Who knew that Brad Pitt was a Spurs fan?

Well, no one can know for sure since he's never posted about them on social media, he's never made his way to the Alamo City for a home game (as far as we know), but his $40,000 bid on "an exclusive experience with the San Antonio Spurs" speaks volumes.

The Associated Press reports that Pitt won a bid on a Spurs package at fellow actor Sean Penn's Haitian Relief Organization benefit in Los Angeles on Saturday. There's no word on who else bid on some time with the Spurs. There presently aren't any details as to what this "exclusive experience" includes, when it will be or where it will take place.

Maybe Brad Pitt will ball up with Kawhi Leonard? Or go on a walkabout with Patty Mills? Go clubbing with Danny Green? Get some language lessons from Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker? Maybe they'll all go have some margs on the River Walk or party it up during Fiesta together. Or maybe Pitt will have a small role in the team's H-E-B commercials?

We'll have some fun guessing until we know for sure.
