Don’t mess with Mark Henry’s Spurs.
I don’t want to call the Spurs copycats, but after seeing the Grizzlies’ mascot attempt to drive a “Spurs fan” through a table in Memphis, the Spurs clearly thought it would be a good idea to work a pro wrestling angle into their games back in San Antonio.
Wednesday night’s game, with the Spurs seeking revenge for their embarrassing Game 1 blowout against the Rockets, was the perfect opportunity. Enter Mark Henry, and an imposter Rockets mascot.
This is obviously what spurred San Antonio to a 121–96 victory, but it would have been even more of a blowout if Henry had hit Clutch with the “World’s Strongest Slam.”
