If you didn’t know, this season Spurs.com is doing a series of one-on-one interviews with former San Antonio Spurs players, coaches and front office staff to celebrate the team’s 40-year anniversary. They’re quite interesting and a good way to reminisce about Spurs’ history if you’re into that sort of thing.
This week they talked with Chicago Bulls assistant coach Ron Adams, who was an assistant with the Spurs back from 1992-94. Obviously, a lot has changed about the team since then. They were playing in a different venue and they hadn’t yet experienced the success that the Spurs are now known for in the NBA.
“It was a very different time in the NBA from now,” Adams said. “The Spurs at that time were more of mom-and-pop team. The program was bare bones as far as the amenities, not like today. We did move in the second year to the Alamodome, which was better. Nice big stadium. The growth of the team is like the growth of the river in town. I was walking out on the Riverwalk and they’ve done a really nice job of the adding a natural habitat back there for the birds and so on. It’s well done. I think the spurs steadily upward climb as a basketball organization can kind of be seen in the way of the development of the river, even in the obscure parts of the river.”
