Spurs GM reveals why Tim Duncan couldn't come back for one more year
We almost avoided a Duncan retirement. Almost.


... "More often than not the only reason he didn't play his best at the end of the year wasn't because he was playing poorly, it was because his body was letting him down. And to see him persevere through that -- a year ago, he was still All-NBA. When he felt good, this year the good knee got tweaked in December and it just never, we never could get it calmed down and it was that point in time where the body finally limited him to a point that he couldn't play to what he wanted to do.

"I think he fully expected to continue to play had the good knee not blown up."
