Been an up and down year for Tim Duncan.

While the big man helped the Spurs return to the NBA Finals, they did ultimately lose to the Miami Heat. While Duncan's team raced through the playoff odyssey, he was also in the midst of a divorce from wife Amy Duncan. Despite a rough spring for the center, Tim Duncan's girlfriend Vanessa Macias seems to indicate that he's bouncing back in a nice way.

Vanessa Macias is known to many of the readers from her stint on The Amazing Race. She has been seen sitting in the wives section at Spurs games all season, and has been linked to Duncan since. Macias is well known throughout San Antonio, formerly as a co-host for KCYY morning show in addition to her Amazing Race 4th place finish. She is also the in house announcer and emcee for both the San Antonio Missions minor league baseball team and San Antonio Scorpions Soccer games.

So Gary Neal had himself a game, huh?

The not quite yet household name Neal helped dismantle the Miami Heat in game 3 of the 2013 NBA Championships with an epic performance from behind the arc. Cheering from the crowd was surely Gary Neal's wife Leah Neal.

Gary and Leah Neal were married in Neal's hometown of Baltimore in July of 2010 after having dated for years before hand. According to her Twitter bio, Leah Neal is a "Commercial Real Estate/Environmental Attorney licensed in PA." The couple had their first child in September of 2011, a son named Nes.

The picturesque, happy family has been a long journey for Neal. After his sophomore year, Neal was dismissed from the La Salle basketball team after being accused of rape by a member of the University of New Haven women's basketball team. Neal was acquitted of those charges, but wound up transferring to Towson where he was forced to walk on to the basketball team pending the outcome of his rape case. Neal didn't see a scholarship again until his senior year of college, and while projected as a fringe NBA draft prospect, went undrafted in 2007. Neal traveled Europe as a pro, with stops in Turkey, Barcelona, Italy, and Spain (again) before finally getting the call from the International friendly Spurs in 2010. The journey didn't end last night for Neal, but it certainly had to be the highlight.

Tiago Splitter's wife Amaia Splitter dawned a white dress on July 3rd, 2010 and joined her husband at the altar. Presumably Tiago met the former Amaia Amescua Vitoria while Splitter was playing in Spain, as her hometown is Victoria, Spain. Their first child (son Benjamin) was born in August 2012.

If the Spurs dynasty run is to continue, one of the pieces they will have to replace sooner than later is Tim Duncan. Timmy's minutes are way down as the team tries to keep him fresh for the playoffs. Which great foresight, San Antonio just might have drafted Duncan's heir apparent when the took a flyer on Tiago Splitter.

Here was a lot of buzz surrounding Splitter when it was assumed he would declare for the 2006 draft. He ended up passing as teams were leery of the buyout price to free him from his Spanish league team. Flash forward to 2007, when the Spurs took him at the end of the 1st round. And then they waited. And waited some more. He finally signed a contract during the summer of 2010 to bring him state side and into the Spurs lineup.
