NBA players like to go all out for Halloween. Sometimes, maybe too into it? Look at the pic above and tell me you wouldn’t freak out. That’s LeBron James as Pennywise from It. That is frightening.
Here’s some more fright. Stephen Curry went as Jigsaw from the Saw movie series.

For some not-so-scary outfits, here are the Utah Jazz players doing their thing:
Trick or treat! 🎃🎃🎃

Rudy Gobert was maybe an Egyptian god or the Scorpion King, Raul Neto was a Viking, and the always adorable Ricky Rubio was Luigi!
I don’t watch Game of Thrones (sorry!) but Carmelo Anthony was the Night King for Halloween.

Not to be outdone, Russell Westbrook and Nick Collison (along with their wives) did the White Men Can’t Jump ensemble.

While Karl-Anthony Towns couldn’t dress up on the court, his shoes were something else.

As for me? I don’t usually dress up for Halloween. But if I had ONE choice, I would want to go as terrifying Pierre the Pelican. I’m still disappointed he had to “go through surgery.”
*We’ve talked about “turning on the switch” for some really good teams that are struggling. Well, the Warriors did just that against the Clippers. They must really dislike the Clips for that treatment.
*Boston has won five straight. People questioned their defense, especially since they lost Avery Bradley and defensive liability Kyrie Irving but they are second overall in defensive rating. They’re only allowing 94.9 points per 100 possessions. Stingy.
*Meanwhile, the lack of Kawhi Leonard is beginning to be felt as the Spurs (the MIGHTY Spurs) have lost three straight. He can’t come back soon enough for San Antonio.
*How about those Raptors holding the Blazers to SIX measly points in the second quarter? Yikes.
