Spurs' anthem singer back for Game 4
Before Game 3 of the NBA Finals in San Antonio, an 11-year-old boy named Sebastien de la Cruz took the floor in a mariachi outfit and sang the national anthem:
Because some people are racist and mean and the Constitution guarantees everyone the right to say anything they want, Twitter was inundated with all the unoriginal jokes and mean-spirited remarks you can imagine people would make about a Latino kid in a traditional Mexican outfit singing the Star Spangled Banner.
And so you know what 11-year-old de la Cruz did for Game 4? He did it again, that’s what. The whole act. The singing, the outfit, the whole thing.
And you know why he did it? Because … we’ll let Sebastien explain it himself.
"My father and my mama told me you should never judge people by how they look," he told KENS-5 in San Antonio.
And this time, he even had a special introduction.
It's no surprise the Spurs wanted him back after obliterating the Heat in Game 3. Kid certainly has the look too:
