On the morning after a very satisfying road win over the Wizards, it would seem that based on Patty Mills’ Instagram, newest Spur Donatas Motiejunas has been quickly indoctrinated into the famous Coffee Gang.
I find it fascinating that our Coffee Gang (hey — is that Derrick White lurking in the background?) could pass as Rhodes Scholars, your local entrepreneurs, or simply one of the up-and-coming young rotations in future years. Formed by Mills, it has also been an amazing form of camaraderie for a team with so many new faces this season.
“It’s something we can do as a team and enjoy each other’s company and not take all day,” he said. “Guys learn about each other and have coffee, hot chocolates, tea, whatever it may be. And doing that in different places in a city, that’s the cool experience.”
The fact that their newest teammate was right there with them the very first full day he spent with the Spurs tells you all you need to know about this team off the court. I hope you are as excited as I am to see how Donatas can contribute to our playoff push and into the first round!
