Dario Saric’s game-sealing block on Pau Gasol is already a t-shirt

Tuesday August 9th, 2016

Dario Saric’s block on Pau Gasol to seal Croatia’s 72–70 upset win over Spain on Sunday has already been immortalized on a shirt.

A Pennsylvania-based company called “Optionalitees” has created a red shirt with Saric’s silhouette on the front, and his last name in big bolded letters. It’s sure to be a hit with Sixers fans in the state.

The shirt is available online for the low price of $14. Here’s what it looks like:

Saric, a first-round pick of the Sixers in 2014, rose up in the closing seconds of the game to deny Gasol, a star power forward, the chance to tie the game at the rim.

Spain was a medal favorite entering the Games, while Croatia needed to win last month’s Olympic qualifying tournament to secure a spot in the field. 

Saric will be heading to join the Sixers this season after spending the last two seasons in Turkey.
