Lonnie Walker IV, Marco Belinelli added to Spurs’ Southside mural
A local artist from San Antonio decided to pay homage to two more players of the San Antonio Spurs by adding their respective images to a larger-than-life mural in the city. Marco Belinelli and Lonnie Walker IV were both recently immortalized in the Southside mural that features numerous other Spurs, and the finished product looks absolutely amazing.
Graffiti artist Nik Soupe is the man behind these very impressive pieces of art, and both images were shared by renowned Southside restaurant, Rudy’s Seafood:
A lot of time and effort were put into the creation of this marvelous artwork, and it does seem that Soupe’s hard work and dedication have paid off.
Belinelli, 33, was a serviceable member of the Spurs squad last season, as the veteran put up 10.5 points (on 41.3 percent shooting), 2.5 rebounds, and 1.7 assists in 23.0 minutes off the bench. The sharpshooting wing also connected on 1.9 3-pointers per contest on a 37.2 percent clip, as he served as a legitimate marksman for head coach Gregg Popovich’s second unit.
For his part, Walker was not really able to get things going in his rookie year with the Spurs last season. The 20-year-old shooting guard was out for the majority of his rookie campaign with an injury, as the former 18th overall pick was only able to suit up for a grand total of 17 games last season.
Nonetheless, the Spurs still consider Walker a highly promising prospect, and the former University of Miami standout is expected to have a big sophomore year for San Antonio in the coming season.
