Former San Antonio Spur, Tim Duncan and longtime girlfriend, Vanessa Macias, welcomed a baby girl named, Quill.
In an interview with the “Road Trippin’” podcast hosted by Cleveland Cavalier teammates, Channing Frye and Richard Jefferson, the recently retired NBA athlete revealed that he and Macias named the new addition to their family after Guardians of the Galaxy character, Peter Quill aka Star Lord.
Macias confirmed the news with this tweet earlier today:
Quite the interesting name selection from the future hall of famer who spent his entire NBA career with the Spurs organization.
Duncan has two other children, named Sydney and Draven- which makes me wonder if Draven was named after Eric Draven of The Crow.
It’s nice to see that Mr. Duncan seems to be a geek like the rest of us. We’re digging the ode to Star Lord.
Congratulations to both Tim and Vanessa on their new bundle of joy!
