Tim Duncan claims hotel Spurs stayed at is haunted


By all accounts, Tim Duncan is not a man who fabricates things. Duncan keeps his talking to a minimal and is a relative straight shooter when he does feel the need to speak.

These factors are important when you consider the recent experience by teammate Jeff Ayres and Duncan when they stayed at the Claremont Resort for their game against the Golden State Warriors. Apparently, the two are convinced the hotel is haunted by the supernatural.

From Dan McCartney of Spurs Nation:

“You get in at whatever time. I took my room key. I could hear stuff in the hallway, like people in their rooms," Ayres said. "So I’m thinking people are watching TV or whatever. So I get to my door, and my key doesn’t work, but it sounds like there’s somebody in my room. Like I hear a little baby, not crying but making noise. I’m like, ‘What the heck?’ I keep trying my key and it doesn’t work. So I go downstairs to get a new key, and I tell them (somebody’s in the room).

“So they call the room, and nobody answers. They’re like, ‘We can get you a new key and send you up with security and make sure nobody’s there, because there shouldn’t be anybody in there.’ Then they’re like, ‘We’ll just get you a new room.’ It was the creepiest thing. I heard a couple of other guys heard babies in the hallway, kids running down the hallway. Creepy. I really heard voices and a baby in the room, and there wasn’t anybody in there. It was crazy.”

Duncan corroborated the story by saying:

"I heard a baby in his room. There was somebody or something in his room, yeah. I definitely heard something. It wasn't creepy, because I assumed it was really somebody in the room, and they gave him the wrong room. But when they told me the story the next day about calling up there and no one in the room, it's at that point you get chills. I totally agreed with him. There was a baby there, absolutely."

Zoinks! This seems more like a job for the Mystery Gang than the Spurs.

In all seriousness though, this account doesn't seem nearly as spooky as tales of haunted hotels told before. I'd much prefer to deal with eery baby spirits than with the wrath of a victim's vengeance.
