SAN ANTONIO SPURS
When he decided to come back:
Honestly it snuck up on me. I kinda got a call from my agent two or three days before the deadline, it was like, “You gotta choose by Tuesday.” I was like, “Oh, all right, well, I guess, yeah let’s go,” because I felt good at that point and I had a couple weeks off and away from the whole thing.
Where the 2014 championship fits among his titles:
I think I enjoyed that one more than any other.
General manager R.C. Buford
What San Antonio needs to do to repeat:
I think we gotta be healthy, that’s a first. I know our guys are gonna come compete. There’s a lot of very good teams, and you have to be playing well during the playoffs, and you have to be healthy, then we’ll take our shot and see what happens.
Did he think Duncan would return?
We know there will be a time and a day when Tim says, “I’m done.” We’re glad it wasn’t now. He’s playing at such a level that I think he feels good and feels competitive, and he’s not gonna put himself in a position where he’s not gonna play well. … He wants to play, and I hope he continues for a long time.
