Proof Tiago Splitter was a fan of Tim Duncan since he was a teenager

Maybe it was destiny one day Tiago Splitter would be a center for the San Antonio Spurs and here’s the proof.

Like many foreign players who dreamed of proving themselves in the NBA, Splitter was a young, up-and-coming player with Baskonia, honing his skills on the court.

But little did he know, he would one day be winning an NBA title and playing side-by-side with the guy on the poster he had in his room so long ago – Tim Duncan.

Check out a 16-year old Splitter rocking the Duncan basketball poster so long ago which probably will make Duncan feel very old. Talk about destiny coming true!
