Tim Duncan may have retired last season, but his time with the Spurs isn’t over.
The legendary Spurs forward made an appearance after practice Monday afternoon, this time to play 1-on-1 with center Pau Gasol:

It isn’t the first time Duncan’s been spotted practicing post-retirement, either. Express-News beat writer Jeff McDonald tweeted this picture last month:

While it’s not a comeback in the works, Spurs players aren’t complaining when The Big Fundamental shows up to give the benefit of his experience every now and then.
