San Antonio Spurs have no idea about Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili's plans

Published 1 Comments

The San Antonio Spurs saw their campaign come to an end on Thursday at the hands of the Oklahoma City Thunder as they lost 4-2 in a disappointing finale to what had been a record-breaking regular season.

They were emphatically blown out at the Chesapeake Energy Arena as Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook booked their place in the Western Conference Finals for a matchup against Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.

Much of the talk after the game six loss was on the futures of legendary duo Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili.

Both players are reaching the twilight of their respective careers and it was rumoured the defeat could be their final performance in the famous grey and black .

Speaking to on Friday, a day after the season-ending loss, head coach Gregg Popovich said he had no idea what the pair, who are 40 and 38 respectively, are planning to do.

He said: "I really don't know what they're going to do. But when they do decide to move on, sometime between now and the next five years - that's a little bit of a joke - it will feel a little differently walking into the gym."

They would have loved the fairytale ending of going out on top, but do they have the desire to come back for one more season and give it another shot?
