First, Tiago Splitter faked one way. Then he faked the other.
Out of position and out of options, the player guarding him — that would be 13-time All-Star Tim Duncan — did all he could do. He fouled, sending Splitter to the line.
Moments later in the Spurs' intrasquad scrimmage/big-man duel Monday, Duncan unleashed his revenge, elevating over Splitter and dunking on his Brazilian head.
It took another day, but Splitter was eventually able to get the last laugh.
"I wanted to make him look younger," Splitter said jokingly after Tuesday's practice. "That's why I let him dunk on me."
Splitter just may have last laugh on everyone
