There was some sentiment that Timmy was going to opt out to restructure his contract, but that is a conversation that can be had next summer. That means that Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker, Tim Duncan, and Gregg Popovich will all come off the books following the 2014-15 season, and that could be the end of one of the leagues most impressive basketball dynasties; but we still have another year to go before we enter that conversation.

Tim Duncan is not expected to exercise his player option for next season and may sign a new two-year deal with the Spurs, according to Buck Harvey of the San Antonio Express-News.

The deal is expected to lower the team's payroll for the upcoming season while it may be more reward-based for the future Hall of Famer. Duncan's player option is for $10 million this season, so the Spurs may save a couple million for next season in an effort to go for the repeat. His fantasy value is still going to be in the early-middle rounds of drafts.

The Rockets are reportedly making a "hard push" to convince Lionel Hollins to join Kevin McHale's coaching staff as an assistant.

Hollins has been waiting for another head coaching opportunity to open up and he may not accept an offer from the Rockets until the Lakers and Cavaliers fill their vacant positions. In his last stint as a head coach with the Grizzlies from 2010-2013, Hollins compiled a combined 143-87 record for an impressive .622 win percentage.

Tim Duncan is still undecided about retiring following this season.

"I don't have any plans on doing anything," Duncan said. "I'm going to figure it out when it comes. I'm not saying I'm retiring. I'm not saying I'm not retiring. I'm not saying anything." He just broke Magic Johnson's playoff double-double record and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's record for playoff minutes. Duncan clearly has something left in the tank and he'll have until June 24 to decide on whether he wants to pick up his $10.3 million option.

"I don't know when I'm going to retire," Duncan said at a news conference before Game 1 of the Finals. "I don't know what the factors are going to be. I don't know any of that and I don't care about any of that stuff right now. It will happen when it happens."

Tim Duncan turned in a double-double against the Heat in Game 4's win on Thursday with 10 points, 11 boards, two assists, two steals, one block and no turnovers in 31 minutes.

The Spurs brought the defense in a big way. Miami only had 30 points in the paint and they went scoreless in the fast-break points department in the first half before scoring seven of those in the second half. As for Duncan, he has just outworked every guy the Heat put on him for better position and get very easy buckets at the rim. It would be a surprise if the Spurs don't finish this thing off on Sunday at home. Additionally, the Big Fundamental set the record for most playoff double-doubles in NBA history.

Tim Duncan tied Magic Johnson's NBA record with 157 career postseason double-doubles on Sunday, posting 18 points, 15 rebounds and one block in the Spurs' Game 2 defeat.

Throughout the playoffs Duncan has been questioned about his plans for retirement, but the 38-year-old's play suggests he's nowhere near finished. He made 7-of-14 field goals and looked spry throughout the game, but his line was blemished by a 4-of-8 mark at the free throw line, including two of the Spurs' four consecutive misses with six minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. The Spurs will look to regain their edge in the series during Tuesday's Game 3 in Miami.

Tim Duncan was almost unstoppable vs. the Heat in Game 1's 110-95 win, making 9-of-10 from the field for 21 points with 10 rebounds, three assists and five turnovers.

It was all about position for Duncan with nine of his 10 shots coming from within four feet of the hoop. The Heat didn't have an answer for him at all as his efficiency shows, which wasn't a strength in the last two rounds. Duncan didn't shoot above 49 percent in either of the last two rounds, but the lack of size on Miami spelled trouble. The Spurs will look to take a 2-0 lead on Sunday.

Tim Duncan said the Spurs will "do it this time" in their NBA Finals rematch vs. the Heat.

We're happy it's the Heat," Duncan added. The Spurs had one of the tougher roads in the playoffs, facing the Mavericks, Blazers and Thunder. Meanwhile, Miami had one of the easier trips vs. the Bobcats, Nets and Pacers. Unlike last year, the Spurs have home-court advantage in what should be a very exciting series.

Tim Duncan lived in the paint during Game 6 to get his Spurs to the NBA Finals, finishing with 19 points, 15 boards, two assists, two steals and one block on 6-of-14 from the field.

He had outstanding position all night, but the shots just weren't going down. He shot 4-of-12 in regulation with all of those coming in the paint, then he really picked it up in overtime. Duncan's legs looked a little tired for really the first time in a while, but it's certainly not enough to say he'll slow down the rest of the way. He'll be ready for Game 1 vs. Miami on Thursday.
