Those six players have combined for 25 NBA titles.

Description: Former Nuggets coach George Karl is hearing that Spurs forward Tim Duncan may retire after this season. SOURCE: Marc Weinreich, Sports Illustrated
Insight: Duncan hasn't made any public mention of this, so we'll take this rumor with a grain of salt. Certainly with the way Duncan's been playing (15.6 ppg, 10.0 rpg, 2.1 bpg), it looks like he could last another five years in this league.

Description: San Antonio power forward Tim Duncan sat out the second game of a back-to-back, but should be back on the court Saturday.

Description: San Antonio power forward Tim Duncan was unstoppable Wednesday in an overtime win over Washington, but will sit out the second game of the back-to-back Thursday versus Brooklyn.

Description: San Antonio power forward Tim Duncan was unstoppable Wednesday in an overtime win over Washington.
Insight: He led all players in scoring with 31 points on 13-of-20 shooting. Duncan also provided 11 rebounds, five assists, two steals and three blocked shots. If Tony Parker's back injury proves to be serious, Duncan could become the team's go-to scorer. Fantasy owners should consider the Big Fundamentalist a must-start until further notice.
