurs and retire after this season.

“I’d like to know who he talked to,” Duncan said. “I don’t know what I’m going to do so I don’t know how he knows what I’m going to do.”

Duncan said he has given no thought to his future plans.

“I don’t worry about that stuff,” he said. “It will take care of itself.”
