Photos: Mexico City Special Olympics/Triqui Basketball clinic

While the San Antonio Spurs are still hours away from tipoff of their game in Mexico City against the Minnesota Timberwolves as part of the NBA Global Games, players from both teams participated in a clinic yesterday with 50 local Special Olympics athletes and the Triqui basketball team.

The players played 5-on-5 with the Triqui youth team, as Jeff Garcia wrote about earlier, and Patty Mills decided to go barefoot in a photo joining the young players who recently won the International Festival of Mini-Basketball championship in Argentina by playing barefoot.
