NBA Changes 2019-20

A team's success in an era is the worst reason for why or why not a team should wear that era's uniform today (or use an identity in this case). The fact that they won in the Fiesta era makes that argument a non-starter. 

1.We’ve been in the playoffs since 98, fiesta was phased out in 02.

2. Fiesta had 12 playoff appearances and 1 championship in its era. The Silver and Black have had 13 playoff appearances in its first 16 years, and then since 02 we haven’t missed the playoffs and have won 4 titles in 5 trips to the finals. The total numbers lean heavily toward the Silver and Black and even without it...

3. THE SPURS HAVE NEVER WORN FIESTA. It was only the logo and court and that was for 12 years of the franchises 43 years. Excluding the time spent in Dallas as the Chaparrals.

 

The idea the spurs need fiesta full time is absolutely ridiculous. The Silver and Black are synonymous to the spurs famous culture and loyal fan base. Spurs aren’t a flashy team, aren’t a bandwagon-ing team. They’re the Spurs.

People want the Fiesta back because there isn't anything like it in sports.

 

The uniforms are 100% traditional, but the logo, key, and warmups are bright and exciting. That is something unique to the San Antonio Spurs.

Not too bad for the warriors except im not a fan of the "town" jerseys. I kinda wish the white side stripes were yellow on the blue uniform.

That... Doesn’t make any sense. 

 

 

Why why would they keep the Oakland themed “The Town” jerseys?

Spurs fans would be up in arms if they changed the jerseys that drastically. Atleast I would, we have (I’m biased) a top 3 uniform in the league

 

Not with the updates they made a couple years ago. Fix those and it’s back up there in top 3-5 IMO.

Fiesta was garbage whose time has passed. The Spurs realized that it was stupid to not brand around the beautiful simplicity of black/silver/white, especially given the spartan nature of their organizational culture. 

 

People want it back because they’re not fans or they simply love ‘90s stuff uncritically. Unique doesn’t equal good.

Steve Ballmer is worth $52 billion.

 

What does he need to sell arena naming rights for?

Because he wants to be worth $52 billion not 50

Spurs won a championship in the Fiesta era, so there is no argument against embracing the Fiesta. 

No they didn’t, if by that you mean they won them when there logo had fiesta colors, and court a some here and there sure. But the uniform has been always just about the same uniforms as today.

Exactly. I'm calling fake.

You don't get to dismiss an argument just because it (thankfully) excludes a lot of the awful contrarian uniforms you like ;)

What we have here is a perfect example of how changing a font can make things much better.

But as a advocate for both rebrands. Bad Boys were long gone except Dumars and same for Spurs big 3. Time to rebrand.

The Bad Boys were long gone so the Pistons rebranded to teal and maroon with a cartoon horse logo. Then they wised up, went back to the Bad Boys look (despite said Bad Boys being long gone) and won another title ;) 

 

Though the arrogance and entitlement here is staggering. 

 

Pistons fans: we don't like the teal. Red, white, and blue please. 

Spurs fans: we like the Spurs' no-nonsense brand, keep the fiesta to a minimum please. 

Some guy who isn't a fan of either: screw your teams' traditions and what their fans want, they should do crazy :censored: I like because 90s schlock is popular right now.

Spurs def shouldn’t do fiesta full time, their colors are pretty iconic. Should do a fiesta white jersey with a special court and a throwback with the black San Antonio jersey tho. Do fiesta black year after this year. Few fiesta games a year for holidays would be fun. Definitely would be cool for cinco de mayo if Spurs are still in the playoffs.

I thought it was established that they were bringing back The Town uniform. I'm calling 100% real.

It’s an incredibly clean template, but I’d expect Nike to take every opportunity to highlight their products. Surely they wouldn’t use plain black socks and shoes with no visible swooshes. I’d also expect at least an arm band or two (with swooshes), and those compression pants the guys wear. Only way it really makes sense to me is if this is from the conceptual phase and wouldn’t be part of the official release.

 

Keeping The Town set would be a way to not completely sever ties with Oakland. I actually like the idea of keeping it.

If someone wants to leak some info that Nike no longer requires "association" uniforms to be white, just two years after that Lakers fiasco (which one, they asked), then I may be more amenable to thinking those are real. Probably not too far off from the real thing, though.

"Unique doesn't equal good." This right here is a motto I live by. I can't agree more with that statement. If anybody wants teal Pistons or fiesta Spurs so bad they can go play NBA Live 98.
