Popovich opens up about future with Spurs, Duncan
San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich tends to play personal information close to the vest, so it was surprising to hear him discuss his future so candidly. Popovich goes into detail on several issues pertaining to his team's season, his own future, and whether he believes this could be the last we ever see of Tim Duncan.
Despite the prevailing thought around the league that this season would likely be 38-year-old Duncan's last, Popovich doesn't see it that way because — stop us if you've heard this before — of how well his beloved big man is playing. The two men won't truly know until they discuss the matter this summer, like they did last offseason, but Popovich isn't planning the retirement party just yet. "No matter how (the season) ends, I think Timmy is going to look at (retirement) again," Popovich told USA TODAY Sports on Tuesday. "And if you ask me, my guess is that he'll go for another one because he has been so consistent this season.
