Tim Duncan isn't ready to call it a career just yet.

The future Hall-of-Famer talked about when he'll be ready to hang it up during Wednesday's media day of the NBA Finals, saying he's "not come to that point yet."

Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today Sports tweeted the brief statement Duncan gave:

"I’ve not come to that point yet. ...It’ll happen when it happens. I’ll feel it, I’ll know it and I’ll call it a day."

The statement is status quo from one of the most monotone players in the history of sports.Earlier in 2014, former Nuggets head coach and current NBA analyst George Karl said he heard "whispers" this would be Duncan's final season. Karl had said at the time that he received a number of phone calls recently — including one from an official with San Antonio — that said the 38-year-old four-time MVP is thinking about hanging it up after the current season.

Selected first overall by the Spurs in the 1997 draft, Duncan has career averages of 20 points, 11.2 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 2.2 blocks per game.

The Spurs face the Heat in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night in San Antonio. Miami split the regular season series with San Antonio 1-1.
