Following a hard foul on teammate Tony Parker, Tim Duncan took the law into his own hands and made a citizen’s arrest.
“This kind of thing doesn’t fly around these parts,” said Duncan, taking the offending player into custody. “Now, we can do this the easy way or the hard way, but either way you’re coming with me.”
The Spurs center was then seen leading the perpetrator of the foul toward the tunnel and out of sight. Duncan reportedly turned his prisoner over to the proper basketball authorities to await due process.
“I think everyone can feel safer knowing Timmy is out there patrolling the courts,” said Spurs coach Gregg Popovich. “An action like the one we saw tonight strikes fear into the hearts of wrongdoers across the league and sends a message that just because the refs didn’t see a foul, that doesn’t make it okay.”
When asked during a post-game interview about his special brand of homemade justice, Duncan was adamant that bad basketball behavior wouldn’t be tolerated, at least “not on [his] watch.”
