While Tim Duncan refused to offer any clues about his future after winning his fifth NBA championship on Sunday, everyone around the San Antonio Spurs seems to expect he will be back.

"Tim and Manu [Ginobili] are going to play until they die, so I think we are in pretty good shape," Spurs owner Peter Holt said, via the San Antonio Express-News' Dan McCarney. "Tim and Manu want to play until they die, somewhat sincerely, actually."

Ginobili had already stated that he'll return, and Tony Parker added that he thinks "everybody's gonna come back." 

The 38-year-old Duncan averaged 15.4 points, 10 rebounds and two assists against the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals, shooting 56.9 percent from the field and playing excellent interior defense. He is certainly still effective enough to help San Antonio defend its title.
