Watching the Spurs’ superstars in action can be a surreal experience, but 22 students from Bellaire Elementary were able to take that experience to a whole new level.On November 19, the kids participated in a Spurs/Pizza Hut commercial shoot at the Spurs’ practice facility. They were running, dribbling, passing and shooting right alongside Kawhi Leonard and Tiago Splitter. Three of the students - Anthony Avila (5th), Dominic Herrera (4th), and Adam San Miguel (5th) – also had speaking parts in the commercial.
After the shoot, Coach Greg Popovich invited the students to shoot some hoops while he watched and gave them pointers. Coach Pop even praised a couple of the kids, telling them they may be big stars one day.
