Nearly 20 Years Ago
The year was 1997. Madeleine Albright had become America’s first female Secretary of State. The Lion King Musical had debuted on Broadway. Steve Jobs had returned to run Apple Computers. And the San Antonio Spurs had selected the first overall pick in the 1997 NBA draft, a young Tim Duncan.
San Antonio’s Tim Duncan
Over the last 19 NBA seasons, Tim Duncan has won over the hearts of this city and showed his gratitude with more than 5 Championship titles. In 2001, he founded the Tim Duncan Foundation which has since raised over $650,000 to support non-profit organizations and programs not only in South Texas, but in North Carolina and the US Virgin Islands. The foundation funds nonprofit organizations that provide education, youth sports and recreation, health awareness, and research. Read more about that foundation at their website slamduncan.com.
Although we are sad that Tim Duncan is retiring, we should feel proud that this great man came to our city so many years ago and gave us years of edge of our seat moments. Through triumph and victory Tim Duncan has won over the city of San Antonio and will forever be one of us.
On behalf of all of us at Davis Law Firm, Thank you Tim Duncan and we wish you well on your next chapter in life.
