With the Spurs being eliminated Thursday in Game 6 of the Western Conference Semifinals against the Thunder, many are speculating that Tim Duncan could retire. But he isn't the only San Antonio veteran that could hang it up this season.
According to ESPN's Marc Spears, Andre Miller – the oldest active NBA player at 40 years old and Duncan's elder by a month – is contemplating ending his career.
Spurs guard Andre Miller, 40, told @TheUndefeated he has strongly considered retiring but right now he is undecided after his 17th season.

Should Miller retire, he'll end his career as possibly the best player never to be named an All-Star; his career numbers of 16,278 points, 8,524 assists, and 1,524 steals are the most for any player without an All-Star appearance.
In 10 of Miller's 17 NBA seasons, he never missed a game. However, this year he only saw action in 39 games and contributed a slim 3.7 points and 2.2 assists per game as the third-string point guard.
