Last night’s NBA Finals halftime show, featuring Danny Green and Tim Duncan’s children, felt a lot like that.

Green gave an interview with Doris Burke at halftime, then ran off at a near-gallop to the locker room. On his way there, he almost tripped over a small, seemingly unattended child:

Danny Green… almost had his life ended when a CHILD NINJA appeared from out of nowhere and almost took him out. I don’t know why there is a child ninja roaming the halls of the AT&T Center, but he’s there, and you’ll never see him coming.

That’s a totally reasonable analysis of the situation, child ninja joke aside. When I saw it live, I thought, “Daww, that was cute, Danny Green almost ran a child over, and then waved at those other kids too.”

LITTLE DID WE KNOW: The source of that near-tragic (but mostly cute) moment was none other than Tim Duncan, having an even cuter Fathers Day moment with his children… including that very same same ninja-kid:
