In memory of the franchise from San Antonio, originally the Dallas Chaparrals, Throwback Thursdays is featuring the best Spur to ever hit the hardwood, 9-time NBA All-Star George “Iceman” Gervin.

One cool cat he was. It definitely helps to be sporting silver and black too. You cannot go wrong with that color scheme.

Did you know Iceman played a season in Chicago with the Bulls? So odd.

Gervin has impacted many other NBA players, such as Gary Payton, who idolized Iceman as a kid. Word on the street is when The Glove was asked to explain what he liked so much about Gervin, Payton responded, “he’s just so saucy.”

For more of Payton’s eloquence you can tune in to NBA TV for some of the more entertaining NBA commentary around. For more coverage of throwback uniforms from the various sports leagues, you can navigate your browser to Rocksoft every Thursday.
