Do the Spurs need a new uniform look?

As you can see I'm bored, so I dare ask the question. dont get me wrong I like the ones the SPURS wear, but do they need flare in them or should we just stick to plain black & white w/ a touch of gray. GO! SPURS! GO!

This happens at the end of every other season.
Usually after the seasons we get eliminated.

What comes first - flames or photoshop featuring the old "Fiesta" colors?

Can't wait to find out!

This topic comes up once a year or so...I would keep the unis the way they are, but I would like to see a third uni, like a throw back in gray, not like those hideous silver ones we had recently, but a nice gray uni with San Antonio across the front, instead of Spurs.

No more than we need to a new PA announcer and intro song IMO... Those should be first on the list of "changes".

At least add a sweet spur on the back above the name and number like every other team has. Black is a great color though, don't change a thing. We're vintage.

Nope. Its perfect. When we are on the road we are the BAD guys in BLACK. When we are at home we are the GOOD guys in white. Not a thing wrong with them uni's.
Love em and I dont ever want to see fiesta colors or any other stuff defacing a classic uniform.

The colors are perfect, but maybe the style could be updated a little, like maybe to some kinda v-neck instead of the scoop. Pin stripes are always an option too.

Thats what I was thinking...maybe a v-neck look with the same colors, but not the fiesta colors...something more hip & modern...

That's exactly how it goes with this team. For the 2002-03 season, the last time they changed the logo, the uniforms recieved (very) minor alterations.

I thought the silver ones looked good. Hideous would be the gray Nets unis that they wore in the finals. If ours would look anything like that I don't want gray.

I like the idea of the same basic design we have now, BUT add the v-neck (which also means a different material for the jersey since most v-neck jerseys have that new "lighter weight" material) and add a Spurs logo to the back above the name!!

Put "SAN ANTONIO" on the road blacks, bring back the Silver Saturday's to wear on special occasions, and leave the rest alone. I still haven't recovered from the taco cabana crap they did to our logo that now permamently stains my 1999 champions hat.

I only hope, as I've said before on this topic (and likely will every time it comes up), is that the "SAN ANTONIO" looks good. I like the idea, but on the '70's jerseys they looked like iron-on letters you can buy anywhere.

I'd like to see it - but only if someone comes up with a good font for "SAN ANTONIO".

Not sure about changing the uniforms completely, but I have to say one thing that really pisses me off about the Mavs is the star they have on the back of their jerseys. It's like they have Cowboys envy and/or are saying they are THE team of the Lone Star state. I think we have a right to have a star on the back of our jerseys too.

Houston's welcome to add one too. I give them permission.

Hell no. You start changing the uniform then it keeps changing.

An update is WAY overdue, keep the colors, get a v neck, and PLEASE change that lame looking font, it looks too freakin square, uninventive and western. It's cool that the Spurs are a low key team personality wise, and they get ignored by the media for that and being here deep in south Texas, but damn it's time for a change in the marketing dept.

You understand that when your main colors are black, silver, white and gray that you don't need to mess too much with the formula. The unis are some of the best in pro sports. The fiesta colors era was such a debacle because the logo was the only place we saw the colors. It's not like we ever trotted out in teal jerseys (thank God). Remember, for the last 20 years or so other teams in other sports have unveiled black jerseys and apparel as a marketing ploy. The field trends to the ones wearing black, not the other way around. The logo update for 2002-03 was perfect. We can play at the margins, but SA's corporate identity is great and resonates.

The Mavs did Cowboy up their colors after Cuban bought them. I like the "M" and their unis are cool. I actually don't like the compressed horse face/basketball logo. It looks like a Dali painting that still hasn't melted yet.

Mavs' logo sucks.
If they were truly mavericks, they would HAVE no logo because mavericks are, by definition, unbranded.

Of course, they also do not abide by any rules or regulations. Give them credit. They've got that down to a science.

Spurs' logo is great and their uni's are great too.

If anything needs changing, it's the intro music.

I cannot comprehend why (in this age of retro jersey popularity) why this jersey has not been resurrected. It is so sweet...

...it might also be cool to do a red white and blue Chaps jersey, which is what the franchise was before it moved to SA.

Usually all Tony has to do is use the neckband to wipe the sweat from his face a few times, and then the neck is a bent out of shape the rest of the game.

VVVV This is what I'm talking about VVVVV
Ah man, that pic just depressed me....what could have been.

Oh hell yes change those things up. Keep the color scheme cuz its the best in the nba, go ahead with the v neck, keep logo, maybe a new style of numbers and lettering, and change the shorts a little. Oh yeah and i happen to like those silver ones they had. The throwback grey,silver,black and whites are also nice. Ones not to follow 1.Nets ugly grey with golf shirt print on the sides. 2.Anything penstripe3.Rockets plain Yao Ming style 3.Anything involving pastels ie. the spurs horrible paint stripe logo and the colors associated with it.
