Caleb Saenz of the Spurs blog 48 Minutes of Hell put together the pitch perfect clip, highlighting the team’s current roster as it prepares to tip off the coming season.

While the video does not make one-to-one comparisons of players to characters on the long-running show, it is pretty obvious that Tim Duncan is Sam Malone, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili are Cliff and Norm, respectively, and Boris Diaw is Frasier Crane.
