Winner: Spurs Jesus or

Nothing trumpets a celebrity's arrival in the big time more than becoming a go-to Halloween costume. And who among us hasn't had at least one Spurs Jesus ring the doorbell at trick-or-treat time? Part of Spurs Jesus' enduring popularity comes down to his skill at walking a fine line with his schtick. It's edgy, maybe even a little irreverent, but he's never stooped to being crass. After all, this is the guy who's posed for photos with smiling nuns and with famously straight-laced former Spur David Robinson. It's also easy to cheer for a local celebrity who's (at least publicly) strived to live up to his spiritual inspiration. In recent years, Spurs Jesus has run in the San Antonio AIDS Foundation's 5K wearing full biblical regalia, promoted local pet adoptions and marketed Robert Tatum-designed charity t-shirts. Perhaps most admirably, he even carried a sign urging us all to forgive L.A. Lakers fans.
