San Antonio Spurs Tickets : The Spurs Perfect Record In Nba Series Is Surpassed Only By The Bulls

The San Antonio Spurs are an American professional basketball team based in San Antonio, Texas. They are part of the Southwest Division of the Western Conference in the National Basketball Association (NBA).

The Spurs are one of four former American Basketball Association teams (along with the Nets, Pacers, and Nuggets) to remain intact in the NBA after the 1976 ABA-NBA merger and is the only former ABA team to have won an NBA championship. The Spurs have won four NBA championships, more than any NBA franchise except the Boston Celtics, Los Angeles Lakers, and Chicago Bulls.

The Spurs’ perfect record in NBA Finals series is surpassed only by the Chicago Bulls, who have won six without a loss;the Bulls and Spurs are the only two teams to maintain perfect records through multiple Finals series. As of July 2009, the Spurs rank third among active franchises for the highest winning percentage in NBA history; they have only missed the playoffs 4 times as an NBA franchise.

In their 33 NBA seasons, since 1976/1977, the Spurs have captured 17 division titles, which gives the Spurs the most division titles in the NBA during that 33-year span (the Lakers are second with 16). They have made the playoffs in 19 of the last 20 seasons, and have not missed the playoffs in the 12 seasons since Tim Duncan came to the Spurs in 1997.

The Spurs are the city’s only team in any of the four major U.S. professional sports leagues. They are currently the best team in the NBA. Spurs players are active members of the San Antonio community, and many former Spurs are still active in San Antonio, like David Robinson with the Carver Academy and George Gervin with the George Gervin Youth Center.

The Spurs set several NBA attendance records while playing at the Alamodome, including the largest crowd ever for a NBA Finals game in 1999, and the Spurs continue to sell out the smaller, more intimate AT&T Center (formerly SBC Center) on a regular basis.

In February of each season, the team is forced into an extended road-trip due to the occupation of its arena by the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo. This is informally known as the “Rodeo Road Trip.”Since 1999, the Spurs have consistently posted winning road records during this period, including an NBA-record longest single road trip winning streak (8 games, achieved in 2003).

When Spurs have won the NBA Championship, the team’s victory parade included the team traveling the San Antonio River on boats adjacent to the San Antonio River Walk.

Since 1997, the Spurs have won 69.6 percent of their games, the best winning percentage in professional sports.

During the 2010 NBA Draft, the Spurs managed to acquire the highest draft pick since the Tim Duncan draft a decade earlier. They drafted rookie James Anderson from Oklahoma State at #20.However, Anderson was soon sitting out of the first half of the season due to injuries.

The Big Three however maintained a good healthy status for the ’10 part of the season, and went on to obtain the league’s best starting record of 25/4 by Christmas Eve. Also fueling the Spurs’ re-emergence was a thoroughly revamped Richard Jefferson, whom over the summer was personally coached by Popovich to find his touch in the game. English bigman Ryan Richards was another draftee of the Spurs, this one at #49, however two shoulder surgeries soon left him out of any immediate possibilities.

Fans Left Out Of Super Bowl, But Record Number Watch On Tv

Aside from the entertainment aspects of Sunday’s Super Bowl broadcast, there were several popular topics on Monday surrounding the people who watched the game.

Students who are accruing college credits in fields related to event planning, marketing or business were likely discussing the seating debacle at the game’s venue, Cowboys Stadium in Dallas. According to The Washington Post, approximately 1,200 temporary seats were were not in place in time for a fire marshal to approve them. Thus, 850 fans were moved to a different location and about 400 were not admitted into the stadium and seated in an area with TV monitors.

“Any time you’re putting on an event of this magnitude, you have your challenges,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said during a press conference on Monday. “We’ve had them this week. We had an issue [Sunday] with several seats for our fans. It’s something that we have been taking very seriously, working at it. We apologize to those fans that were impacted by this.”

Students who are taking college courses in public relations took note of the NFL’s response. The league paid each of the 400 displaced fans triple the face value of their tickets and offered them seats to next year’s Super Bowl in Indianapolis.

Richard Dandomir of the New York Times criticized FOX for not adequately reporting about the ticket fiasco. Aside from a brief mention of the situation before the game, the network’s broadcasters and field reporters made no other comment regarding the displaced fans or the potential safety issues that weren’t addressed in time.
“The Steelers and the Packers were Foxs appropriate focus. But every time the network cut to shots of fans watching on a big screen outside the stadiumI expected FOXs lead announcer, Joe Buck, especially, to say something, or for some reporting to be done,” Dandomir reported.

Americans who did not have tickets to the big game have made news as well. According to Entertainment Weekly, Super Bowl XLV is the most-watched telecast in TV history, drawing 111 million viewers. Football’s title tilt has now broken viewership records four years in a row.

Bloomberg reports that the major-market TV rating for Sunday’s game was a 47.9, which ties Super Bowl XXI in 1987 as the NFL’s highest-rated telecast.
