Love ‘em or hate ‘em, it would be hard to argue that the Spurs’ special camouflage alternate jerseys weren’t a fantastic success from a civic standpoint.
Worn during Wednesday’s victory over Washington as part of military appreciation night, the jerseys earned $186,000 for the franchise’s Silver and Black Give Back program through a post-game auction.
The Spurs declined to reveal individual totals. (An Express-News Twitter follower said Tim Duncan’s jersey went for more than $60,000.)
Also up for auction were a ball and book signed by Sean Elliott, and a team-signed game ball.
The funds will be used on various youth programs, including Team Up Challenge, which supports community initiatives, and the Spurs Youth Basketball League.
