Tim Duncan's decision anything but easy

Bill Simmons writes that it's tempting for Duncan to retire: "Leave people saying, 'Keep playing! You’re still good at this!' ... Leave knowing that, by any calculation, you were one of the best two-way players ever and one of the most beloved teammates ever." Is it too soon?
