SAN ANTONIO – Comedy relief is exactly what fans need after learning that San Antonio Spurs’ point guard Tony Parker will miss the rest of the postseason because of a major injury.
“Spurs Special Forces,” a YouTube series created by comedy writer and UCLA economics professor Matt Hill, provides that much-needed escape.
The web series follows the animated exploits of star Spurs players as a commando unit who escaped from prison and "went undercover, hiding in plain sight as the most boring team in professional sports."
The Spurs, known in the series as "Secret People Undercover as Rad Sportsplayers," tackle crime and issues associated with the NBA.
In the fifth installment, Golden State Warriors head coach and former Spur Steve Kerr calls on the group to help put a “bomb in LeBron” James.
In the video, Warriors stars Draymond Green, Klay Thompson and Kerr receive a message from an unknown source saying that he “put a bomb in Steph Curry (that) goes off if he ever raises his hands above his head.”
Uncertain how Curry can use his natural ability to score three-pointers, Green asks Kerr: “How are we supposed to beat the Rockets without Steph … or what if it’s the Spurs?”
The new episode shows a retired Tim Duncan showing off his “kite karate skills,” Kawhi Leonard as Coach Pop’s “trusty robot” and a secret society of ex-players that includes Hall-of-Famers Shaquille O’Neal and Charles Barkley.
