Spurs Gear Up for 50-Year Anniversary Celebration

Spurs-50-logo

The Spurs’ storied history began on October 10, 1973 in HemisFair Arena with 6,000 fans in attendance, so the franchise will celebrate its 50th anniversary in a little more than a year. The team was the first ABA team to move to the NBA and win a title.

That first game was an ABA match up between the Spurs and the San Diego Conquistadors. Tom Nissalke coached the team and future NBA coach George Karl and James Silas led the team on the court. George Gervin would join the team soon after.

The Spurs organization have unveiled a new logo commemorating the 50th anniversary in a video on Twitter. The organization says the new logo will be used prominently in the coming seasons.

The new black, gold, and silver logo features the number 50 surrounded by the familiar spur graphic. It includes a banner at the top with the words “Established in 1973” and one at the bottom with five stars signifying the 5 NBA Championships the team has won.

Many Spurs fans commented on Twitter that it seemed appropriate that the logo featured the number 50 prominently, since it represents both the anniversary, and the jersey number of David Robinson, the team’s first NBA MVP.
