: It appears that Tim Duncan got more important things to worry about than the NBA playoffs. He's in the midst of a messy divorce.
Here's how the San Antonio EXPRESS NEWS is reporting it:
A divorce case filed here two months ago that bears only the initials of the husband and wife has all the hallmarks of being that of Spurs star Tim Duncan and his wife, Amy.
The case is playing out in Bexar County District Court. Court papers filed last week include a request that legal discovery in the case be postponed until after the Spurs' last playoff game.
Efforts to confirm Thursday that the legal proceedings involve Tim Duncan, 37, and Amy, 35, were unsuccessful.
But there are a few other clues in the case that point to the couple:
The style of the case is A.S.D. vs. T.T.D. Tim Duncan's middle name is Theodore.
The petition says the couple married on or about July 21, 2001, which coincides with the date of the Duncans' nuptials.
Two children were born to the parties in the petition: A daughter with the initials S.I.D., born June 27, 2005, and a son, W.D.D., born Aug. 3, 2007.
The Duncans have a daughter, Sydney, who reportedly was born on that date. Their son, Draven, is believed to have been born in 2007, though an exact birth date couldn't be determined.
