The San Antonio Spurs have already had two Throwback Nights where the team wears jerseys and shorts from the old 67-73 Dallas Chaparrals team where the Spurs originated. But something looks wrong at first glance. The jersey is really loose, the shorts are unnecessarily baggy and the hair looks fresh from the barber. You want to make a Throwback Night officially legit? Just one night a year, every team should have a 100% authentic Throwback Night.
I’m talking about afro’s, long hair with headbands, Jerry West-like comb overs, SHORT SHORTS, tight jersey’s and of course the old Converse All-Stars. How would you like Blake Griffin with an old Kenny Walker High-Top fade? Or Dwayne Wade in some John Stockton short shorts. Maybe even Kobe Bryant with an old Dr. J-like afro gliding the baseline. If you took a look at the fans, they go all out when a 70′s night comes along. Why can’t the player’s do the same to pay their respect’s to their elders.
