I like the idea, although the execution doesn’t work so well for me because of the colors. (Update: As many readers/commenters are pointing out, using the team’s Fiesta colors would have been soooo much better.) Can’t say I love the chest insignia either, as the little tail with the spur feels like an afterthought and doesn’t integrate well with the “X.”
The Spurs will have five uniforms this season: primary white, primary black, the recently unveiled throwback, this new Statement alternate, and a new City alternate that’s yet to be revealed.
