With all three of its NBA teams eliminated, the state of Texas currently features a wide variety of disgruntled sports fans. It’s been a really rough couple of days for one particular Texan, though. Not only did a Spurs fan by the name of Phillip Lozano have to watch his team lose four games in a row to miss out on a trip to the NBA Finals, but he’s also had his Ginoborcyle (new term I’ll be using to describe any motorcycle with Manu Ginobili’s face on it) seized in a drug raid.

The owner of a highly customized Spurs theme motorcycle was arrested Thursday on charges that he intended to deliver drugs and was found in possession of less than a gram of cocaine and marijuana.
Phillip Lozano, 34, was released that same day after posting a $3,000 bond to cover the felony charge.
He was arrested when Bexar County Sheriff’s deputies raided a home on Blonde Canyon Thursday morning, seizing $10,000 in cash, an all terrain vehicle, car and that motorcycle — a 2009 Suzuki Hayabusa, which Lozano covered with various Spurs’ logos and Manu Ginóbili’s face.
His girlfriend was also arrested.
An image of his motorcycle was featured in the San Antonio Express-News as part of the paper’s coverage of Spurs’ playoff run.
Also according to mysanantonio.com, Lozano had just begun the transformation of his bike this week.
Well, at least he got to be the coolest motorist in San Antonio for a day or two. Here are some more pictures of the bike, which features remarkable craftsmanship and attention to detail.
On a positive note, Phil, you’re about to get a fantastic rating on the Swag-O-Meter!
