The San Antonio Spurs officially unveiled their new “City Edition” jerseys for the upcoming season. And while some fans were concerned about the team scrapping their outrageously successful Fiesta threads from a year ago, they’ve outdone themselves, combining the lively color scheme with uniforms that pay homage to the George “The Iceman” Gervin era.
The NBA is celebrating its 75th anniversary season by honoring all-time great teams, players, and coaches. But it also appears they wish to pay tribute to defunct franchises that built the league into a professional sports powerhouse. And the Dallas Chaparrals logo on the shorts from San Antonio's humble ABA beginnings is one detail die-hards might appreciate.

The Spurs will debut the latest rendition of their “City Edition” jersey on November 12 as they meet the Dallas Mavericks in a divisional showdown at the AT&T Center. The fresh uniforms also come with an accompanying court design, which takes inspiration from the radiant culture of the local community and commemorates the storied history of this proud organization.
