Someone created a brilliant fake Tim Duncan LinkedIn account

Tim Duncan's NBA career is over after 19 impressive years with the San Antonio Spurs that yielded five championships. His decision to call it a day was not even greeted with a press conference as the greatest power forward of all time decided to fade into history without too much fuss.

The next step of his career is not clear to many. The Spurs legend was spotted queuing in Old Navy recently in typical Duncan fashion, but nobody really knows what Timmy D is up to, and that's the way he would like it.

One fan went the extra mile recently and created a fake LinkedIn page for the 40-year-old, and some of the content is golden.

The account has since been deleted from the business-oriented social networking service, but while it lasted, it could have had people believing it was the real thing.

The bio read: "An accomplished professional with a proven track record in the highly competitive sports industry. Would describe myself as a hardworking team player with strong leadership skills. Proficient in Microsoft Word and Excel."

The description of his time with the Spurs was also brilliant, you can see it below but the responsibilities included 'engaging the locker room in Socratic Dialogue' and 'scoring in the high and low post against a wide array of competitors'.

It's the little things that bring the most joy, and to basketball fans, it was a brilliant way to capture the personality of a legend.

Future Spurs

Without Duncan for the first time since 1997, the future looks very different for the Spurs. Having fallen in the semi-finals to the Oklahoma City Thunder in a thoroughly underwhelming end to the season, they will be hoping to stay competitive in the packed Western Conference.

Pau Gasol and David Lee have been acquired for experience in the front court but whether their additions live up to Golden State's, only time will tell.
