San Antonio Spurs

So as y’all can tell by some of my previous posts.. I really  do enjoy sports. I like to watch basketball and baseball games on my days off a lot of my paycheck does go to sporting events and I think it is totally worth it. My favorite team ever is the San Antonio Spurs. I really do love watching basketball, I enjoy watching it more than baseball. The reason why I get to watch more baseball games is because I live here in Houston and it is very convenient. 

The San Antonio Spurs are one of the four former American Basketball Association teams to stay in tact in the NBA after the ABA-NBA merger. The Spurs have five NBA championships. The Spurs currently rank first among active franchises for the highest winning percentage in NBA history, and have a winning head-to-head regular season record against every active NBA franchise

In their 38 NBA seasons since 1976–1977, the Spurs have won 20 division titles. They have made the playoffs in 24 of the last 25 seasons (since 1989–1990) and have only missed the playoffs four times since entering the NBA; they have not missed the playoffs in the 18 seasons since Tim Duncan was drafted by the Spurs in 1997. He actually just turned 40 on the 25th he is also known as Old man River walk. 

They  won their championships in, 1999, 2003, 2005, 2007,2014. They also have 6 division titles in these years, 1999, 2003, 2005, 2007,  201, 2014. Tim Duncan has been with the Spurs every year that they have won a championship. 

The Spurs set several NBA attendance records while playing at the Alamodome including the largest crowd ever for a NBA game in 1999, and the Spurs continue to sell out the smaller AT&T  on a regular basis.

The San Antonio Spurs original name was the Dallas Chaparrals. They were actually a Dallas team at the beginning but ended up moving to San Antonio because of money issues even though they were a good team. 

In 1990, they unveiled their new logo called the “Fiesta” logo. The logo had the silver spur with black text. The background was made to look like a flag with teal, pink and orange colors. It is said that those colors were used to represent the Mexican and Chicano population of San Antonio. This was and is my favorite logo that the Spurs have used.
