The Spurs legend being inducted in 2020 Hall of Fame together with fellow basketball players like the late Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnett. The Spurs enthusiasts are living in joy about this thing. Same with his hometown the Virgin Islands in endless happiness. Their representative Stacey E. Plaskett gives her voice how proud of their ‘son”.
“St. Croix native Tim Duncan has become the first Virgin Islander and the third player in San Antonio franchise history with his jersey retired to be elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame, joining George Gervin and David Robinson. Tim Duncan is among eight finalists – led by the late Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnett- selected on Saturday for induction in August, 2020.
Tim Duncan spent his entire 19-year career with the Spurs. During his tenure, the team won five championships and posted a 1,072-438 regular season record, giving the team a .710 winning percentage, which is the best 19-year stretch in NBA history and was the best in all of the NBA, NFL, NHL and MLB during that span.
“The news of the hurricanes have faded from the headlines, but Tim Duncan has once again put the spotlight on the Virgin Islands.. The spotlight shines on one of the 2020 NBA Hall of Famer inductees, Tim Duncan, and today the Virgin Islands, the United States of America and the world salute you.”
