The San Antonio Spurs released their new jerseys on Friday morning.

Over the past week, NBA teams had their new jerseys released. This is as Nike took over the designs, and will have their logo on the front of every team’s new design. The San Antonio Spurs were one of the few teams left that didn’t have their uniform revealed.

On Friday morning, that changed, as the Spurs officially released their new threads for the 2017-18 NBA season. The Association and Icon editions, instead of the usual Home and Away, were unveiled on the San Antonio Spurs Twitter page.

This uniform seems like a modernized or updated version of the look the Spurs wore for the past handful of seasons. The letters and numbers are solid white, unlike the old jersey that had the black outline and the white outline beyond that. The same changes went for the white jersey, which has fully white letters and numbers.

The new “SA” logo that’s inside a basketball makes its uniform debut, too. It surfaced online over the past few months, but never made its way on to official jerseys like this.

The spur remains as the “U” on both uniforms, something that’s been part of Spurs uniforms for decades. But, other than that, Nike’s Association and Icon uniforms for San Antonio look similar to the old style under Adidas.

There are two jerseys left to be revealed, as every team will get four uniforms. No one had their alternates officially announced yet, however, so it may not be until the fall when fans see if the Spurs go for the “fiesta” theme for a third jersey or use a throwback look.
