This NBA hiatus has helped fans discover new things. They had the chance to witness Michael Jordan's greatness in 'The Last Dance' from April through May, but that's not the only thing they've discovered during this time.

Twitter account 'ThunderCounty' provided us one of the most mind-blowing facts in NBA history. In case somebody forgot, they reminded everybody that San Antonio Spurs legend Tim Duncan and LeBron James are the same age. Yes, that's right.

TC posted this joke on Twitter and it went viral, racking up over 5k retweets and 28k likes in two days. A lot of people fell for it, with some even googling to see if it was true. TD retired in 2016 at the age of 40. He spent 19 years in the league, all of them with the Spurs, where he won 5 NBA championships and two MVP awards among others.

On the other hand, Bron is 35 and is currently playing his 17th season in the league. He's played for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Miami Heat and the Los Angeles Lakers, his current team.

It was all a joke, but there is no doubt it makes you think and doubt about what you really know of the NBA and the players.
