Hawks rookie Taurean Prince grew up in San Antonio and said of getting to watch Tim Duncan: "It was amazing. He did a lot for our city, brought a lot of good things to our city, championships. Not only him, Tony Parker, [Manu] Ginobili, Malik Rose who's here with us [as a coach at Summer League], Bruce Bowen, all those guys who've done things for our city. Timmy was just that cherry on top. It was just a great thing to witness growing up."
