At 47, Tim Derk had long been the San Antonio Spur's crowd-pleasing Coyote and was widely regarded as the NBA's funniest, most inventive mascot. Then, as the Spurs were headed toward their third championship, Derk suffered a massive stroke and his seemingly charmed existence was shattered. Here, he recounts his courageous battle to recover from the stroke's devastating impact, both on his body and his career.
