The San Antonio ZOO

When discussing the pros and cons of playing basketball you would argue one of the advantages of indoor sports is you control the environment you play in much better. Well, you may need to add an exception to that argument…

In the 2013-2014 playoffs, the Blazers found a snake in their locker room. As Mo Williams tweeted later ‘’We get in the locker room n its a damn snake, yea a snake in the locker room. Man, we were scared as hell’’. The snake was caught and released back into the wild.

On Halloween 2009 Manu Ginobili swatted a bat who had flown on to the court and then carried it off the court. As later reported, bats are not an uncommon thing in the AT&T Center in San Antonio. Ginobili later had to get a rabies shot as a preventive measure.

So playing in San Antonio has many advantages, you will play in a team-oriented system for possibly the best coach ever. Just make sure to check if your healthcare covers illness caused by animals.
