LOOK: Fan creates Spurs 'City Edition' jersey mock-up with Mexican flare
The San Antonio Spurs and Nike unveiled the team's "City Edition" jerseys recently and it was met with mixed feelings from the Silver and Black faithful.
The camouflage-patterned jersey tops and shorts were modeled after the U.S. Army Combat Uniform and honor the servicemen and servicewomen of the U.S. Armed Forces, many of whom have spent time in Military City USA (San Antonio) during their careers.
However, many fans felt the latest new Spurs' threads should reflect the city's Mexican culture or pay homage to the team's 90's "Fiesta Colors."
Enter one Spurs fans who took it upon himself to create a mock-up of what he felt the new jerseys should have looked like.
Gabe Froman (@GDUB18T) created his own "City Edition" Spurs jerseys with a south of the border flare to represent San Antonio's strong Mexican heritage with a mariachi look.
Needless to say, Gabe's concept was a hit among Spurs fans.
The team's latest jersey is a nice gesture to the military presence in San Antonio but the camo look had been done before.
Fans obviously want something fresh and new based on their negative reaction for the most part.
Here are a few more samples of what fans were hoping for:
