The San Antonio Spurs’ roster has been growing older over the years, with centerpiece Tim Duncan (age 36) in the twilight of his career and a Western Conference Finals loss to the younger, up-and-coming Oklahoma City Thunder seeming to end one last sprint towards a title. The team that won three NBA championships in the 2000s mostly revamped aside from Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobli.
So, with the times changing, the Spurs decided to make a fashion change, unveiling a new, slick alternate jerseys today.
“Our traditional uniforms have a very classic look and our new jerseys are a nice alternative to keep things fresh,” said Spurs Guard Danny Green in a statement.
The silver jerseys with black trim and the Spurs’ iconic secondary logo on the front, will be worn during the 2012-13 season and debut in the team’s home opener vs. the Thunder on Nov. 1.
“We are introducing a new and unique Spurs jersey this coming season,” said Rick Pych, Spurs Sports & Entertainment President of Business Operations, said in a statement. “The new design simply features our iconic â??spur’ logo and it is positioned over the heart as it has such enormously deep roots with our team, fans and the entire community. It’s the first-ever NBA jersey logo without any writing or peripheral design on the front of the jersey and we’re very glad to be introducing this new use of the classic icon of the Spurs to our fans.”
What do you think of the new jerseys? The Spurs definitely seemed to need a change, but sometimes the classic look is better.
