A trip down memory lane of the arenas that have provided the San Antonio Spurs one of the best home-court advantages in the NBA since 1973.

While the NBA works on plans to resume the 2019-2020 season it is apparent that there will be no more regular-season home games played by the San Antonio Spurs.  So for those hoping to watch a home game in the near future their plans are indefinitely postponed by COVID-19.

Despite the lack of home games in the foreseeable future, when play resumes Spurs fans will watch and enjoy more memorable and heartbreaking moments.  Every fan has an individual story for becoming a fan of our beloved San Antonio Spurs.  It may be from watching your favorite Spurs player, and there have been lots of great options to choose from, the Spurs being the closest (and only) professional sports team to choose from, or it was a way of bonding with family and/or friends.

Whatever the reasons, being a fan of the San Antonio Spurs has brought great joy, and some heartache, to Spurs fans. Whether those games were watched at home, at a local restaurant/bar, across the globe, or live in the arena, they are memories to be cherished.

And although the Spurs arenas may not hold the allure of Madison Square Garden or the history of The Forum or The Boston Garden, the Spurs and the arenas they’ve played in have a great history and many memorable moments for San Antonio Spurs fans.  As we continue to wait for San Antonio Spurs basketball, let’s take a look back at the different arenas that have housed our favorite team over the years.
