The NBA Reacts to Duncan’s Retirement

The NBA Reacts to Duncan’s Retirement

Monday’s announcement from San Antonio that 40-year old Tim Duncan was retiring after a brilliant 19-year career with the San Antonio Spurs caused a stir throughout the sports world.  The reaction to the under-stated Duncan’s departure, demonstrates what a force he was in the NBA and why he not only was the league’s greatest power forward, but may be one of its five greatest players of all-time.

In part one of this post,  I outlined Duncan’s accomplishments.  In part two (below), we show how the league and others reacted to the news.

The San Antonio Spurs posted a special retrospective page of Duncan’s career, while ESPN posted a page outlining Duncan’s accomplishments by the numbers, while the Spurs and others reacted on social media.
