Nets assistant Tiago Splitter reacts to being added to Classic Team in NBA 2K20


Former San Antonio Spurs big man Tiago Splitter, who’s now an assistant coach for the Brooklyn Nets, is pumped about his addition to one of the classic teams in NBA 2K20.

Via Twitter, Splitter said that he’s about to ‘get buckets’ on the latest version of 2k. The video game announced that the 2013-2014 Spurs, who beat the powerhouse Miami Heat squad to win the title, will be one of their classic teams.

During that season, Splitter became a key part of the Spurs’ championship campaign. He played in 59 regular-season games (50 starts) and averaged 8.2 points, 6.2 rebounds, 1.5 assists across 21.5 minutes. Along the way, he helped his team reach 62 wins for first place in the Western Conference.

Come playoff time, the Brazilian suited up for 23 games (18 starts) and averaged 7.5 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 2.0 assists across 22.4 minutes.

He was the team’s utility guy — someone who’s willing to do everything and anything for the team. Under Popovich’s system, Splitter had to man the paint together with legendary forward Tim Duncan, run pick-and-rolls with the nifty Tony Parker, and match the defensive intensity of then-rising star Kawhi Leonard.

He succeeded in all the tasks assigned to him and the result: a championship ring as well as a place in history as a member of one of the best teams in the NBA.
