Tim Duncan has a big decision to make in the coming weeks. Should he stay? Or should he go? If he decides to hang up his sneakers for good, you can't really blame him. But if he decides to come back for one more run at the Larry O'Brien trophy, it'd be hard to say he's crazy.

Pop has pretty much come out and said that he'll be back next season. If he weren't coming back, you can almost guarantee it would be Duncan return deal-breaker. The Spurs success starts with Pop being on the sidelines.

Boris Diaw and Patty Mills are the two best Spurs players set to hit the free agent market this summer. The safe bet is that Diaw returns, but Mills could be lost to a team willing to give him starter minutes. All in all, the nucleus of the Spurs 2014 championship team will be back in 2015.

Name another team that's better than San Antonio top-to-bottom. You can't. The Spurs are far and away the best team in the NBA right now, and one more season is unlikely to change that. Even without Duncan you have to like their chances of getting back to the WCF. With Duncan, another run to the Finals seems easily attainable. That's of course if his minutes are heavily monitored during the regular season.
