Spurs-Thunder Q&A: Andre Roberson talks about playing back in San Antonio

It definitely is. Living my lifelong dream.

When you were dreaming the NBA dream as a kid, were you picturing yourself in black and silver, being a Spur?

Nah, I wasn’t a Spurs fan, to be honest. I just wanted to be in the NBA and play for a team. I grew up watching the Spurs a lot.

How could you not?

Yeah, how could you not? So, it’s pretty cool playing against them.

Everyone in San Antonio seems to be a big Spurs fan. How were you not?

I was just a fan of basketball, a fan of the NBA. Just growing up having a passion for it, I liked the Spurs but I looked at the overall perspective of it.

So, being back home, lots of family and friends coming to these games?

Definitely, definitely. My whole family is going to be there. A couple of my friends. A lot of my high school friends, they bought ticket. There’s going to be a lot of them.
