Sometimes, it's just not a good time to get divorced.
That's the problem apparently frustrating four-time NBA champion Tim Duncan, who has reportedly asked a Texas judge to delay divorce proceedings until after his San Antonio Spurs are out of the NBA Playoffs.
A San Antonio Express reporter got a hold of divorce documents on Thursday that detail the Bexar County District Court case of A.S.D. vs. T.T.D.
The court papers detail T.T.D.'s motion, filed on Monday, requesting that the case be delayed until after the date of his team's last playoff game.
According to TMZ, which claimed to have also obtained the divorce documents, Duncan argues that the playoffs are "currently making extraordinary demands on him and hopefully will continue to make those demands for the next 30 or so days."
Amy and Tim Duncan were married in 2001, according to Yahoo! Sports. Amy was a cheerleader at Tim's alma mater, Wake Forest. The couple also have two children together, according to the San Antonio Express.
While lawyers detailed in the documents have not confirmed that they represent the famous couple, local television station KSAT said San Antonio Spurs officials confirmed that the pair were divorcing on Friday. The pair cited "discord and conflict," according to KSAT.
Meanwhile, Duncan and the Spurs currently lead their Western Conference finals series against the Memphis Grizzlies 2-0. Game 3 of the best-of-seven series is scheduled for Saturday. The NBA Finals are scheduled to begin June 6 and conclude on June 20.
