    In another post, it says “Spurs fam, RSVP to one of our watch parties in San Antonio or Austin at the link in our bio!”

    The Spurs should (and already do) fervently court Austin money and fans to solidify the team's claim on the city. That doesn't mean SA is going to lose the Spurs, though. The team needs both cities to get enough market share. Simply moving and being the Austin Spurs won't change anything.

    San antonio has way way cheaper land than austin. YOU CANNOT BUILD AN ARENA IN TRAVIS COUNTY THE SOCCER CLUB ALREADY TRIED AND HAD TO TAKE THE 5TH SPOT ON THEIR LIST. The prospect of moving to Austin decreases substantially you realize it'll be in cedar park or Buda. .

    If the Spurs move I don’t think it would be to Austin. That’s kinda a lateral move in my opinion.

    Austin Spurs fans, like myself take the short drive down to watch them play. If they leave San Antonio for Austin they will lose a good portion of their fan base and all the casual military folks that watch them.

    Austin is a cool city but a good portion of the folks who live here don’t care about basketball like that due to all the other stuff to do here from my little knowledge. Where as the folks in San Antonio love the team

    That’s super true.

    prices are sky rocketing. I’ve been thinking of moving to San Antonio because it’s cheaper

    Getting that Austin money while helping develop San Antonio as a city. Smart plan.

    Austin already stole San Antonio's MLS franchise -- why not the Spurs?

    But seriously, Austin is the only place the Spurs could move where I would still enthusiastically support them.

    I grew up in both those towns.

    They're trying to make the Spurs the NBA team of Austin like how Jerry has made the Cowboys SA's NFL team. Right now Austin is a toss up between Spurs/Mavs/Rox/rest of NBA.

    As for the stadium, if they were planning on moving to Austin, they would have gotten in on the Moody arena being built on UT campus right now. The Austin FC owner had some insane locations on his want list for their stadium. Auditorium Shores being the most pie in the sky, which is mainly why they ended up where they are at. Plus it was a chemical waste site that the city essentially gave to them.

    NBA arenas and on-campus college arenas are completely different animals.

    Agreed but it’s not being built as your typical on campus arena. The goal is to be a hub for concerts as well since they’re tearing down the Flan on 35. I was thinking that it could be a split use like MSG does for St John’s and the Knicks or Philly does with Villanova.

    The move to Austin will make no difference when it comes to FA. I will never get the hype in here about Austin.

    We’re basing this on an investment in a gaming team and because they’re having a watch party in Austin?

    Fox Mulder would think you people are out there

    I’ve lived in Austin for 30 hrs and think SA is the perfect city for the Spurs.
    They are intertwined beautifully with the community, in fact, they pretty much wrote the book on how to do that.
    They can’t pull out from the deep infrastructure they have created.

    Austin would not cheer like SA. There would be very few lifers here in the fan base. Half the people in Austin will move somewhere else within a decade. It’s a young and transient city. I love Austin, but, SA has too much heart to leave.

    They'd sell more luxury boxes in Austin.

    The Spurs should go back to downtown SA (or downtown Austin for that matter). We have one of the sh!ttiest arena locations in the league. Put it within walking distance to the hotels and nightlife and build more around it. The current location is terrible.

    What, you don't enjoy waiting in line 20 minutes for $30 parking, or walking through stockyards and getting harassed by homeless people on the way to the game?

    Darn en led Millennials these days
