For many young athletes growing up, they have dreams about making the cover of Sports Illustrated and recently, San Antonio Spurs center Tiago Splitter got the chance to grace the cover.
The cover featured Kawhi Leonard skying for a dunk over Miami’s Chris “Birdman” Andersen during game four of the 2014 NBA Finals.
Tiago is standing the middle of the play with his back turned and below is his reaction to seeing the cover on his official Twitter account:
