Tim Duncan Retires and So is This Blog

I never thought this day would come.

Well, that's not entirely true. I always knew that retirement would soon be an option for Tim Duncan. I just never thought that it would be this soon.

My heart breaks as I recall the very first time I watched an NBA game, the conference finals game between the LA Lakers and the San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs lost that game alright, but my liking to the team didn't waver. Soon, season after season, I would watch them play and not one bit I doubted their ability on winning more championships. That's probably because I knew Tim Duncan is there for the team.

So, when I heard that Tim is retiring from the NBA, I -- was sad. But as the news sinks in, I told myself, I shouldn't be sad instead I should be grateful because I was able to watch him play with the San Antonio Spurs for many seasons and understand his greatness, humility, and love of the game. That's why I love Timmy!

I'll definitely miss watching that #21 hugging the ball before every game starts. I'll miss the chemistry of the Big 3, no other "big 3" is as solid as Tim, Manu, and Tony. I'll miss Timmy. Still. Spurs all the way!!

Also, I think it's about time to officially retire this blog.

Have a Happy New Year Everyone!


What a great year ahead of us! :)

The San Antonio Spurs managed to win, 93-71, against their Southwest rival the Dallas Mavericks. Manu Ginobili will be out for at two months due to a fracture on his shooting hand. Get well soon Manu!

Schuhmann on the Spurs

John Schuhmann on the San Antonio Spurs...

Tim Duncan - San Antonio Spurs
Last season was unique in many ways for the Spurs. With a change of pace and a new identity, they became a team that folks in San Antonio might not recognize, even though most of the players in silver and black were plenty familiar.

It's JaggedCore's 4th Year!


I've been wondering when JaggedCore began. So, I looked up for my very first post here and found this.

Reposting Angels..
Angels.. Come as visions, voices, dreams, coincidences, & intuition, the whisper of knowledge at your ear. They come as animals or other people, or as a wash of peace in an ailing heart. Sometimes a stranger may come up & give you just the information or assistance you need. Sometimes you yourself are used as an angel, for a moment, either knowingly or not, speaking words you did not know you knew.
But sometimes these beings come as angels, in the very form that artists show - as beings of light, both with & without wings.
