San Antonio Spurs games set NBA regular-season attendance records


San Antonio played its home games at the AT&T Center, but for the team's 50th anniversary, they went back to the Alamodome. 


SAN ANTONIO (AP) — The San Antonio Spurs have said that 68,323 people will watch their return to the Alamodome. This is the most people who have ever watched an NBA regular-season game.

At the end of the third quarter, Spurs Hall of Famer David Robinson told the crowd how many people were there. Robinson said, "Once again, Spurs fans have set the bar for the rest of the league." 


Fans started to yell "Go Spurs Go! "Go Spurs Go!" after hearing "Go Spurs Go!" 


It broke the old record of 62,046 people who went to the Georgia Dome on March 27, 1998 to see Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls play the Atlanta Hawks. 


Gregg Popovich, the coach of San Antonio, said of the record crowd, "Yeah, that's pretty different." "It's a situation where you don't know if they're selling alcohol or not. I think a lot of people will be excited. This is just a fun time for everyone. It makes everyone feel old. It's pretty exciting, actually, to have so many people in one building and to be able to play in front of them. We hope the game goes well." 





San Antonio now plays its home games at the AT&T Center, but for the team's 50th anniversary, they went back to the Alamodome. 


Even though the Spurs are having one of the worst seasons in team history (13-29), playing at the Alamodome gave fans a chance to remember a better time for the team.

Eric Hernandez, a Spurs fan who used to go to games at the Alamodome, said, "Having my son here with me and sharing a past and present memory will be something we will both remember for a long time." 


The franchise began in 1973 at the HemisFair Arena, but it was at the Alamodome that it took its first steps towards becoming one of the most respected NBA teams. 


From 1993 to 2002, the Spurs played at the Alamodome. After that, they moved 3.1 miles south to the AT&T Center. 


In 1999, San Antonio won its first NBA title while playing at the Alamodome. The city's championship party was held in the downtown building. 


The 1996 NBA All-Star Game was also held at the Alamodome. When Michael Jordan won MVP over Shaquille O'Neal, a former San Antonio resident, the crowd booed. 


A Spurs fan from Japan named Taro Kotani said, "It's crazy." "How many people are here. I've never been inside the Dome, but it makes me feel so nostalgic to think about the 1996 All-Star Game and the 1999 Finals. I wasn't there, but this makes me remember a lot." 


Kotani planned his annual trip to San Antonio around Friday's game because he wanted to be there when history was made.
