For years, Tim Duncan's fandom and connection to Marvel character The Punisher has been limited to the design of his knee brace, but now Duncan will actually get to step inside the Marvel universe.

According to a Facebook post from Duncan's auto shop, The Big Fundamental will appear in a special release of The Punisher.

Note the mechanic's name tag and the not so subtle championship ring.
