During the NBA Playoffs, the spotlight shines brightest on Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, and Tony Parker. In turn, this attention has stirred the internet to bring to the surface some inspired, anime-style fan art by illustrator Tateno Ayako.

Here are some of my favorites from the batch. See all of them here.
