Former NBA player and former head coach of the San Antonio Spurs, Tim Duncan, was recently interviewed by Bleacher Beat and told the interviewer that his career was a flop and that he has no idea what he’s doing as a coach.
When asked if he was a professional athlete, Duncan responded: “I don’t think so.
It’s true that Duncan never played professionally, but he did make the All-Star team in 2006.
He was also the NBA’s highest paid player in 2008 with $1.6 million.
Duncan has had a good career and will be remembered as one of the greatest coaches in NBA history, but the real question remains: How is he doing in the NBA?
While it’s been widely reported that Duncan is on the verge of retirement, he has said he will not retire from coaching because it is his passion.
“I’m doing this to help kids and young people, I’m doing it because I love coaching,” Duncan told ESPN last month.
“If I was going to retire, I would probably do it now because I have so much love for the game of basketball.
However, he also admitted that he’s “still young” and that, if he does retire, he’s not going to give up his job as head coach.”
I think what I would like to do is to do some sort of a leadership role and I would love to have a seat at the table.
I think that’s the way I want to be remembered.
I would just like to be able to say I’m a part of this team, this city, this community,” Duncan said.”
That’s my ultimate goal and that’s what I want, but I’m still young, so I just want to help other kids be part of something that’s going to last forever.
That’s what’s so cool about this profession is that you have the ability to be a role model, a role player, and I’m just one of those guys.”
Duncan is not alone in wanting to be an example to other coaches and that is the way it should be, according to his former assistant coach, Scott Smith.”
Smith added that Duncan’s departure would leave a hole in the coaching ranks, and while it may not be the best move for the franchise, the move would be in the best interests of the franchise and the community.””
The thing that makes him unique is that he is one of our best coaches in the league, and he’s one of these guys who has really helped turn the city of San Antonio around, and that I think is really cool to see.
Smith added that Duncan’s departure would leave a hole in the coaching ranks, and while it may not be the best move for the franchise, the move would be in the best interests of the franchise and the community.”
It would be a tremendous waste of his time and I think it’s a tremendous loss to the community and to the Spurs organization.” “
But we don’t have the time, we don’ t have the resources, and if we had to do it over again, I don’t know if I’d want to take the job.
It would be a tremendous waste of his time and I think it’s a tremendous loss to the community and to the Spurs organization.”
As much as he may be a basketball fan, Duncan would be most likely happy working for his hometown team.
The NBA is in a financial crisis, and as much as Duncan’s tenure as head of the Spurs might have helped the team’s bottom line, the team has been in the red since the 2009-10 season.
According to Forbes, the Spurs have made $1,788,837 in profits from their recent five-year deal with the NBA, which includes the 2009–10 season, and they’re scheduled to earn a $1 million profit in 2018-19.
With the NBA in a dire financial situation, the league could easily pass the $500 million mark in losses in 2018 and 2019.
Although Duncan has always been the team leader and the heart and soul of the team, the financial picture may be different now.
The team has recently been under new ownership and is now playing for a new contract.
The new owner, Mark Cuban, is a big fan of Duncan and has made him an integral part of the organization.
It’s unlikely that the franchise will be able come back to the same success as before, and Duncan may leave as the head of a rebuilding team.
