The San Antonio Spurs announced Friday additional details on Tim Duncan’s jersey retirement night.
First and foremost, the ceremony will take place on Sunday, Dec. 18 after the game between San Antonio and the New Orleans Pelicans. It’ll all happen on the AT&T Center court, and it will be televised by both FOX Sports Southwest and the FOX Sports Go app. Radio stations WOAI-AM 1200 and KXTN-FM 107.5 will also broadcast the ceremony.
All fans in attendance will receive an exclusive, commemorative Duncan T-shirt, and fans will also be able to take pictures with a replica banner of Duncan’s No. 21 jersey along with the Spurs’ five NBA Championship trophies.
During halftime, renowned speed artist Vilas Nayak will paint an image of Duncan that will be auctioned off by Silver & Black Give Back.
Immediately following the end of the third quarter, all fans will be encouraged to be in their seats, and will be asked to hold up commemorative placards that will join to create a special message to honor Duncan.
On top of it all, fans are encouraged to participate in the celebration by submitting personal stories, moments and messages on social media using the hashtag #DearTim. The best entries will be shared in-game.
But perhaps the big highlight will be seeing some of Duncan’s best H-E-B commercials on the Jumbotron before the ceremony begins.
It all goes down Dec. 18 in San Antonio.
