Five-time NBA champion Tim Duncan eventually will retire, but San Antonio Spurs teammate Tony Parker doesn't expect it to happen just yet.

"It will come to an end, but I don't think next year," Parker told reporters after the Spurs beat the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals for their fifth championship in 15 seasons. "I think everybody's gonna come back."

Parker thinks his longtime teammate again will join Manu Ginobili, Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard and himself as they try to defend their title.

Spurs owner Peter Holt agrees with Parker's assumptions.

"Tim and Manu are going to play until they die, so I think we are in pretty good shape," Holt told reporters, according to the San Antonio Express-News. "Tim and Manu want to play until they die, somewhat sincerely, actually."
