Shot of the Week: The Four Horsemen




Whiskey, whiskey and more whiskey. (Dustin Dooling)

The San Antonio Spurs dynasty was forged on the prowess of the big three—Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili. Together, they led the post-Admiral Spurs to three titles, 2003, ’05 and ’07. In recent years however, the big three have needed some help closing out the season with a ring. Enter Kawhi Leonard. Leonard’s versatility on offense and defense has re-forged this team—a team no one thought could recuperate from last year’s crushing game six defeat.

Now it is Miami who must stare down oblivion.

In honor of the Spurs, the big three, the new Four Horsemen and the coming apocalypse for the Miami Heat hype machine, I give you Jack, Johnny, Jim and Jose—The Four Horsemen. Take one for the team!

½ ouce Jack Daniels whiskey

½ ounce Jim Beam Bourbon whiskey

½ ounce Johnny Walker Scotch whiskey

½ ounce Jose Cuervo tequila

Shake with ice and strain into a shot glass.

As for my prediction

No Ray Allen heroics this time. Spurs in six!
