We re about to discuss Tim Duncan finding his arms for the first time ever. So if you re not down with T.D.E. (Tim Duncan s Extremities) it s time for you to bounce.
That being said Tim Duncan discovered his arms on Saturday night. It was a moment of sublime Duncan ness that one person noticed and chose to give back to the world where Deadspin picked it up.
Duncan was sitting on the sideline doing strange Duncan things during Game 3 against the Grizzlies when creeping Jehoshaphat Arms Basil What are these
One viewer noticed the revelatory moment and uploaded the footage with the title Tim Duncan Realizing He Has Arms thus adding yet another delicious layer to Duncan s bone deep goofiness.
The footage is pure spun gold. Duncan who d finished the game and was sitting on the bench with his killer stat line on full display begins brushing his arms with a towel only to start gawking at them as if he had been expecting crab pincers instead of man arms and opposable thumbs.
The same appendages he d used all night to help build the Spurs a 104 93 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies were a mystery. One that he accepted with a shrug that said Welp guess I m a person.
Not to rain the parade or suggest that the video can t plausibly be a 37 year old man noticing his limbs for the first time but perhaps the towel was covered in cat dander. Nothing is worse than sitting in cat dander except perhaps sitting in experimental hair plugs.
I m looking at you Manu Ginobili.
