Photo: Aron Baynes’ mantelpiece is strong with the dark side of the Force


We take a break from the Tracy McGrady-Spurs news to bring you this nerd-tastic photo.

When San Antonio Spurs fans learned of big man Aron Baynes heading to the Spurs, the Internet blew up with references between his last name and of "Bane," the villain of Batman lore. Some fans even photoshopped the famous Bane mask on Baynes' face but it seems he might prefer another villain's mask.

Baynes showed off his new mantelpiece which combines a Spurs team cap with, wait for it, a mask of Star Wars villain Darth Vader!

Check out the epic photo of what might be considered the most awesome mantelpiece ever!

Now let's see some photoshopping of Baynes with a Vader mask Spurs fans.
