The Big Fundamental has taken up mixed martial arts and is probably being very sensible about it.
Tim Duncan is one of the ten best NBA players of all time. In his years with the San Antonio Spurs, he won five NBA titles, three Finals MVPs, two league MVPs, and the hearts of youth basketball coaches everywhere for his love of the bank shot. After his retirement, it seemed like Duncan would spend the rest of his days enjoying his car shop and hopefully continuing to pop up in HEB commercials.
But it turns out Tim Duncan is filling the hours in a slightly different way, and it’s a way that has me reconsidering all the “boring” jokes I’ve made about Timmy over the years. He’s getting into MMA fighting. Because the only thing scarier than a 7-foot-tall guy who you’ve always made fun of is a 7-foot-tall guy who you’ve always made fun of who is training to kick people’s asses. Echols Fitness posted a video of the Big Fundamental’s training and kicks look extra terrifying when the legs throwing them are that long.
So as I’ve always said, Tim Duncan is the coolest man in the world. His electric personality is only matched by his sparkling wit. If they actually make Space Jam 2, it should star Tim Duncan as he’s the only athlete with the charisma to pull off the challenge
