Spurs scrap colors in favor of black, white, silver

SAN ANTONIO -- The San Antonio Spurs have said goodbye to the Alamodome, and now they're doing the same with their festive-colored logo.

The Spurs' toned-down logo.

On Monday the Spurs officially scrapped the bright brushstrokes of teal, orange and fuchsia that have adorned the team's logo since 1988.

In their place will be a muted combination of black, white and silver.

"With our upcoming move to the SBC Center, we thought it was the perfect time to return to our traditional primary colors,'' said Russ Bookbinder, the team's executive vice president.

The new-old look will be displayed across midcourt of the floor at the SBC Center, still under construction on San Antonio's east side, a few miles from the Alamodome. The 18,500-seat arena is scheduled to be ready for the start of the 2002-03 season.

The Spurs' uniform lettering will also be changed slightly from a three-dimensional format to a two-dimensional block style, Bookbinder said.

I'm all for it. I travel to SA, have friends there etc. Every time I saw those terrible colors it reminded me of SC. People paint their homes those colors. The old timers believed if you painted your home those bright colors it kept the "bad" spirits away. It was way beyond tacky to see beautiful old southern homes painted in those horrible colors!

The tropical colors were crappy.

And apparently Duncan didn't like them.

What? Did the tropical colors make his ass look big?

<< What? Did the tropical colors make his ass look big? >>

No idea. I just know that until Duncan signs a contract in 2003, the Spurs aren't going to change the brand of toilet paper in the locker rooms without consulting with him.
