The San Antonio Spurs’ two-way players showed off their catches as members of the team headed down to the docks for a boat ride.

Living in a bubble for a minimum of five weeks has forced the San Antonio Spurs into a hard-working mindset as a team. We’ve heard quotes from players about how they’re on a mission to prove themselves and play the right way after losing their way earlier in the season. San Antonio Express-News beat reporter Jeff McDonald reported a quote from starting point guard Dejounte Murray that sums up some of that determination:

“I didn’t bring video games or none of that,” Murray said. “I’m here for a business call and that’s it.”

However, basketball can’t dominate all of their time and the Walt Disney World bubble offers up a lot of fun opportunities for the silver and black. Today’s events included a fishing trip and a boating excursion for a select group of the Spurs’ roster.

After a hard workout this morning, a group of Spurs players including Rudy Gay were seen heading out to the water at the Yacht Club Resort where they’ll reside for the duration of this trip. Rudy’s Instagram post came roughly around the same time that San Antonio’s two-way players, rookie guard Quinndary Weatherspoon and sophomore big man Drew Eubanks, posted their catches to their respective Instagram stories.

For as strenuous as it must be for all of these players to be away from their families and friends, they can use this as a launching point. San Antonio’s group has already shown a strong team bond that translates on the court. There seem to be lasting friendships up and down the roster with many of these players having been in the system for a number of years. Learning to play with each other is one hurdle and living with each other is another, but fishing trips with friends will always be a great way for people to build lasting relationships away from their profession.
