TD Cut His Salary In Half To Keep The Spurs Together!

Duncan cut his salary in half by signing a three-year, $30 million deal. One year after being the third highest paid player, Duncan knocked himself down to 61st, meaning he made less this year than Richard Hamilton or Hedo Turkoglu.

Duncan has made over $200 million in his 15-year career and a better comparison is between him and Tom Brady. The New England Patriots quarterback signed a similar three-year, $27 million deal this offseason.

Duncan's pay cut was just another low-key, class move by the big man.
