Etan Thomas Has the Perfect Tim Duncan Story

WASHINGTON — Tim Duncan announced his retirement from the NBA after 19 years, fittingly via understated San Antonio Spurs-issued press release.

As a five-time NBA champion, three-time NBA Finals MVP and two-time NBA MVP who ranks 17th all-time in points scored (26,496), 7th in rebounds (15,091) and 6th in blocks (3,020), Duncan’s retirement makes him a shoo-in for the Hall of Fame Class of 2021, co-headlined by Kobe Bryant.

Former Washington Wizards big man Etan Thomas, whose 10-year career coincided with Duncan’s, re-shared on Facebook the perfect Duncan anecdote — which had previously made the rounds on Duncan’s 39th birthday — upon hearing news of his retirement Monday.

Thomas added on Monday, “Greatest power forward of all time,” a sentiment being shared around league circles on social media.
