The San Antonio community is still trying to get over the thought of a world where Tim Duncan is no longer playing professional basketball.
People should be able to understand their frustrations because the last time that Duncan had not played for the Spurs, Bill Clinton was still President of the United States.
He played for almost 20 years so, much like Los Angeles Lakers fans in their praise of Kobe Bryant in his final year, the fans of The Big Fundamental should be able to show their appreciation.
One McDonald’s franchise in Texas is offering its own distinct tribute to the man that wore number 21. A sign at the drive-thru speaker says: “#ThankYouTD 21 (Not 20) Chicken McNuggets for a limited time.”
Now, we don’t know how many restaurants in the area are participating in this promotion. But, I bet the team’s fans in the area got more than a little kick out of the gesture.
Also, who could pass up so many nuggets, especially when it’s a sale. The sign advertising the product was a plain black basketball shape with white lines. Not only are these the team’s colors, but they are the most emblematic of the Duncan experience.
The power forward would probably approve because of his noted taste for simple things. He was recently photographed in line at an Old Navy clothing store after announcing his retirement.
That picture might be the peak experience of the five-time NBA Champion. He was never one for flash, so it only makes sense that he would shop at the one of the most plain retailers out there.
There are entire websites dedicated to the omnipresent basic style of Duncan throughout his career.
Who knows, maybe Old Man Riverwalk himself will roll through to pick up that crazy amount of chicken pieces. He’s got nothing to lose now, he should enjoy his retirement.
