Are The Spurs’ New Camouflage Jerseys Hideous Or Awesome?
The San Antonio Spurs are considered boring. Their franchise player is named "The Big Fundamental," and their coach likes wine more than basketball.
The jerseys they'll wear against the Wizards soon, though, are not boring.
The San Antonio Spurs unveiled today a new military-inspired uniform in honor of the servicemen and women of the Armed Forces. The Spurs will debut the new uniforms when they host the Washington Wizards on Wednesday, Nov. 13. The Spurs created the camouflage-patterned uniforms to honor and showcase the team’s pride in the city affectionately nicknamed “Military City U.S.A.” San Antonio is home to Joint Base San Antonio, a military installation that includes the Army’s Fort Sam Houston, Randolph Air Force Base and Lackland Air Force Base. It is estimated that more than 300,000 active and retired military and government workers call San Antonio home.
The military uniforms are part of the adidas and NBA Pride Uniform Collection, inspired by each team’s core identity, history and/or region.
The game is one of multiple USAA Salute Night games, which means active military and veterans get "up to a 40% discount on tickets." I'm not sure what "up to" means, but that's how NBA.com puts it. Hopefully it's not a complete money-grab like the NFL's "support" of breast cancer.
If the Spurs wore these regularly? Ew. But for one night: pretty badass.
