Tim Duncan continuing to put up shots in an empty gym is proof he’s a basketball robot

Tuesday November 8th, 2016

Poor Tim Duncan doesn’t know what to do with himself now that he’s retired. 

The 40-year-old future Hall of Famer hung it up in July but he keeps showing up a Spurs practice. He was there during training camp and returned again on Monday. 

He didn’t need to be there, of course, but it’s out of his control. Duncan is clearly a cyborg whose programming compels him to go the training facility and put up shots until no one else is left in the gym.

Hopefully the developers work out this bug when Retirement Timmy 2.0 is released later this year.
