Tim Duncan expands knee brace collection

By Lang Whitaker, NBA.com

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — I guess the thinking goes, if you have to wear a knee brace, at least make sure it’s something cool. This appears to be what Tim Duncan has believed, possibly for a while now. Last year during the Finals, people noticed that Duncan had several choices in knee wear, including a Punisher-themed brace.

(We should note that because Duncan usually wears a sleeve over the brace, we can’t tell which brace he’s wearing in games.)

Yesterday before the Spurs beat Dallas in Game 7 of their series, my main man George Kiel III tweeted a photo of Duncan’s current brace selection. Perhaps in honor of The Amazing Spider Man 2, Duncan appears to have added a Spidey Deadpool brace to his arsenal…

    That is not Spiderman, it´s Deadpool.

  2. JD says:

    Hmm interesting, the robot seems to be showing signs of a personality.

  7. None Of The Above says:

    I like these. Does Lang or anyone else know who did the design work on these? He could auction them off for charity when he retires.

  8. Does Duncan read comics? Never leave an NBA head to write on comic matters! Rookie mistake! smh

  9. Raw says:

    Knee braces suck the spider man design sucks.
