Basketball is one of the most reputable and illustrious sports in the United States, and those who are lucky enough to pull on a jersey in the NBA are aware that they defied all odds. With only 30 teams in the United States and five starters for each team, adults rarely fulfill their childhood dreams. It’s even rarer that players leave an impact like Tim Duncan.
Not only did Duncan make it to the NBA, but he also has five rings after victories in 1999, 2003, 2005, 2007, and 2014. Despite a big presence on the court, Tim Duncan lives a quiet and unassuming personal life. Since leaving the NBA, Duncan welcomed a child with his new partner, and he continues to work on the Tim Duncan Foundation.
This program is ubiquitous around San Antonio and offers programs in education, health awareness, sports, and more for young people. During the pandemic, he stepped up for college students and offered to pay their fares to get home.
In terms of his own house, little is known about Tim Duncan’s property other than the fact that he still lives in San Antonio. However, back in 2014, Duncan put his previous house up for sale and it perhaps shows what the basketball great enjoys in a property.
Once he found an experienced realtor in San Antonio, and bought his home in 2005, Duncan spent around $1.25 on the property and stayed for around ten years. In 2014, he eventually put the home up for sale and it hit the market at just under $1 million. Located on Lake Travis, the stunning property covered 2.25 acres and boasted a chef’s kitchen, a double-height living room, and five bedrooms.
Just in case the five bedrooms weren’t enough, the property also had four bathrooms and a beautiful central island in the kitchen. With a stone-like effect on the walls and tall windows, lots of natural light entered the spacious rooms, and this was a theme throughout the home.
Upstairs, Duncan created a game room from one of the spare rooms as well as having a study/office space and other features. In the master bedroom alone, the property had a soaking tub and a two-sided fireplace. For the warmer months, the new owners would enjoy a boat dock and an outdoor fire pit.
In one of the bathrooms, there was a walk-in shower room as well as views overlooking the local area. As you would imagine, the home was set in plenty of land and not many neighbors were nearby. Although not much information is available about Duncan’s current property, you can assume that he has gone for something just as luxurious and just as incredible.
In total, this previous property covered nearly 4,000 square feet and, although news went quiet after the initial report that the property was on the market, it’s likely that the home now has new owners.
Even after leaving the basketball world behind, Duncan hasn’t stopped and now owns BlackJack Speed Shop, a car customization business. Based in San Antonio, Duncan said that the business allows him to show off his flashy side. Although he doesn’t pay too much attention to how he dresses, he can leave the precision of basketball behind and enjoy freedom with nice cars.
In a recent interview with Bleacher Report, he also said that San Antonio is still the right place for him since he enjoys the relaxed vibe and pace. With this, it looks as though Duncan will stay in San Antonio for many years to come!
