HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS – Who says the San Antonio Spurs are a crusty old bunch?
Not us. Not when it becomes clear that the NBA’s best team is filled with guys that are on the cutting edge of fashion, pop culture, music and entertainment.
You don’t believe it?
Fine. Show us another crew that turns a Lady Gaga concert into a team outing … as the Spurs did the other night.
Several Spurs forgot about their disappointing performance in Miami with a respite from basketball after returning back to San Antonio the following night.
Spurs guard Tony Parker said about half of his team attended the Lady Gaga concert Tuesday night at the AT&T Center. Parker posted several pictures of the concert at his Facebook account. And Manu Ginobili uploaded several pictures on his Plixi account of the headliner.
“It was great. She’s a great performer,” Parker said of the concert. “She did great. I like her stuff.”
Ginobili didn’t talk to the media Wednesday as he recovered from a sore throat that was noticeable after the Miami game. But Parker said he couldn’t tell if Ginobili was screaming during the show.
“I don’t know,” Parker said. “He was sitting in front of me. I don’t know if he was screaming. But he was moving his head. I could see that.”
Eldest Spur Antonio McDyess was one of those who didn’t attend.
“Maybe the young guys were there, but not me,” McDyess said, chuckling. “I don’t know one of her songs.”
We didn’t say they were all cool!
