Watch Shoeless Triqui Indian Boys Beat NBA's San Antonio Spurs [Video]

You may recall a recent post here at ICTMN about the youth team of Triqui Indians who won a tournament in Mexico even though most of them elected not to wear shoes. 

But the opponents that the "shoeless" Triqui boys (also dubbed the "barefoot mice" because of their short stature) faced on Tuesday night were an upgrade over the teams they bested in the six games of the 2013 Champions of the International Festival of Mini-Basketball. The pint-sized cagers from Oaxaca’s Academy of Indigenous Basketball took on the San Antonio Spurs, who had come to Mexico City as part of the NBA Global Games.

The game was played barefoot, which evidently gave the barefoot mice an advantage. They defeated the mighty Spurs 10-4. Let's go to the videotape:

Nice of the Spurs to take time out of their schedule and spent time with these young Native boys. It shows humility on the Spurs part. Awesome!
