In New York we have Derek Jeter, Boston has Tom Brady and Detroit has Nik Lidstrom. What those men have in common is that they have spent their entire proffesional careers with the same franchise. Tim Duncan intends to be part of that club as well. The 36 year old will be a free agent come July 1st, but he wont be going anywhere.

“Though I shouldn’t say that; I have to threaten them that I’ll leave,” Duncan jokingly said “No … I’m not going anywhere. You can print that wherever you want to. I’m here and I’m a Spur for life.”

 

It has become quite rare for a player to spend their entire career with one franchise. With free agency and egotistical players in all 4 of the major sports, most athletes and up leaving for greener pastures when they think their teams time is up. Then again Duncan has never had to worry about being part of a bad program, he is a 4 time NBA Champion who is currently working on number 5.
