Congratulations, Tim Duncan

After a 19-year career, Tim Duncan ('97) exited professional basketball this month as he entered: a superstar for the NBA record books. He didn't make a big fuss about his retirement, but sports fans did. Popular sportswriter Bill Simmons summed it up in a tweet: "ALL HAIL THE GREAT TIM DUNCAN."

Duncan finally granted an interview -- to his friend at ViVid Streaming -- sharing his retrospective on his career: "So I'm not a yeller and a screamer, a jumper and a pusher. I'm not gonna do all that stuff with my teammates or opponents. But I've been competitive from Day 1. Whether people recognize that or not, I don't know how they can't. I'm not gonna go out there and try to hurt somebody or win at all means. But if it's up in the air, I'm gonna try harder than you to get it done."

Before Duncan was a legend in the NBA, he was a legend at Wake Forest. He got it done. Read about it here.

Best wishes, champ and Deacs everywhere,
