Question: What's your plan after you're done playing basketball? Coaching job with the Spurs maybe?

Tim Duncan: I don't know what I'm going to do after basketball, thus far. I've got a couple more years to play, and I'm more focused on that than worrying about what I've got to do after basketball. I love messing with cars, so I assume I'm going to do something with that at some point.
