After Team Canada recorded a 100-89 win against Slovenia in the quarter-finals of the 2023 FIBA World Cup, Dillon Brooks, who was ejected in the fourth quarter, waited for his teammates in the tunnel after the game with boxing gloves on.

After the game ended, the Sportsnet feed cut to Brooks waiting in the tunnel taking a few practice jabs before playfully switching to the incoming players.
