Count some of the San Antonio Spurs among believers that there are ghosts at Berkeley's Claremont Resort and Spa. Or at least something strange.
The Spurs stayed at the landmark while here for Monday's game against the Warriors. Peculiar noises bothered the unflappable Tim Duncan as well as center Jeff Ayres, according to the San Antonio Express-News.
"I could hear stuff in the hallway, like people in their rooms," Ayres told the Express-News. "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."
Ayres had hotel workers call the room, but no one answered. Duncan also said he heard a baby in Ayres' room. Legend has it that a young girl who allegedly died at the hotel haunts the place.
"It wasn't creepy, because I assumed it was really somebody in the room, and they gave him the wrong room," Duncan said. "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. I heard about the history of the place, and I'd rather not (stay there again)."
