After being eliminated from the playoffs, Tim Duncan’s future in the NBA is uncertain and as this point, as he has not made a decision about retirement yet. In honor of Duncan’s legacy, Draymond Green recently wrote in his diary for The Undefeated about his experiences playing against Old Man Riverwalk. Draymond is known for trash talking on the court at times and he revealed how it went the first time he tried it with Tim Duncan.

“My rookie year I kind of talked junk to everybody. In the middle of the game I started talking to Tim, and I had already got into it with somebody on their team. I don’t remember who it was. But I started talking to Tim and he kind of just stared at me. I just kept talking junk to him and he kept staring at me.

At that point I realized during the rest of my career that I might as well not talk to him. Either, one, he is not going to talk back because he has no respect for me. Or, two, he is not going to talk back because that is who he is. Or, three, both. I figured then that was the last time I would talk junk to Tim. And that was the last time.”
