Photo Recap: San Antonio Spurs Season Opener Had Political Statement, H-E-B Commercials and Tim Duncan's Baby 

Sooo, the Spurs season opener had a lot going on. The team (and retired legends Tim Duncan and David Robinson) made a very clear political statement by linking arms and sharing a message encouraging San Antonio to take a stand against social injustice. And we got our first full look at this season's H-E-B commercials. AND Tim Duncan's baby, Quill, made her debut.

If you missed out on the big night, don't worry. The Current (with some help from social media) will fill you in.

"That commonality should include aspirations for social justice, freedom of speech in its many forms, and equal opportunity for education and economic advancement regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or religion. It is our hope that we can, as a community, inspire and evoke real change. We ask that you join with us in your daily lives in the pursuit of equality. And in that, we honor our country by exercising demands for what this great nation has promised and what our military continues to fight for."

In the first H-E-B commercial to come out this season, Spurs players tasted hummus from every Texan's favorite grocery store.

Patty Mills said his chocolate hummus really "awakens the palate." He's so cultured.

Manu Ginobili said his hummus was "very full bodied." So eloquent.

Pau Gasol asks whether the correct plural term is "hummus" or "hummuses." "Na, it stays the same," said Patty Mills. "Like 'moose.'" "Hu-moose," joked Kawhi Leonard.

But perhaps most exciting of all was the debut of Quill Duncan, who was born in March.
