San Antonio Spurs basketball star Tim Duncan is reportedly in the midst of a divorce.

According to a report from a local San Antonio news station, Duncan and his wife Amy are getting divorced after 13 years of marriage. The couple share two young children, one daughter and one son. The couple were reportedly trying to keep the divorce quiet by using their initials in court documents.

The Spurs organization has stated that Duncan’s divorce will not affect the team or the NBA playoffs.

A TMZ report has also cited court documents that state Duncan has requested the divorce proceedings be postponed until after after the NBA playoffs, which the Spurs stand a chance of winning. The report also shows that the divorce was filed by Duncan’s wife, who claims the marriage is full of “discord and conflict.” The couple allegedly has a prenuptial agreement that Duncan is attempting to enforce.

    I’m sorry that people in professional sports and actors can’t have the privacy that ordiary people like myself can unless I commit some outlandish crime. Right now I’m about 6,000.00 dollars in debt and electric has just been turned off, not because I’m living a lavish life but because my $958.00 dollar disability check can’t pay it all. I know the media thrive on them but please let them be able to keep their dignity and have some privacy. Tim Duncan is a private person, you can tell by the way he carries himself. I admire him because he is not a media seeker.
