The San Antonio Spurs and the 29 other NBA teams will receive new jerseys from Nike, but a graphic designer went one step ahead and created impressive new designs.

The San Antonio Spurs will be one of the 30 NBA teams receiving new jerseys from Nike. These will go into effect for the 2017-18 season, along with the removal of designated home and away jerseys.

As an article on NBA.com noted, NBA players gave input toward these uniform designs. “25 years of technological research conducted by Nike at different levels of basketball” is part of the description for this as well.

However, before all 30 teams have their jersey reveal, Brian Begley, a designer from New Jersey, went one step ahead. He posted five uniform designs for every team on Instagram, Nike symbol on the front and all. His Spurs uniforms can be seen below:

@NBA @Nike Uniform Design Concepts for the @spurs. With the addition of the new logo, this is how I see a modernized Spurs uniform. Along with an alternate “Fiesta” colorway and a couple throwbacks, with one reinvented.

Begley noted how he factored in the new Spurs logo, which slowly made its way onto the team’s current merchandise. It looks sharp on the shorts and gives a bolder look on the front of the jersey.

The “Fiesta” jersey is a play on the old logo of the Spurs from the 1990’s. It may give fans nostalgia from the old look of the decade when David Robinson ruled the paint for the Alamo City.

There are the last two jerseys, which go back to the retro Spurs of the George Gervin days. It’s a modern take, with the rounded “San Antonio” that forms a half-circle around the number.

Aside from the Spurs’ jersey designs, it’s worth seeing what Begley did with the other 29 teams. While the NBA and Nike probably won’t go through an extensive makeover for the jerseys, seeing these creations may make fans wish they go all out.
