San Antonio Spurs to retire Tim Duncan’s No. 21 jersey on Dec. 18

The San Antonio Spurs will retire the No. 21 jersey of future Hall of Famer Tim Duncan on Dec. 18, the team announced Wednesday.

A veteran of 19 NBA seasons — all with the Spurs — Duncan retired in July with five NBA titles, two NBA MVP awards, 15 All-­Star appearances and a spot on many lists as the greatest power forward of all time.

He also partnered with Gregg Popovich to post the most wins by a player and coach in NBA history, with 1,001. After drafting Duncan in 1997, the Spurs posted a 1,072-438 regular-season record — the best 19-year stretch in NBA history and tops in the four major U.S. sports in that period.
