Video: Tim Duncan Shares Some of His Off-Court Passions

When the average San Antonio Spurs’ fan thinks bout Tim Duncan the words "stoic" and "even keeled" come to mind, but as the old saying goes, don’t judge a book by its cover.

During the following interview with former teammate Fabricio Oberto on Oberto's new talk show, Duncan shared a few things that most people didn’t know about him.

While fans of Project Spurs were aware of Duncan’s recent training with boxer Jesse James Leija but his recent endeavor in to the Muy Thai training is something that was a new revelation.  As was Oberto’s comment bout his stopping after seeing how big the guys were in jiu jitsu training.

The most unexpected tidbit was about Duncan’s passion for speed and the  auto performance shop that he has opened up.  He has worked on the cars of teammates such as Boris Diaw, Patty Mills and Tony Parker.  He even showed his Camaro and his 1968 Camaro that had 1000 horse power engine that he had replaced. This information was shared along with his love of motor cycles.

Duncan stated with the end of his playing career approaching, this business was a vessel to fill that void that will be created after retirement. 

So Spurs’ fans, how would like to get your car fixed up at Duncan’s motor shop?
