As we all know, Tim Duncan is quite possibly the greatest basketball player of his generation (with apologies to Kobe Bean Bryant).

As with all legends, however, his playing days must end eventually. Although basketball fans would love nothing more than to see Duncan and Gregg Popovich win their 5th championship together in a matter of days, then ride off into the sunset together on a shining white horse, they both have to do something after retirement, right?
