Well, this is as good a reason as any to start skateboarding again. In a genius stroke of local marketing, Alta Vista Skateshop crafted San Antonio Spurs skateboard decks. I'd almost feel bad to put trucks right over LaMarcus Aldridge's gametime smile. The decks of players on the current roster go for $50, but if you're on a budget or have a deep love for the Detroit-bound Boban Marjanović, former Spurs boards sell for $35.

These Spurs skate decks offer an interesting ethical question for the skating Spurs fanbase: are you a better fan if you hang one up on the wall for posterity or to put the thing to its intended use, boardsliding on Kawhi Leonard's game face? I want to ignore this underlying knee pain and woefully bad balance to find out.
