Spurs' Tim Duncan and Tony Parker Point Fake Guns at Fake Joey Crawford

San Antonio Spurs, probably one of the dreariest team ever in the NBA, is now one of the most controversial.

Duncan and Parker Point Guns at Fake NBA Referee in Leaked Halloween Photo

A few days after Gregg Popovich decision to bench his four key players, that caused the team disciplinary action from NBA commissioner David Stern, who fined the Spurs $250,000, two of his biggest stars are featured in a leaked Halloween photo.

San Antonio Spurs stars Tim Duncan and Tony Parker had some fun at NBA referee Joey Crawford's expense at a Halloween party this year, based on a photo that which first appeared on Reddit.

Duncan and Parker were photographed holding fake guns to the head of someone else dressed as Crawford.

It is unclear whether the picture might draw another disciplinary action on both players from NBA commissioner Stern, but Spurs fans were quick to defend their players saying the two were just "having fun."

What is HIV?

HIV stands for 'human immunodeficiency virus'. HIV is a virus (of the type called retrovirus) that infects cells of the human immune system, and destroys or impairs their function.

What is AIDS?

AIDS stands for 'acquired immunodeficiency syndrome' and is a surveillance definition based on signs, symptoms, infections, and cancers associated with the deficiency of the immune system that stems from infection with HIV.

What are the symptoms of HIV?

Most people infected with HIV do not know that they have become infected, because they do not feel ill immediately after infection. However, some people at the time of seroconversion develop “Acute retroviral syndrome” which is a glandular fever-like illness with fever, rash, joint pains and enlarged lymph nodes.

Seroconversion refers to the development of antibodies to HIV and usually takes place
between 1 and 6 weeks after HIV infection has happened.

What is antiretroviral therapy?

Standard antiretroviral therapy (ART) consists of the combination of at least three antiretroviral (ARV) drugs to maximally suppress the HIV virus and stop the progression of HIV disease.

  • However progress is uneven. Since 2001, the number of people newly infected in the Middle East and North Africa increased by more than 35%. In Eastern Europe and Central Asia, there has also been an increase in new HIV infections in recent years.
  • 1,000 babies are still born with HIV every day, and 63 percent of all young people living with HIV are young women

AIDS-related deaths

  • In 2011, 1.7 million [1.5 million–1.9 million] people died from AIDS-related causes worldwide—24% fewer deaths than in 2005.
