    A spur is a smaller ridge coming off at an angle perpendicular to a mountain ridge.

    It's called the Spurs because all the other possibilities were too long:
    The San Antonio Cowboy Hats
    The San Antonio Bull Horns on a Car Hood
    The San Antonio Blazing Saddles
    The San Antonio Cow-Tippers

    It's because before they were the LA Lakers they were the Minneapolis Lakers. Minnesota is the Great Lake State.

    Same reason that they claimed the Minneapolis championships...because they knew they would never catch Boston...so they tried to say they had also won those titles...

    Only laker fans believe this is legit...

    Its a painful way to motivate a large animal to follow commands.

    giddy up...

    Or, its just another of a million horsey accessories. Personally I am more fond of hoof picks. noun

    Same thing as if OKC claimed Jack Sikma to be a savior. Or Gus Williams.

    OKC ,by Laker standards, has already won a championship. BTW the championship Minn. Lakers were beaten by the Harlem Globe Trotters in one of the years they were champs I do believe... Back when there were 8 NBA teams.

    For God's sake, Patty, if you ever date a cowgirl from Texas DON'T let her wear her boots and spurs to bed. Christ, that hurts something awful.

    Or should I say "Crikey, mate, them spurs dig deep in your arse."

    Judging by the OP's name I would say he/she is from Australia, so it would be like us asking wtf does "throw another shrimp on the barby" mean. Apparently we gained alot of Aussie fans with Patty Mills

    They're actually called prawns down under. So the quote is stupid. No one in AUS has actually said this, ever.

    It was changed for an Austrailan tourism commercial in the US, since it was believed that American tourists wouldn't know what the fuck a prawn was. To be fair, Paul Hogan orignally said it, though he was probably not in Australia when he said it.

    why should we get banned for supporting an aussie making it in one of the best teams in the NBA, let alone even making it to the NBA which is rare.. Patty deserves respect, even more so, because his doing it to rep Australia and Aboriginal kids..

    So if you don't respect us, then I would seriouslyremove ur flag underneath ur avatar cuz its disgusting how you show no aussie spirit.

    A spur is a sharp projection from the main. As in a bone or mountain spur. Is the main. The seconadry is a motivational device for large animals typically horses. This is the meaning the team uses. Initially spurs were simply semi sharp projections worn on boots and this is still true in some areas, the projections on fighting birds are also called spurs. The version the team uses have a many pointed wheel called a rowel. Spur can also be used as a verb meaning to use a set of spurs and or to cause something.
