SAN ANTONIO — They're back!
The San Antonio Spurs unveiled their 2022-23 Nike NBA Classic Edition uniforms that pay homage to the team’s storied 50-year legacy and look forward to the next 50 years.
So it was fitting that team legend and one of the original Spurs players, George "Iceman" Gervin, was the one to make the announcement and show off the old school uniforms making their comeback next season.
It features the “San Antonio” wordmark across the black-on-black jersey chest and is part of the team’s season-long celebration taking place during the 2022-23 campaign to commemorate 50 years of Spurs basketball in San Antonio beginning in 1973.
The shorts will also have a throwback vibe with the team logo on the sides surrounded by the classic diamond shape.
Following the announcement, Spurs fans were quick to react and the overwhelming majority are overjoyed with the jersey they have been demanding for years.
Here's a sample of what fans said:
Fans will have to exercise patience if they want to grab one of these jerseys.
