The Portland Trail Blazers found a surprise when they arrived in the visitors locker room at the AT&T Center before Thursday night’s 114-97 loss in Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals against the San Antonio Spurs.
Reserve forward Thomas Robinson discovered a snake in his locker a couple of hours before tip-off, spotting it when he placed his shoes in the cubby.
“I was scared,” said Robinson, who added that he’d only seen snakes on Discovery Channel before. “I ain’t gonna lie, I was scared.”
Robinson reacted by screaming and leaping “about five feet high and 20 feet back.”
