Tim Duncan hits a 3 to win a $100 bet

ALL BALL NERVE CENTERTim Duncan has been in the NBA for almost two decades now, so without getting into too much detail, it’s probably safe to assume that Duncan has grossed a lot of money throughout his career. So for Duncan, a bet with $100 at stake probably isn’t a big deal. At least, the $100 part of it isn’t a big deal. Winning the bet? That might be where the motivation comes from.

Last night during the Spurs/Thunder game, with the Spurs up big and the shot clock running down midway through the third quarter, Duncan had to hoist up a long three-pointer from the corner.

And as Duncan’s girlfriend pointed out on Twitter, there was more to that shot than just beating the buzzer…

    Fahad Khan he got 5 rings and you said he’s the worst NBA player ever? you must be out of your mind

      100% agree, Michael! This guy quietly goes about his business, you don’t hear about him holding out for max contracts, you don’t see papparazi shots of him at the rippers or with illicit drugs in his hand, or driving under the influence. Duncan has been nothing but a SOLID professional, oh and he has some pretty ridiculous stats to boot. You were either being sarcastic, Fahad, or you really just don’t know NBA at all…

    Very cool… makes me think of the real questions: Is this gambling? Precursor to NBA opening up to sports betting? Political statement that Adam wants to make? — What is the difference between this documented instance and a team trying to beat the spread in Vegas?

    …yeah Khan, you make a good point. Give me Harrison Barnes over Duncan any day. You’re smart and say smart things.
