Tim Duncan, San Antonio Spurs Agree to 3-Year Deal

Back in May, 36-year old Tim Duncan announced to the world (not too shockingly) that his intention was to be a San Antonio Spurs “for life.” Today, the two sides took an important step in making his wish come true. Per Yahoo! Sports: “Tim Duncan will sign a three-year contract with the Spurs this week, league sources said. Duncan’s representatives and the Spurs are finalizing a few items, but the structure has been agreed upon. The contract is expected to be in the range of the three-year, $34 million deal Kevin Garnett reached with the Boston Celtics the day before the NBA’s free-agent market opened.”

    This is as shocking as when Anderson Cooper came out.

    They should have made it 10 years, 360 million, for an eventual player/coach role followed by a consultant gig. Because, you know, it’s Tim.

    Is he the same, 39 MPG, 24 PPG, 13 RPG player? Clearly not but his smarts, preparation and ability to raise his game in the clutch means he is still an elite player. Who would you take, TD or Dirk? TD or KG?

    The Spurs should pick up Dwight Howard – Duncan and Pop could keep his head straight

    Besides team loyalty why is Duncan staying on the Spurs?

    He should sign veteran minimum with Heat, thunder, lakers, nets, or even celtics so that he can win another 1 or 2 titles.

    @The Base…This same San Antonio team wil definitely beat those teams you mentioned, they almost made it to the Finals if you remember. Yeah even with each team’s new acquisition.

    Ok how much flak ds KG get for being paid too much apparently? I don’t see anybody on here doing te same to Timmy. KG played better then Tim In playoffs. I have no problem with Timmy getting that much, the same goes with KG just funny how a lot of people were putting KG down.

    @The base: Not everyone jumps on the bandwagon. Why in the hell would he join those teams for less money? To win a championship?
