While the basketball world was buzzing with news surrounding the addition of James Harden to the Houston Rockets, the San Antonio Spurs were doing something much more important.
Enjoying the Halloween festivities.
For the sake of our enjoyment, let’s run down the list of costumes (left to right) in a hysterical team photo:
Creepy clown: Andrew McNeill of 48 Minutes of Hell thinks it could be Kawhi Leonard though it is essentially impossible to find out. (It would be awesome if someone with inside information unveiled the identity of the creepy clown.)
Mario: Cory Joseph. His costume gets me every time.
Joker No. 1: Tiago Splitter, who is subliminally pleading that we stop taking his career free throw percentage (62.6 percent) so seriously.
Smaller Kick Ass guy: This one is up for debate. Realistically, it could be Gary Neal, Patty Mills or, less likely but still possible, Leonard.
Zoro: Nando De Colo and Manu Ginobili donned the same costume, reaffirming everyone’s suspicion: They really are the same person.
Taller Kick Ass guy: Matt Bonner, who is dorky enough to pull off the costume.
Tony Parker: Notice the eye patch?
The Punisher: Tim Duncan, naturally.
Joker No. 2: Stephen Jackson. If we continue with the De Colo and Ginobili analogy, does this foreshadow the first of many Portuguese rap albums?
Smurf: Boris Diaw. (Please refrain from the obvious fat joke.)
Bonus question: I posed this question to Twitter but I would like more responses. Let’s pretend Gregg Popovich attended the party: Who would he attend as? Feel free to sound off in the comments.
