San Antonio Spurs Logo History

Here's the original San Antonio Spurs logo when they were playing at the San Antonio Convention Center Arena from 1977 thru 1989.

And thank the Lord of Texas we're no longer using this logo, which was adopted by the Spurs during the amazing David Robinson era when they played at the Alamodome.

In a lame effort to inject more color into the team's classic black-and-silver uniform scheme they came up with this multicolored turd. Which quite possibly may have very well influenced the controversially lame and equally sucky 2012 Olympics Logo.

Fortunately, the not-so-masculine extra Miami Vice colors were not incorporated into their uniforms, which, to this day, remain our classic, first class, lean and mean, no nonsense and soon to be four time NBA Championship black and silver.

Our current logo was introduced nationally at the start of the 2003 season. And I've got to say, this is a logo any Spurs fan can wear proudly without having to worry about that garishly nasty, clashing pink and teal.

Go find your favorite team and lot's more sports logo history over at Chris Creamer's wicked cool 2012 Sports Logo site.

Game 2 of the NBA Finals start at 8pm tonight!

Go Spurs!

That's Right,
