Well, this is an interesting development before Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals series between the Spurs and Blazers.
Portland point guard Mo Williams shared the above photo of the snake that was found in power forward Thomas Robinson's locker in San Antonio's AT&T Center.
Robinson sat in his locker, saw something curled up in the corner, did a double take, realized it was a rattler, jumped about 20 feet— Casey Holdahl (@CHold) May 8, 2014

Not surprisingly, Portland head coach Terry Stotts added that this was the first time he has heard of this.
Said Stotts, "It's bizarre to have a venomous snake in your locker room.That sounds like an ABA story."— Dan McCarney (@danmccarneysaen) May 9, 2014
Only time will tell if this was a good-luck symbol or terrible omen.
The Spurs entered the game with a 1-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.
