To most basketball fans this is a picture of Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle posing with his opposite number for tonight’s game, Barcelona’s head coach Xavi Pascual.

But have mistaken Pascual, who has led Barcelona to the Euroleague title in 2010 as well as a Final Four appearance in 2012 as a fan posing with the 2011 NBA title winning coach.


"Rick Carlisle of the Dallas Mavericks poses for a portrait with a fan 
during practice at Palau Blaugrana during NBA Europe Live 2012 on
October 8, 2012 in Barcelona, Spain."

It’s photo 22 out of 23. Whoops.
