Tim Duncan has been dominant in the 2013 postseason thus far and is one of the main reasons the San Antonio Spurs are poised to challenge for another NBA championship. He is averaging 16.2 points and 9.1 rebounds in 12 playoff games against the Lakers, Warriors and Grizzlies. And it appears this may all be happening while dealing with some off-court distractions.
According to the San Antonio Express-News, Duncan and his wife Amy may have recently filed for divorce. A divorce case was filed in a San Antonio court two months ago that includes only the initials A.S.D and T.T.D. Duncan’s middle name is Theodore. To make matters even more curious, a request was reportedly filed last week asking that a legal discovery be postponed until after the Spurs last playoff game.
Either the nation’s biggest Spurs fans have filed for divorce, or Duncan and his wife are splitting. The Express-News also pointed out that the paperwork says the couple married around July 21, 2001, which was when Tim and Amy’s wedding took place. It also says they have two children together, whose birthdays coincide with the dates listed on the divorce filing.
T.T.D., who we assume is Duncan, has asked the court to honor a prenuptial agreement and confirm that he owns property that is separate from the marital estate. A.S.D.’s petition states that the two will “enter into a written agreement for the division of their estate.”
Divorce can be a major distraction, which is why it is even more surprising that Duncan has been able to focus and put the Spurs in a position where they are two wins away from punching a ticket to the NBA Finals. Hopefully Timmy can keep his head on straight for a few more weeks.
