With the Spurs loss to the Thunder in semi-finals, many people began to wonder if this was the last time we would see Tim Duncan playing for San Antonio.
In 2016, Duncan played the lowest amount of minutes per game in his career, and posted career lows in points, rebounds and assists. It was clear from the stretch that coach Poppovich was trying to save his legs for the playoffs, but that didn't even hold off father time in the playoffs. At times, Tim seemed overwhelmed by the quickness and strength in many one on one matchups.
The Spurs do have a nice unit young unit in place, which could allow Duncan to come back and play the same role this year. With 5 championships on deck, do he really have to do that though?
