As usual with this sort of thing, the Spurs made sure to give us a nice explanation as to why they decided to come up with this particular design.
The new black alternate uniform’s efficient jersey design simply features the iconic Spurs logo prominently over the heart, while the player numbers rest on the right breast. The uniforms feature silver panels with silver, black and white trim and the accompanying shorts also include the Spur logo on each side.
The Spurs will debut the new uniforms at the home opener vs. the Brooklyn Nets on Oct. 30 and will be worn multiple times this season. The Black Signature Spur uniforms will join the lineup of traditional home white and away black uniforms, along with the camouflage military and silver alternate versions. The Spurs debuted the silver version of the Signature Spur uniforms in 2012 and they were the first-ever NBA jersey logo without any writing or peripheral design.
That’s a really fancy way to say that “Hey, we think that just putting a Spur on a basketball jersey by itself is pretty cool, isn’t it?”
Anyways, the interesting part here is that this isn’t replacing the silver version of this uniform, and will just be another option for the team to wear. So yes, even teams like the Spurs aren’t above getting in on the craziness of having multiple alternate uniforms. What a time to be alive, man.
So, now that you’ve seen the finished product, what do you guys think? Is this a solid uniform choice for the Spurs, or should they have just done without it?
