Photos show dad and son at Duncan's debut, jersey retirement

SAN ANTONIO (AP) A San Antonio Spurs fan's Facebook post featuring side-by-side pictures of him and his son at Tim Duncan's first game and the one Sunday night in which Duncan had his jersey retired is a testament to the legendary big man's longevity.

David Fernandez posted a picture showing him holding his baby son that he says was taken on Nov. 1, 1997, Duncan's first game. Under it, he posted one from Sunday's Spurs game, with him now sporting gray hair and his son donning a beard and a leather jacket.

KENS-TV reports ( Fernandez is an executive and trumpet player with the San Antonio Wind Symphony.

Duncan won five NBA titles and two MVPs in his 19 years with San Antonio.
