San Antonio's 'Tim Duncan Day' celebration is very Tim Duncan

Many of the city’s inhabitants are spending Thursday celebrating Duncan in various ways. City Hall, for example, has a Tim Duncan banner up, which will apparently stay up until Sunday:

The San Antonio Fire Department spelled out "Tim Duncan Day" with their bodies:

The city’s human services department had a message for Tim Duncan:

If you happen to be in San Antonio on this year’s inaugural Tim Duncan Day, plenty of restaurants are celebrating with discounts, according to, from local joints ...

... to McDonald’s:

In honor of Tim Duncan Day, greater San Antonio area McDonald’s will be selling 21-piece McNuggets boxes instead of boxes with 20 pieces. The offer will be valid from Thursday until July 31.

Here’s the decree Mayor Taylor tweeted on Thursday:
